I thoroughly enjoyed myself last week with the Valley Modern Quilt Guild. One week ago (how can a week go by so fast?!), I was at their monthly meeting and had a combination lecture and trunk show about Transparency Fabric Selection Tips and Tricks.
My favorite part of the lecture is that it is already out of date. Ha! One of my tips I share is how to navigate shopping for fabric online, and one of my favorite online stores, Hawthorne Threads (apparently now Hawthorne Supply Co.), has had a website update between Monday and when I checked again on Friday. Currently their select by color option is not available on their new site, but they are definitely working to get it up and running again. It just goes to show how quickly things can change with technology!
On Saturday I had an all day Triangle Transparency workshop with the guild, and above are some of the striking combinations and versions that the members created. I was very impressed that four people were able to get to completed quilt tops, and I loved the bold exploration of prints. The quilt in the center of the collage was made by Anna from Artist Within Designs using Cherrywood fabrics. We all thought it looked like suede or leather; stunning!
I feel like I say this every time I have the opportunity to be around other quilters: quilters are my people. I really enjoyed my time with the Valley MQG and their amazing work is definitely crush worthy, so I’m linking up with Main Crush Monday with Beth from Cooking Up Quilts.
