Ugly FQ Swap!

June is ugly fat quarter month in Dallas. The challenge for July is to give an ugly fat quarter an extreme makeover. To make the challenge a bit more interesting, we're asking everyone to bring their ugliest fat quarters to the June meeting to swap. You will get to take home someone else's ugly fat quarter and bring it back as something beautiful for the July meeting.

There will be a special prize for the quilter with the ugliest fat quarter!

(If you're dying to get your hands on some of the possum fabric shown above, it is called Backyard Bandits Oppossum by Fabriquilt)

DMQG is Moving to Meetup

After almost a year on Big Tent, we have come to the conclusion that it is not meeting our needs. This is based on our own problems maintaining the site and feedback from Guild members. Over the next few weeks, we will be moving to It will provide a lot of the functionality we currently have with easier-to-use features. You will be able to link your Flickr photos, Facebook page, and Twitter feed to your profile. RSVPing for events will be simpler and require fewer clicks. We will retain the ability to maintain Bee groups, forum discussions, and share event photos and DMQG files.

We expect to complete the move by June 30. If you receive a notice from Big Tent to renew your membership, please ignore it. We will be sending all current members an invoice via PayPal and an invitation to join our Meetup group. If you joined DMQG within the last 90 days, you will receive a pro-rated invoice for the 2011/12 year.

If you have questions, please email We thank you for your patience and look forward to seeing you on Meetup!
