Calling all MQG members (guilds and individuals). QUILTCON 2018 swap registration is now open. Closes October 25th. This time swap mates are not secret; so, a great way to really get to know another modern quilter. #themqg#quiltcon2018 , #mqgswap
Woo hoo. Happy Mail for me. Could think of more creative way to show I received #bluerkblocks package to finish top, and quilt. Will have to wow you all with in progress photos. #bluerkblocks @craftycop # happymail
Here's my other entry in the Miniature (not so small 24 x24) category.
My take on Modern Traditionalism titled Churn Baby Churn. Using Victoria Findlay Wolfe's delicious Meadow Storm fabric purchased at her booth at MQX in Manchester, NH in April. VFW sells it in her online shop. Background fabric is Moda grunge from @theboltquiltshop.
My QuiltFest 2017 Challenge entry. Judges Recognition ribbon. Titled: Bookmark - Save the Page. Not my most creative title, but when I completed the quiltshow entry form way back in July....I had just returned from CT with the fabric and was still creating the design in my mind.
Book fabric purchased at the Bolt Quilt Shop in Monroe, CT @theboltquiltshop. Thank you Lady Jane.
Challenge fabric package had the black background sewing notions and the two fabrics used in the dresden tassle. Other rules were to include a star; text of any kind; and one element must extend off the quilt.
Techniques used were fussy cutting, EPP, FPP, free hand applique, embroidery, straight line echo quilting and free motion quilting and a curved bottom. Hardest part was finding just the right selvages for the book spines.

All set for #bluerkblocks events this weekend.

Sat, 8-19 at the Viking Gallery at the Town Center between 10 and 4 pm and again on Sunday, 8-20 between 10 and 7 pm. What better way to test drive a fabulous Viking machine than sewing up a Bluerkblock. All supplies will be available.
Working on BluerBlocks for craftycop. Will be launching a few sew-ins this month with the JAXMQG and Coastal Quilters of Northeast Florida guilds.
The goal is 168 completed blocks and then some binding.
