It may have been a grey, dreary cold day in Duluth but members of the Lake Superior Modern Quilt Guild grabbed their brightest quilts, bundled up, and gathered for a walkabout around Duluth's iconic Aerial Lift Bridge!
Check out the Duluth News Tribune article on the colorful walkabout:

Wow! Where has January gone! Hope you all made good use of the cold weather to do some hot sewing and quilting!
I don’t know about you, but not having a January meeting really left an inspiration gap in my month. Here is what we’ll be doing in the February meeting on Thursday, February 8th.
Scrap and Stash Management: Alane will be sharing with us her tips as well as tips gleaned from the web on how to organize and store your scraps and stash.
2018 Quilt a Long: Alane has designed a yearlong quilt-a-long for us that will help build your piecing skills. The full pattern and first block of the series will be revealed in the February meeting.
Project Pouch: Wondering what ‘Project Pouch’ is all about? You should have an email in your inbox that explains our yearlong service project. If you missed the email, the information is also posted on our blog. You can see that here: https://www.lakesuperiormqg.com/home/project-pouch We’ll discuss it more in our meeting and answer any questions you may have.
Quilter of the Month: Our quilter of the month for January is Heidi. We’ll see some of her quilty goodness in our February meeting. We’ll also have a sign up available so you can sign up for a month to be featured!
Guild News: We met as a leadership team in early January. We'd like to share with you some plans for 2018.
Show and Tell: In our survey many of you mentioned this is your favorite part of the meeting! We want to see what you have been working on! Whether it is a work in progress or a completed project we want to see it! We love being inspired by everyone’s talents!
Can’t wait to see everyone on Thursday, February 8th at Karen McTavish’s Quilt Shop, 1831 East 8th Street.
