Workshop in Progress - June 9


The Calgary Modern Quilt Guild finally got it's act together and met last week! It was a small group of us, but we had loads of fun.  Show and tell, treats to eat, and already a comfort level in our conversations like we were old gossipy friends. We are already looking forward to the next meeting in July.

One of the best things is that Bernadette, the owner of Traditional Pastimes has volunteered her store for our meetings. How awesome is that? So we are going to have the chance for sew days of sorts as well. I, of course, suggested that our sew days take the form of workshop where we use each other for advice, input, and creative mind think. This will be great to do in person. And with a good group so far, including Val, Jen, and our host that night, Jessy, I am really looking forward to that creativity in one room!

For me the workshop is a head down, don't look up kind of place. I am now making my way through a few orders for commission quilts. With school coming to an end soon it also looks like many others are pretty busy.

Okay, I cannot not comment, however, on Elle's quilt.  She is planning circles.  Yeah, I know my circles!

Love that new header Cheryl! You are certainly keeping busy in your neck of the woods. Someday I aspire to be a quilter like you. I need to come and be your apprentice for a summer ;)

Brilliant, Cheryl. I'd forgotten about your tutorial but it'll work perfectly.

I'm chuckling at the irony that the Calgary modern quilt guild meets at Traditional Pastimes. ;)
