I was lucky enough to attend Mid-Atlantic MOD in late April with friends from both the Philly and Baltimore MQGs. I had a wonderful time this year and am already looking forward to next year. Here is a brief, but photo heavy recap.
I participated in the Secret Sewist Swap and snuck around for three days dropping off packages for my partner. She was a huge Alice & Wonderland fan so my final gift was a mini from a paper pieced pattern that I drafted myself.
I filled her days with a graphic novel, pencils, a fun notepad, and a bunch of other little things. Her other handmade gifts were a lanyard and key fob made out of Essex Linen and some Allison Glass. I included a set of scissors because she mentions on IG that she is a scissor loser.
My secret sewist was a Philly MQG member who sat behind me all weekend!
From a ring holder to a bottle of wine (with a awesome insulated tote bag, konas, chai, and a card holder in-between), she knows me well!
I also participated in a mini quilt swap. Here is mine:
We all got together one evening and played a super drawn out, but fun game that involved swapping, stealing, and other debauchery. It was so much fun to see the minis that others made and to watch the ones that people fought over.
After loosing it twice and stealing it back, I ended up with Andrew’s lovely green and low volume mini that I love.
All and all it was a lovely weekend getting to know Philly MQG friends better than I had before, relaxing, sewing, learning, and mostly chatting.
Here are a few more photos from my IG feed.
