Modern Quilt Relish and a pincushion swap

Our November 8 guild meeting will feature the Modern Quilt Relish ladies, Jill and Marny! If you aren't familiar with them, check out their website. You'll see their new modern quilting book, Picnic, as well as the patterns they sell in their shop. Jill and Marny will be speaking about design principles they use in modern quilts. They will also have patterns available for purchase.


Also happening at the November meeting: The Pincushion Swap! We are swapping with several other modern guilds in the nation. Because it's such a coordinated swap, we cannot accept late items. Please come prepared with your completed pincushion if you want to participate. The swap committee will have tags ready for you to fill out and pin to your item.

Including KCMQG, these guilds are participating in the swap: Austin, Bay Area, Boston, Indianapolis, North Virginia, Vancouver and Wichita. In December, you'll have a pincushion made by someone in these guilds!

Swap Rules:
  • Nothing can be breakable
  • Your pincushion should be made in a modern aesthetic
Look here and here for pincushion inspiration and tutorials.

We'll see you in November!
