Our April 14 Outing

Simply Sew Boutique quilt shop, at 13685 S Highway 441 in Summerfield, Florida, hosted the April 14 meeting of the Central Florida MQG. We had a great turnout with 31 people in attendance! Whether they came to learn about using an Accuquilt, or a Piping Hot Binding tool... or maybe for the nice 15 percent discount,  it was nice to see so many quilters interested in modern quilting.

Our leader, Karen, welcomed nine first time visitors followed by Show and Tell.

Standing, or sitting-on-the-floor room only!

First-time visitor Debbie shared two quilts made while she has been a member of the Chicago MQG.

Cindy's quilt
Linda T.'s quilt
Linda T.'s fractured quilt top
Diane's pillow top made with Anna Maria Horner prints
And, another of Diane's creations
The short meeting concluded with demonstrations of an Accuquilt, and Piping Hot Binding tool by shop owner Kathy Creach. Thank you for hosting us, Kathy and Kelsey! Simply Sew Boutique

The May 12 meeting finds us back at North Lake Presbyterian Church at 6:30 pm. In Karen's absence, Denise will lead our meeting. Beth S. will provide information about the importance of, and documenting quilts; and we'll look at interesting quilt backs and quilt labels. Bring yours to share - or pictures of them - along with your modern quilt(s) for show and tell.
