Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild July Meeting

It's so wonderful to be part of the Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild, and to know that we are now going to meet on a regular basis each month.
On Saturday we organized ourselves a little bit more, spending the first part of our meeting brainstorming and voting on policies to move our guild forward.
The 2nd part of our meeting was Show and Tell.
We were asked to bring a quilt we had made that demonstrates "our style", and another that we needed help on or pushed us outside our comfort zone.

Jill brought a very modern blue quilt that we all fell in love with.
I wish I had taken some close up shots of her quilting, because it was so well done.

Andee's Anita's Arrowhead designed by Anita Grossman
Great way to use up scraps and learn a fun new technique for putting blocks together.

I found a free PDF file pattern that can be downloaded from Quiltmaker Magazine HERE.

Andee brought a quilt she has had some challenges with, asking for suggestions on how to machine piece the top.

We have such a wide variety of talent and experience in this group, and there were several idea that made Andee say "I now like this quilt again!"

Another scrap buster by Andee

Martha loves to work with batiks, and bright happy colors.

The back of her quilt was as interesting as the front.
Tomorrow I will share with you more Show and Tell from the group.
