South Florida Mod

StitchCraft hosted the third meeting of the South Florida Modern Quilt Guild.  Well attended by enthusiastic quilters with modern interests.  Led by the talented Nicole, a NYC transplant, the interpretation of modern was varied but equally talented.
The group discussed upcoming area quilt shows and projects. A sewing day to create quilts for Project Linus will be at the Boca Library next month and a collaborative row quilt is underway.

Show and tell is a popular part of any guild, where we all get to see the many projects our contemporaries have created.

Shelly tool the Wavelet class with Jane Hardy Miller last month at StitchCraft.  Her color choice is wonderful, don't you think?
We see Sue peaking out from behind her wonderful quilt that showcases one of her favorite fabric lines - Kaffe Fassett's shot cottons.
Nicole is finishing up a baby quilt with a citrus theme.  We think Florida is really starting to rub off on her already!
Stunning quilt set off by the white sashing and border!

The South Florida Modern quilt guild did a Mug Rug Swap.  Smaller than a place mat, bigger than a coaster - thing coffee and a muffin.  Mini quilts for us to keep on our desks and dressers and enjoy each and every day.   Have scraps or a bit of some great fabric left over?  Make a mug rug!
