The January Meeting

Hello Modern Quilt Gals,

What a fun Saturday morning!  We had the knitting corner of Sew Bee It packed!  

We welcomed some new folks, said hello to old friends and welcomed old friends new to the group.  As Brenda would say, it is a wonderful quilting family!

 A sample of the Logo Blocks

We had an incredible response to Pam's Logo Challenge--18 logo blocks were submitted and no two were the same.  Pam will be sharing the logo blocks on the blog in the weeks to come.

The guild received a package of Michael Miller's Madrona Road fabrics and Janet come up with a block challenge for February--using the Log Cabin Makeover chapter from "Quilting Modern", come up with your own log cabin block.  For more details, see her blog already posted on the webpage.  Blocks will be due at the February meeting. Janet--thanks for a great challenge and getting the fabric packets ready!

Sandi introduced our inspiration book for 2013--"Quilting Modern" by Jacquie Gering and Katie Pedersen.  She reviewed the first four chapters and pointed out highlights for the group.  Then Sharon shared her new favorite marking pen that disappears when heat is applied.  If I had been taking better notes, I would have all the details...I will have to share them later.  And I showed a quick demonstration of how creative you can get using your straight stitch/walking foot to make a number of curved quilting patterns.

Then for the best part--Show & Tell--

Janet's Fibonacci Quilt--with special piecing for the extra large block.

Sandi's Janus Quilt

Debra's "Boxed" Quilt 

Katherine's Quilt  made for a special friend

Denise's Quilt

And our own quilting rock star--Jean's quilt--

See you all in February!!
