March 10 Meeting

The Central Florida Modern Quilt Guild met Monday, March 10 at North Lake Presbyterian Church in Lady Lake, Florida. 

Quilt Story
In a new segment to each meeting, Carly shared her personal quilt story, telling how she began quilting three years ago. She share her first quilt, made for her grandmother using fabrics of special significance to family members.

Our chapter leader, Karen, introduced our new activity of selling $1 chances to win a pass-along basket of modern quilting goodies that will be refreshed each month by the recipient. Monies raised will be used to purchase supplies to make a thank-you quilt for North Lake Presbyterian Church.

The evening's focus was on WIPs or UFOs, as individuals chose to share their ongoing/unfinished modern projects.
