Thursday night was the fourth meeting of the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild. I sure do love this group!
Back in February, we issued a challenge- Project Plume. Charm packs of Tula Pink’s Plume fabric were given out (Thank you Moda and Tula!) with the following rules:
– use only the charm pack and one additional half-yard of fabric for the top
– any fabric you wanted for the additional half yard, backing and binding
– bring it back in April for a big show and tell!
Everyone was so secretive up until the big reveal! A few members posted sneak peeks on blogs, but mostly it was all a big surprise to see what everyone did.
I cannot tell you how NEAT this was! Every one of them was fantastic- and so different! One person’s quilt was her first quilt EVER. Yeah, Carrie! Check them out:
Does Lauren’s on the bottom left look like different fabric? That would be because she bleached it. What a clever one, that girl.
My mom’s is the one in the bottom photo, second one on the top row. I heart her.
Mine is the mini me version of Tula’s market quilt. (top photo, fourth quilt on the top row) When we got the charm packs, I’d just won the infamous quilt kit from my previous post. I knew it would be a bit before I could start that one, so I decided to use the pattern and scale it WAAAAAAY down for my Project Plume quilt. I am super irritated at myself for not getting a photo of the back of the quilt top- you should have seen the seams pressed open!
I’d show you a photo of mine, but I don’t have one and Miss Tula has possession of the quilt right now. I’ll have to grovel and beg her to send me some sort of photo of it.
I am looking forward to many more terrific meetings with the KC MQG. We’ve had a wonderful- not to mention hilarious- group of people. Our first meeting in January had 34 people, then for the last three months, we’ve had SEVENTY people at each meeting! Yahoo!! We’ve got some great stuff planned for the guild, so stay tuned!
