Today was the first meeting of the Louisville Modern Quilt Guild – woo hoo!
I had no idea how many people to expect, but was very happy to meet 10 women of all ages interesting in modern quilting. I brought my quilt for baby Audrey, and one of the women brought several tops she’d made, one had the Tula Pink Saltwater fabric I’m considering using for my next project. It looked gorgeous and really inspired me to get cutting and sewing.
We’ve already set our next meeting, Saturday, June 1, at Among Friends Quilt Shop, from 2-5 p.m. If you’re in the area and would like to join us, we’d love to have you. It will be a sew-in, so bring your machine and whatever supplies you’ll need for the afternoon’s project.
To get to know each other better, everyone should bring a modern block, work in progress or finished quilt that’s indicative of their style — we’ll briefly explain to the group what inspired us — and a project to work on.
I can’t tell you how excited I am that there was a good turnout for the first meeting, and can’t wait till our next meeting to see what everyone brings.
