Check It Out!

Hi SMQG!   Hope this warm day is finding you happy and crafty.  Maybe a bit warm to be sitting under a big quilt, but not to hot for a little Mug Rug!

This little cutie was constructed from my "Modern Improv Block" created at our April meeting.  Thanks to Corrie for showing us how to put our rulers and patterns away and let our creativity lead the way.  I freemotion quilted my block (batting, no back), added the "J" and then folded and sewed.  A little topstitching and a couple lines of additional quilting, and that was it!

On the sidebar ======>  you will see a list of upcoming events.  Look for more details about meetings and local events in future posts.   Also, the information about our next swap will be posted soon, in case you missed the meeting or (whoops!) misplaced your copy.

Wouldn't this blog be even more wonderful if there were more pictures of YOUR latest projects?  If you would like to email some my way, send them HERE.  Give a description, method, or story about your project.  (should it be "modern"?  sure!  does it have to be a quilt? nah.)

This is our SMQG blog.  Member content is welcome!  Encouraged!  Begged for!!! Have something you want to share?  An idea?  Need help or inspiration on a project?  Don't wait til next meeting - email it to Jen and it will magically appear on the blog.  We would love to see what you are working on, both here and on our Flickr page.  Read a great article? blog? quilting book?  How about a review and recommendation for the group!

Finally, keep watching the blog for ideas, more info about Modern Quilting, and *gasp!* maybe even a GIVEAWAY!!!

Next SMQG meeting February 4th

Well our February meeting is right around the corner.  Please join us on February 4th- 6 pm at Linderellas in Southern Pines for our monthly meeting.
This month our Bee blocks are due.  I hope all of my bee's have been very busy.  I know that I have.  I am sorry to say that I am unable to attend due to a conflict with work, but Candy will be there to help guide the meeting for us. 
Our next sew day is Thursday, February 17th from 5-8 pm.  I will be there for sure working on all of my many projects.  I hope to see everyone there. 
One last food for thought.  It is now time to make a decision on officers and dues.  The duties will be discussed at the February meeting.  Please come ready to give input and offer help.

January Meeting....we are taking a trip

Hi Everyone!  I hope this finds everyone enjoying the New Year.  During our December meeting we decided to hold our January meeting at the Fiber Arts show in Sanford.  The date for our excursion is Saturday, January 8th.  We will be meeting at Linderellas at 11:30 and then heading up to the show.  I would love to carpool with those that can, so just let me know if you are interested in that.  Also, feel free to meet us up there should you have alternate plans.  I look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday.
