Set it Free Challenge: Feb. 2019 Meeting

Feb Mtg Notice.png

Set that unused or unwanted fabric free at the February meeting of the Chattanooga Modern Quilt Guild!

In January, we were inspired to organize our quilting and sewing spaces. Now, we encourage you to examine your fabric stash and select one piece (fat quarter or larger) to bring to the February meeting for a creative swap.

It could be a fabric that you loved long ago or still love but just haven't had the courage to cut up.

Bring a fabric to set free!

Fabrics will be exchanged white-elephant style, and each existing or new member who attends the meeting will leave with someone else’s fabric.

The challenge is to use that fabric to create a modern quilt of any size in four months!

Finished quilts will be unveiled during a festive potluck party at our June 2019 meeting. We'll share progress photos using the hashtag #setitfreechallenge.

This month’s meeting starts at 10 a.m. on Saturday, February 9, at Christ United Methodist Church.

Quilts wanted for Stitches in Time exhibit

The annual Stitches in Time Quilt Show show will be at the Museum Center at 5ive Points in Cleveland, TN, from Jan. 31 to Feb. 28, 2019. Two of our large, group quilts will be displayed at the museum February 19-28, as part of a special exhibition outside the juried show. We also have room for a few more small quilts made by members. Bring yours for consideration to this meeting. Karen will be taking the quilts there February 16th and picking them up March 1st.

Bring items for our new “Free Table”

Members are also invited to bring any unwanted books, rulers, notions, etc. to swap on our new “Free Table.” Put your items on the table for others to take and pick up anything you’d like to take home. We only ask that you take any of your items that are not claimed by someone else.

Bring your show and tell quilts

C’mon…brag a little! We’ll have plenty of time for Show and Tell this month, so bring your latest projects, WIPs, or a favorite quilt that inspires you.

Guests and new members welcome
