Be sure to note the first place winner in Improvisation. The quilt is "Leftovers #7" by Debra Jalbert who not only attended our February meeting (she is a member of the Orlando MQG), but presented our chapter with her "Leftovers" workshop in July last year. Here's that blog post about it. We're so proud of Debra!
Along the same lines, though many of us weren't at QuiltCon, some of our Instagram friends were, and shared these photos of our QuiltCon Charity Quilt on display. All those quilts made by chapters and individuals were hung on the hallway walls, outside the convention hall. It looks like our quilt hung next to one from Texas!
Chapter members Karen E., Jane, Linda H., Linda T., and Frances (former member) made "Florida Waves."
When the quilt is returned to us, it will be donated as a spring auction/fundraiser for St. Jude Children's Hospital.
Along with working on our own projects at the Sew-In...

It turned out to be an opportunity for all of us to handle the different brands and talk about the qualities of each - Painter's Palette, Kaufman Kona, Moda Bella, and RJR. Quilters are always learning!
So, let's plan to meet!
Reminder: Our regular Central Florida MQG meeting is Monday, March 5. That's a date change due to a conflict with the church where we meet.
