Happy March! It’s the month of shamrocks, leprechauns, St. Urho, daylight savings time and the Spring equinox. So while at times March weather can be challenging, it just may be the perfect quilty month……if it’s Springy warm we win! If it snows and blows, we sew and win! How can you not love March!?!
Sooooo….let’s March right into our agenda for our next meeting at Karen McTavish’s quilting studio!
LSMQG web page: Deb will be revealing our new and improved LSMQG web page…you don’t want to miss this!
Simple Simon Quilt a Long: This month’s emphasis is bold prints. We’ll listen to a portion of a webinar that introduces the Modern Quilt continuum and discusses fabric choices. Heidi and Robin will share their favorite fabric designers. If you have a Modern Traditional block, pillow, pattern, quilt which you were inspired to create from last month’s presentation/focus, bring it to share and inspire!
Bold Print 5” fabric square lotto: We want to have some fun with this month’s Modern focus. Bring one, five inch square of bold, modern fabric. Label the back of your square with something that has your name on it (a piece of tape, a lightly stitched label, etc….) After the presentation on bold prints, the five inch squares will be put in a basket and one drawn out. If the drawn square has your name on it, you will win all the five inch squares in the basket! Please….Please…..Please……bold, modern prints only!
Barn Quilt Painting Day: There is still time to sign up. Cost is $25.00 which includes materials. For those of you who have signed up and not yet paid, please bring cash or check to the March meeting.
Guild Updates: We have quite a few updates to share
Show and Tell: Our pot ‘o gold at the end of our quilty rainbow!
Meeting Day: Thursday, March 9th, 2017
Meeting Time: 6:00-8:00
Location: Karen McTavish’s Quilting Studio, 1831 E 8th Street
February is the month of love. What's not to love of these amazing works that the LSMQG members have been busy stitching up?!
It's here! A box full of Riley Blake fabric has been delivered! What a great bundle! Emails were sent out to each member who signed up with the Modern Quilt Guild in time to receive a bundle of fabric.
Fabric will be handed out at the Feb 9th guild meeting.
All details for the Challenge can be found on the Community page of the MQG site. Deadline for submitting your quilted item is April 30.
At our May meeting we will also have an opportunity to show off what you've made - have fun creating!
