The two are unrelated.
Many Amish Quilts proceeded modern art?
There is an Amish Made Modern challenge?

RECAP

Here’s what I missed, but was shared by the very helpful Andrea:

  •  AJ gave a synopsis of QuiltCon and BQE. (I believe this is where the razor blades came in.)

  • April’s meeting will be the 27th and combined with our sew day. (It’s true.)

  • Community service gave a report: Menorah House loved the 49 quilts that we gave them. Susan and Chris showed the new pattern for this year (again!—see this post for more).

  • Isabella discusses the upcoming workshop with R.G. May 4-5. Spots are still open. Sign up on the website. UPDATE: Rectangles has only one spot left.

  • June 1- Kate is doing a bag-making workshop. Save the date!

  • August: Teeny Tiny Piecing with Nicole. (Save this one, too!)

  • Patti announced April we will start the new QAL. It will have a pattern, including improv piecing, curves, paper piecing and more! Will last 5-6 months. (This never came up in the preview meeting! Weird.)

  • Catherine presented the March BOM due in April. (The title alone gets two snaps up!)

  • Maureen had Gold Coast Guild quilt tickets for sale (was it lovely?)

  • Debbie K gave a presentation on Amish Quilts Turned Modern. (I reeeealllly wanted to see this. But, will search the interwebs.)

  • Show and tell (I understand it was a robust offering of quilts! Yay guild mates!)
