scraps from my inbox

Hello all, Mary Ellen here.

All of these little bits were in my inbox this morning! what a day!

modern quilt example: I follow this blog each day and I think Victoria’s work fits my personal definition of modern quilting. Lots of white, modern fabrics with traditional blocks. What would you think about having her as a seminar teacher? Would there be enough interest? Hmm..? How many of our members have an interest in modern quilting? Or would like to explore it?

McCall’s Quilting University video portal: click here  and/or here.  Free tutorials on many topics

free e-book of pillow covering patterns– some modern, some not: click here.

new (somewhat) technique and book I will definitely be trying!: click here.

spent the morning with the little guys at the Explore and More museum in East Aurora. The place was swarming with little people. Had a great time, but boy am I pooped!

    I would love to have a modern quilt teacher at seminar. Modern quilting is an area that I’m just beginning to explore and I’m looking for inspiration

  2. Kit Willey says:

    Have been corresponding with Victoria quite a lot, she is delightful. Have permission to use one of her ideas for a baby quilt. Ideas are remindful of old string quilts back long ago at old Pinegrove where I learned new tricks.Kit Willey

    I am thrilled that Victoria won the Best of Show at Quiltcon – love that quilt! I follow her blog daily too and even met her briefly last year at Quilters take Manhattan (fundraiser for Quilt Alliance) that I won the tickets for – hooray for internet! :) I think she would be a great Seminar teacher – we should work on that! :) Also – how about a small group for some modern quilting challenges, small projects and inspirations?

    • Paula Foerder says:

      I like the idea of a small group to work on some modern quilting projects or challenges. It would help push me to try some new ideas. A while ago the someone at the Guild talked about Saturday get togethers. Maybe if there is interest in modern quilting we could try that?

    Thanks for all the links. As soon as I saw the Mini Mosiacs book on The Quilt Show I ordered it. Love the idea also. I’m sort of a fan of the modern quilting, but on the fence about it all. I do like the soft gray quilts I have seen with soft pastel solids and straight line quilting.
