She explained how the job of the background fabric is to compliment the prints and make them stand out, while still pulling the quilt together. And even though we may not be using a traditional grid layout, we are still using some form of sashing and borders to create the negative space.

To motivate everyone to complete last month's green block Kristyn did an improv demo on making fabric slabs from scraps. Lots of great results by the end of the day.
The April meeting will be brought to you by the colour blue, so start getting your blue scraps together.
We are doing our own Riley Blake Challenge with the strip of black and white fabric that was given out. Use this piece of fabric in your mini quilt- with any other fabric you wish to use. Please make a mini that is no larger than 24” x 24” and have it finished for the August meeting. We will display them at the August meeting and vote on the Viewer’s Choice. Those of you who have the full piece of challenge fabric are still welcome to participate in the official MQG Challenge.
Canada 150 Challenge- Guild members will make a mini quilt in the specified colours of fabrics and these quilts will be displayed around London in 2017. More info to come.
The London MQG will have an information booth at the Quilt X show in September and at the London Friendship Quilt Show in October.
The Open Thread Bar workshop is half sold out- $65 for members and $75 for non-members. This includes lunch and kit fees.
