June guild meeting will feature Jacquie Gering!

Jacquie Gering of Tallgrass Prairie Studio is an iconic figure in the modern quilting world and a much missed member of the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild. Though we lost her to Chicago last year, we are welcoming her back with open arms this Thursday, June 14th, as she travels back to visit us and speak at the guild!


Jacquie will talk about her recently published book, Quilting Modern, discuss the book journey from idea to publication and show the quilts from the book to demonstrate the philosophy behind the book. Jacquie will also show a few new pieces and talk about "beyond the book" and what comes next in her work.

Visiting with Weeks Ringle

As Spring Quilt Market closed down in Kansas City, the excitement remained high for the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild, as well as a few quilters who had the good fortune to stay an extra day, or miss a flight or two. Weeks Ringle stayed an extra day also, just to speak to us and show us some of her fabulous quilts! So, on May 21, a horde of quilters gathered to listen to Weeks.

Her mini quilts were just gorgeous.

At the end, Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild members showed quilts that had been made from a pattern by Weeks and Bill. Weeks loved it and took photos to show Bill.

Having Weeks visit and speak to the guild was fun, inspirational and educational. We loved having her!
