1st off I'd like to announce that Kelly was the fat quarter giveaway winner this month. Kelly landed the FQ loot with her comment regarding resolutions, "I do not make resolutions. I like to set goals. My goal this year is to live in the moment, being mindful of all the joy and beauty around!" Rock on Kelly. I hope you love your new fat quarters.
Modern Fabric Group Therapy kicked off year 2 this month. I am so impressed by the talent these ladies bring to each and every meeting. Our swap this month was Mug Rugs ~ a fast, easy, and functional project. Here are a few photos of the cool mug rugs the ladies swapped:
Lisa Alley was our guest speaker. She is a friend, a fabric rep for Troy Corp, as well as an avid quilter and quilt pattern designer. Wow! Lisa shared so many gorgeous fabric collections with the group and even brought some of her patterns to giveaway. Thanks Lisa!
Jenny Ryan was our delightful Spotlight. She brought her 1st sewing projects to share, as well as some things she is currently working on. Check ouy Jenny's awesome Sandlewood Jacket she made a few years ago. The pattern in the fabric is lined up perfectly. Incredible. Looking good Jenny.
Show & Tell at MF Group Therapy is always so inspiring and seems to get better every month... not sure how that's possible. Carrie shares a Block of the Month project she made. Really nice. Tomoe shares her impeccably handmade dolls
Lisa shares a quilt top she whipped together in a weekend - love it.There were many other wonderful things shared with the group, but no photos to prove it. Boo! We started on our 2014 Block of the Month project. Actually, I'm not entirely sure anyone has started it yet... we'll have to see if anyone brings their first 3 blocks to our next meeting on February 12th. Here is a photo of one of the blocks I made for the scrappy version I am excited to make ~ featuring FreeSpirits True Colors and Designer Solids.
I will be talking to the Triad Modern Quilt Guild tomorrow about the benefits of Group Therapy and I will be bringing a few goodies to share. The meeting starts at 6:30. Hope to see you there
I hope 2014 is off to a great start for you. Leave me a comment and let me know what you're working on ~ I'd love to hear all about it.
