Change the date for our March meeting!
Due to a huge event at North Lake Presbyterian Church the evening of our regular meeting (Who wants to park far away, walk the distance, AND be squeezed into a small room?!), we are moving up the meeting date by one week, to March 5. We'll still have the same great meeting, and program by Beth @blue_dragonfly5 We'll begin at 6:30 pm in the fellowship room. See you there! #centralfloridamqg #changeofplans
February 5 #showandtell Susan (L) @sesquilter and Debbie (R) @dbook1 showed "Line Dance," an 82" x 94" quilt made by Big Cypress Quilters, a chapter of Quilting Guild of The Villages. The quilt was longarm quilted by Debbie. Raffle tickets are being sold for this modern quilt that will be given in January 2019 at the guild's quilt show. Monies raised will support Camp E-Nini-Hassee, a Central Florida camp for troubled teenage girls. #wemakemodern #centralfloridamqg #qgotv #thevillages
The 2018 QuiltCon Charity quilt made by @sunrayatplay @blu24berry @gonequiltinginflorida @flourishingpalms and Frances, is now in Pasadena. "Florida Waves" was designed and made per @themqg "modern traditionalism" theme, using the prescribed color palette. #painterspalettesolids were donated by @pbstudiofabrics ; Pellon batting was donated by @pellonprojects rep Victoria Rondeau; and 50-weight Aurifil thread for piecing and quilting was donated by @aurifilthread "Florida Waves" was domestic machine quilted. Thank you @centralfloridamqg for covering shipping costs! The quilt was displayed at the January @quiltfest World Quilt Florida before being sent to #quiltconpasadena #centralfloridamqg #wemakemodern #showusyourmqg #quiltconcharityquilt2018 #domesticmachinequilting #homemachinequilting
It might seem like a few weeks ago that we met, and it was! Due to a schedule conflict with the church where we meet, our February meeting is one week earlier than usual. Don't miss us on Monday, February 5. Same time: 6:30 pm. Same place: North Lake Presbyterian Church. Program: "Inspiration for Modern Quilt Designs," by Beth @blue_dragonfly5 See you there! #centralfloridamqg
We're proud of our star member, Mary Shara (not on Instagram) who won $200 for Best Modern Quilt at World Quilt Florida Quiltfest in Orlando last weekend. Congratulations Mary!

Ya'll did us proud! #centralfloridamqg #centralfloridamqgatWQF #showusyourmqg #quiltshowwinner #worldquiltflorida #wqf
Two of our members were in the local news with quilts juried into World Quilt Florida. Kudos to our modernistas: Beth @blue_dragonfly5 and Linda @flourishingpalms World Quilt Florida is Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando. Don't miss our @centralfloridamqg exhibit: What Makes a Quilt Modern? with 24 quilts shared by 12 of our members. Look for modern quilt displays from @orlandomqg and @southfloridamodern too! Good stuff! Newspaper photo background quilt is SuperNova, a pattern by @lee.a.heinrich #showusyourmqg #centralfloridamqg #worldquiltflorida #wqf18
January 9 Show and Tell: Linda @flourishingpalms shared 1) "Urban Trek," a pattern by Heather Black @quiltachusetts that's domestic machine quilted and enhanced with big stitch hand quilting; 2) "Rainbow Rounds," a pattern by Jo Avery @mybearpaw that's domestic machine quilted with all over swirls, and; 3) "Berry Merry Wreath," a free pattern by Anne Deister @springleafstudios #centralfloridamqg #cfmqgshowandtell #wemakemodern
January 9 Show and Tell: Jane @grantharpster blew us away with her modern finishes! First: "Leftovers" from our chapter's July 2017 workshop with Debra Jalbert @madeofhonorquilts ; second: Jane's interpretation of part of a quilt she saw in a picture; and third: another great quilt! All were domestic machine quilted. #wemakemodern #centralfloridamqg #cfmqgshowandtell #showusyourmqg
Forty-two quilters (6 guests) attended our January 9 monthly meeting. Our first Show and Tell was shared by Beth @blue_dragonfly5 who made a quilt (left) to enter in @curatedquilts and another Interleave technique quilt (right) that she calls "potato chip quilts" because she can't make just one. Apparently this technique is addictive! #cfmqgshowandtell #wemakemodern #centralfloridamqg #monthlymqgchaptermeeting
At our Monday, January 8 meeting, we'll look at members' quilts and answer the question: "Is This Modern?" Using a checklist of modern elements, and constructive suggestions about how to make your quilt more modern, we'll figure out how to answer, "Yes!" Join us at 6:30 pm at North Lake Presbyterian Church, Lady Lake, Florida. #isthismodern #centralfloridamqg #wemakemodern #monthlymqgchaptermeeting
