Modern Quilt Guild

Yesterday I attended the first meeting of the Knoxville chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild

It was so much fun!  We discussed quilting, favorite shops, did a show-and-tell of our projects, had a fabric swap, talked about philanthropy projects we could get involved in, and came up with some ideas for future swaps and bees.  It was so nice to get together with others who share my love of fabric and sewing and crafting!  I don't know anyone else who enjoys all these crafty pursuits like I do and so it's great to find others to share this hobby with!

We will be meeting every month, hopefully, and I already can't wait for next month's meeting.  I think we are all going to have so much fun.  If any of my Knox Mod girls are stopping by, a big HELLO to you, it was a great to meet you!

If you would like to join a Modern Quilt Guild chapter, check their site for a list of chapters that have been formed and find one in your area, or if one isn't there already, start one up yourself!  It's so worth it!

Speaking of modern quilting, I purchased this pattern this week:

I purchased the pattern from the Blue is Bleu Etsy shop.  It arrived super fast! Audrie, the proprietor of Blue is Bleu, has a great blog, too, check it out!

The pattern looks a little intimidating, but I really want to try it.  It requires 31 or 36 different fat quarters. I think between my Flea Market Fancy fat quarters, and a fat quarter set of Katie Jump Rope that I purchased recently, I'll have enough. I think that will make an awesome quilt! But I'm so indecisive, I'll have to think about it some more before I jump in!

Also, I wanted to mention, I am approaching my 50th post, only a couple more to go...make sure you come by, because I am going to have a giveaway to mark the occassion!

Sorry we didn't get to come! We were so looking forward to meeting everyone and hopefully we can make it next month. It was very far to drive for us and one of us was pretty sick---no use spreading the icky.
