April Meeting Recap

Happy Spring!

At our April meeting, Kate did a demonstration of her scrappy strip piecing technique. You can view a tutorial of Kate's technique on her blog.

Our BOM from April was Empire BOM's Pick up Sticks block. This was such a fun block to make, and we had a great turnout. We followed the tutorial, but made our blocks 12" by 12", instead of 6" by 6" (finished).

Our members also showed off some great show and tell items:

We also got to see some finished charity quilts for Project Linus. You are all welcome to bring in any quilts and fabric to be donated to Project Linus. We also have monthly Round Robins--everyone is welcome to bring in any "starter" quilts, or add onto any of our round robins each month.

We’ve started a new Facebook group! Our Facebook page will still be our group’s main landing page. You can see our Block of the Month instructions, meeting information, and our details from the main page.

The group is designed to allow all members to post and share easily (anyone who joins on Facebook can post links, pictures and comments). Please share any of your modern quilting projects and ideas in our Facebook group.

Stay tuned for more updates from The South Florida Modern Quilters!

Happy Quilting,
