Chelsea was our first door prize winner, Amy Barrick and Mary Ellen Wical were the other winners.
The Modern Quilt Guild recently revised the definition of Modern Quilting. As quilting evolves so does what is considered modern. To read about it visit the Modern Quilt Guild website.
We shared what aspects of Modern Quilting we will be using in our challenge quilts.
Mary Ellen finished a bunch of quilts recently. The Bonnie Hunter Mystery- Chilhowie.
Mary Ellen did a great job informing us on batting. The different kinds, brands, and material. She shared tips about them as well as showing samples. She prefers the Quilters Dream line of battings. The Dream Wool is her personal favorite. Another favorite is Hobbes 80/20 blend.
