On Wednesdays we feature works in progress by guild members. Enjoy!
As a Pacific Northwest Modern Quilt Guild, we were invited to submit quilts for the exhibit titled Modern Metallic for the Quilt! Knit! Stitch! quilt show in Portland, OR in August. One of the wonderful members of Portland Modern Quilt Guild organized sponsors for our challenge, and we were all thrilled to see that Robert Kaufman was providing challenge participants with fat quarters of their new metallics. Since everyone in COMQG loves Quilter's Linen, it didn't take us long to decide we would choose Quilter's Linen Metallic.
I was positively giddy to receive the fabric, and immediately got to cutting and preparing bundles to distribute to the 10 challenge participants from our guild. Even though the overall challenge didn't require using this fabric for the challenge, we decided as a guild to use the fabric in some way in our quilt that fits the theme of Modern Metallic. Stay tuned to this space for updates as we work on our challenges.
Submissions for the show are due May 2nd, and we will all be bringing our finished quilts to the COMQG meeting at Quiltworks for show and tell on May 6th.
