Eleven of our members met at the Belleview Public Library for our monthly Sew-In. It's such a great way to get to know fellow modern quilt makers, and see what everyone is working on.
Members of the QuiltCon Charity Quilt Challenge were in attendance, and had their own brief meeting to discuss the 2019 quilt project. Fabrics seen here are in the color palette as determined by the MQG. For more information about the challenge, go here.
All Central Florida MQG members will be invited to participate.
Susan showed the progress she's making on the quilt she began in Sherry Lynn Wood's improv workshop, when Sherry Lynn visited our chapter in October 2015.
Debbie is working on triangles she's making as she participates in Rebecca Bryan's online series, "Design Improv With Triangles."
President Karen is foundation paper-piecing "Year of Scrappy Triangles," as offered by Leila Gardenia on her blog.
Peggy is making bed runners for her parents.
Karen T., who adores Kaffe Fasset fabrics, is foundation paper-piecing Pineapple Blocks.
Cindy is piecing.
Vice President Bette is binding.
QuiltCon Charity Quilt Challenge Chair Jane is piecing.
Dee is making lots of Bowl Buddies. Here's the link to the free tutorial.
Beth is using leftover solids from another project to also make foundation paper-pieced blocks from Leila's "Year of Scrappy Triangles."
Though Beth is a long-time quilter, we all found it a little bit refreshing to learn that veteran quilt makers also make mistakes... like this one where Beth machine-sewed her plastic ruler to her foundation paper! Thanks for being a good sport, Beth!
Program Chair, and Media Coordinator Linda is piecing triangle blocks to complete the Bernina Zen Chic Quiltalong that began last August and concludes this August.
You can see that our members enjoy getting together, and that making modern is what we like to do. We hope more members will join us at future Saturday Sew-Ins. Save the date for the next Saturday Sew-In on August 11!
