Our meeting was as fun as ever and not much business was discussed. The main announcement was that Joe Cunningham is to be the juror for the Modern Inspired Amish show coming up in October with the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles. There will be an online submission form and all quilts will be juried in person. He believes in jurying for the artistic merit of the quilts, rather than the technical construction. So- if you are new to quilting and nervous of your skills, there is no reason not to enter! Please refer to this post for more information on the Amish show!
We also discussed about creating a compilation of mini quilts to be submitted as one art piece. The mini quilts need to be 10 – 12 inches in size and be Amish inspired. We will hang all the mini quilts together to represent one quilt from our guild. Deadline for the mini quilts is for the August meeting.
In other news….
Claire did a demonstration at the EBHQ June meet-up. (Again, I’m so sorry to be late posting this for the meeting was last night!!) However, several of our members participate with the EBHQ meet-ups, so I encourage you to check them out!
Stacey is doing two workshops at the end of the month with EBHQ. You can learn techniques from her Improv Confetti quilt and the other on her Improv Split Log Cabin quilts. They are spectacular projects, please check here for more information and to sign up!
