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

Our next Central Florida MQG "Sew-In" falls on Saturday, February 24... the same day as QuiltCon in Pasadena. We're looking for ways to celebrate #quiltconfromhome during our 10am to 6pm sewing time together. If you have ideas, we're all ears! 👂🏼👂🏼 #centralfloridamqg

February 5 #showandtell Diane @dbcfla showed a quilt she made using Kaffe Fassett fabrics. Diane used a pattern but changed it up to create partial blocks and negative space to make the quilt modern. We love it! #kaffefassettfabric #centralfloridamqg #wemakemodern

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.

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

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

Show and Tell: Beth @blue_dragonfly5 made a quilt using deconstructed garments (jackets, ties, and a dress) received from @sherrilynnwood who found the clothing in a city dump. Adhering to the upcycling theme, Beth backed her quilt with a sheet. #showandtell #centralfloridamqg #upcycledquilt
