The Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild is just about 1 year old (we should have a party!) and this year, we are really focused on reaching out to members to get more involvement. We have quite a large group in the online community, but our meetings are still pretty small.
Since everyone LOVEs new projects...there is another swap/challenge taking place this month!! I will not be able to make the February 17th meeting, but the best part of this swap is that Elise is accepting the fabric in the mail. The information (including Elise's mailing address) has been posted on our BigTent forum. If you aren't a member yet, the basic directions are also on our Flickr group page.
And it sounds like a really great challenge. Everyone brings at least 10 strips (2 patterns - 5 strips of each)of black, white or gray patterned fabric. Then (if you choose to follow rules), you add one solid fabric and MAKE SOMETHING!! I participated in a polka-dot challenge last summer and it was amazing how different everyone's projects turned out even though we all used the same fabrics.
This was my project - placemats.
So - check out the upcoming challenge and maybe a meeting. We would love to see you there!
Also - Badlands Quilts, Sewtropolis and MIniMushrooms will be joining in the fun too!
