October 2 GMQ meeting

Hi everyone,

Gainesville Modern Quilters meets this Wednesday, October 2, from 7:00 to 9:00 in the Crafty Gemini shop! We will be hand binding the Habitat for Humanity charity quilt as a group and we’ll have the patterns (and maybe the fabric) for the letter blocks for our QuiltCon Charity Quilt. Bring your finished quilts and WIP projects for show and tell–

We hope to see everyone on Wednesday!


GMQ meeting Wednesday August 7

Hi everyone,

Gainesville Modern Quilters will meet this week–Wednesday, August 7, 7:00-9:00 at the Crafty Gemini Shop. It’s the meeting you’ve all been waiting for! We will be swapping our low-volume plus blocks. As a reminder, the goal was to make 30 blocks for the swap plus 2 extra for the Habitat for Humanity quilt. If you didn’t make that many blocks, no worries, you can just swap for the number you made.

We’ll also pick a design for our QuiltCon Charity Quilt. The theme is text and the palette is black, gray and white.

And–show and tell! Hope to see you there!

New meeting date! July 10

The Gainesville Modern Quilters meeting will be postponed one week because of the holiday. We will meet next Wednesday, July 10, from 7:00 to 9:00 in the Crafty Gemini Shop! That means you get an extra week to work on your low-volume plus blocks! I know that I need it—I’ve stalled out at 18 but I’m inspired by Lora and Laura’s progress–check them out on Instagram (@loradouglas and @appalachiensis). We’ll be talking about ideas for the QuiltCon charity quilt challenge (https://www.quiltcon.com/charity-quilt-challenge-2020) the theme is text and the color palette is black, white and gray. We can’t wait to hear your ideas!

Hope everyone has a Happy Fourth!
