Sunday Stash

For this week's Sunday Stash, I thought I would share our Guild fabric.  The Melbourne Modern Quilt Guild has been in existence for four years now but last year we moved to an incorporated structure, reflecting the size and nature of the guild.  The formal membership applications opened in December 2013.  One of the things that we wanted to do as part of this change was commission a logo that was very 'Melbourne', but not a local icon that is typically associated with our city, such as the Melbourne Cricket Ground or the Arts Centre Spire.  The very talented Shannon Lamden (also know as Auntie Cookie) came up with a very fabulous and modern design based on the much maligned Melbourne sculpture Vault (more commonly known as the Yellow Peril).  We decided that we would have this made up into a fabric that would form part of our members' welcome pack, together with some coordinating Kona solids.  These things take a bit of time to organise and I finally got my pack two weeks ago.  I love it.  Already some of our clever members have put this to good use, so the pressure is on.


  1. Wow what a clever and crafty way to Welcome new members!

    1. Thank you! We are really happy with the way that the design and there has been lots of positive feedback from members.

  2. What a cool idea! Makes me wish I lived in Melbourne so I could join your guild! ;) I've visited once before--beautiful city! You are a lucky woman.

  3. We thought it was a fun idea as well. And you should see some of the fabulous creations our members have made from the fabric!

  4. that is such a good idea, so unique!
