Sydney Modern Quilt Guild

I’m a member of the SMQG which is a small group of enthusiastic modern quilters.  We get together each month and each year we do a group project.  Last year we made a huge hexie quilt which we entered into the annual state quilt guild show and then raffled to raise funds for a donation to the YWCA for young disadvantaged women.  We managed to raise over $1000.00 in just under a month of selling tickets.

The quilt design was based on a rainbow colour scheme design from the book Hexa-Go-Go by Tacha Bruecher  who kindly gave us permission to use the design for the group project.

I chose the warm orange palette – no surprises there – my first ever attempt at doing hexies is below. I was pleased at how they came together.

Here they are in situ – Sel did a great job on the quilting.

We are always happy to have new members, so if you live in Sydney contact me or check out our blog.
