1  modern quilt guilds starting all over the place! in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by antijamsect on: January 20, 2010 09:29:48 AM



Alissa of http://handmadebyalissa.com has been working on growing her LA modern quilt guild into a national movement of modern quilt guilds nationwide.  She has started a new site to help others start branches in their own city at http://themodernquiltguild.com/.

I decided I wanted to start an Indianapolis branch - personally, I'd love the opportunity to meet other modern quilters in the area and meet once or twice a month.   You can find more information at http://indymqg.ning.com/ .  I will be posting information on our first meeting soon, and would love to have anyone interested in the Indianapolis area join us. Beginners are welcome!

What is modern quilting?  According to The Modern Quilt Guild:
Quote
The concept of modern quilting is not meant to divide or segregate. It is meant to welcome new quilters, of all ages, to the world of quilting in a style that they can relate to. In many ways, modern quilting takes us back to the basics of the early quilters, when women of the day used the colors and styles of their time to express themselves creatively.

There are branches starting all over the country, so even if you are not in Indianapolis, check out the http://themodernquiltguild.com member guild links and find (or start) one in your area!

3  quilted advent calendar in Quilting: Completed Projects by antijamsect on: November 18, 2009 07:17:02 AM
I made this advent calendar using the tutorial that was on the sew mama sew blog by ohfransson.  It was fun, but it was challenging.  My first time doing real applique, and I decided to make this while I was packing up to move!  I blogged about it at http://www.janmade.com.  I didn't get a picture of the back, but I used the Funky Christmas deer fabric from the Michael Miller Funky Christmas collection

I made this quilt for a friend as a thank you for designing my Etsy logo.  All she asked for was pink and orange, this is what I came up with, using Heather Ross's mendocino line and some solids. It was my first time free motion quilting too!  I blogged about it at http://www.janmade.com.  Thanks for looking!
