berlin modern quilt guild

 Today was an exciting day. Today, the Berlin Modern Quilt Guild met for the first time! Initially, there were only 4 of us planning & starting the group, but in the end we were whopping 8 quilt-a-holics showing up at the meeting.
It was fun to get to know each quilter and an extensive show & tell was held, where we could enjoy Miriam's beautiful poem quilt, Tacha's famous hexie pillow, or the colorful quilt sewn by Hedi.

Heute war ein aufregender Tag. Heute hat sich die Berlin Modern Quilt Guild zum ersten Mal getroffen. Ursprünglich geplant von 4, waren wir am Ende doch ganze 8 Quiltverrückte, die sich zum Treffen aufgemacht haben.
Es hat Spaß gemacht, alle kennen zu lernen und das ausgiebige Show & Tell zu genießen, bei dem wir unter anderem Miriams schönen Quilt, Tachas berühmtes 'Hexed in' Kissen oder den farbenfrohen Quilt von Hedi bewundern durften

My head is still full of all those impressions... I can't seem to tell all what happened. I've done a little recap at the BMQG blog, but only in short, after a introduction, an extensive show & tell followed, then we did a little charm square swap, a little mug rug giveaway for those who brought something for s&t {unfortunately I haven't got a single picture of this mug rug...bummer}, some curve sewing...and then the time was over too soon!
If you want to see all pictures, hop over to the BMQG flickr group!

Mein Kopf ist immer noch so voll von all den Eindrücken, dass ich gar nicht alles wiedergeben kann. Eine ganz kurze Zusammenfassung habe ich auf dem Blog der BMQG geschrieben...wenn Ihr Euch nur die Fotos anschauen wollt, schaut doch mal in der BMQG flickr group vorbei!


  1. Oh that is fabulous! Congrats!!

    Some day I will come to Germany. I'm a first-generation Canadian and would love to go see where my family is from, meet some relatives for real... and I could visit in on a BMQG meeting! ; )

  2. Oh how lucky you are to be able to have a modern quilt guild/group
    That would probably be only reason why I'd want to live near or in a city
    Enjoy and keep sharing with us.

  3. OHMYGOSH -- I almost can't see the quilts for that FABULOUS guild logo -- which one of you geniuses is responsible for that fantastic design? Das Brandenburg(er?) Tor. You guys put all other MQG logos to shame -- That's Brilliant!!!

  4. Wow! I love seeing what modern quilters are making in germany! thanks for sharing! I'm now a follower! :) *from flickr*
