I went to a quilting guild meeting

I went to my first quilting guild meeting.
I left with 10 fat quarters and a pattern.

It was the Milan (not MilanD…what was up with the D at the end?) Quiltbuilders Guild meeting.

What’s your quilting voice?

Hi Jo,

I’ve been looking at a lot of quilting books and find that I’m drawn to specific designs. I’m mostly interested in areas of detail and large spaces. It reminds me of the artwork I created in college.  Or I like the unexpected color juxtaposition.

I shared two patterns I bought at QuiltBeginnings.

Modern Pickle Relish by Modern Quilt Relish Described on the website as “Modern Pickle Relish reflects a contemporary valued mosaic of squares and rectangles. The gridded recipe allows the sophisticated design to be executed simply.  Crib, Throw and Queen sizes included.”

Feng Shui by Blue Underground Studios Not described on their website but the link takes you to the image.

Framed Rectangles by Joanne Hubbard….I can’t find link to the pattern…**sigh** 😉  This is my next quilt out of batiks.  Pictures to follow.

I review Modern Blocks and Natural Patchwork

Hi Jo,

I review Natural Patchwork  by Suzuko Koseki and Modern Blocks compiled by Susanne Woods

I really enjoy Modern Blocks and just might need to add it to my holiday wishlist.

I didn’t find the projects in Natural Patchwork to my liking, except the Courthouse Steps Quilt. It strikes my fancy.

I’ll bring the books with me the next time I see you.

3 rolls, 8 fat quarters and 3 patterns

It all starts somewhere.
Mine started here.
I acquired the rolls of fabric, 8 fat quarters and three patterns from QuiltTrends. I like the shop. The range of fabric was nicely displayed and the staff were pleasant. I will go back.









I decided I need to keep track of my quilting patterns and books before it gets too out of hand. How do you keep track of your patterns and books?
