What a great fabric swap we had! The leftovers were donated to EBHQ for their charity quilts.
We had a little bit of money left over from Stitch Modern and it was agreed to use that money for the next Stitch Modern in 2015.
The charity quilts for WDDC continue to be assembled by individual members. Quilt backs are being organized. Our goal is to present them to WDDC in June. I think we’ll make it!
Quite a few people are excited to take part in the Amish inspired exhibit hosted by the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles. Submissions are open to members of the four bay area modern quilt guilds, that includes us!
1. Quilts must be inspired by the Amish- no specific time or geographic area. Some images will be provided by SJMQT if you want to be inspired by a specific quilt from their Ohio Amish exhibit that will be going at the same time, however you are not required to be inspired by this exhibit.
2. There is no minimum size for your quilt, but it must be no longer than 104 inches on any one side.
3. There is an entry fee, to be determined.
4. A juror will determine which quilts get to be exhibited. A curator will determine where the quilts get to be displayed.
5. A portion of the quilts to be shown must be for sale. Price will be split 50/50 between maker and museum. You determine the price of your quilt.
6. Quilts will need to be entered by October 1st.
If you don’t think you will have time to make a larger quilt, we hope you will join us in making a mini quilt! Just for our group, we want to submit a compilation of mini quilts to represent a much larger quilt. It must be 10-12 inches square, constructed like a quilt, and is due at the June meeting.
Patricia and 2 other artists will be exhibiting their work for the month of May at the Rockridge Library.
Did you know that our host, A Verb for Keeping Warm, also hosts the group called Seam Allowance that focuses on clothes making? They meet on the 2nd Sunday of each month. To check out the calendar for events and classes that the Verb offers, check it out here!
