Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild/ April

 Saturday we met with the
Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild
 for our April meeting.
 Rebecca Whaling
provided a wonderful 
Square In A Square tutorial.
We have been asked as a guild
to make 8 inch finished blocks
with fussy cut centers
for charity quilts.
*I've already purchased
a fat quarter to get me started :)
 Rebecca brought her 
work in progress as inspiration.
I love how she is using 
low volume and text fabric 
for her backgrounds.
 More inspiration
 Nice job Rebecca!
Thank you for your help
in organizing our group
for a great cause.
 At the end of our meeting
we enjoyed 
Show and Tell
Hope Takes Flight
(made by Ana)
is a free pattern offered by
Robert Kaufman Fabrics
can be found
 From the book 
Modern Neutrals by Amy Ellis
 3-D Pinwheels
 Denise's wonderful Umbrella quilt
pattern by Laundry Basket Quilts
by Jenny Pidigo (Sew Kind of Wonderful)
was up on the wall at ETC. where our group met.
I had to take a picture because I love this quilt!
and must, must must make it someday.

I like that umbrella pattern and the Amy Ellis pattern Modern Neutrals - I might have to keep those in mind (along with the 50+ other patterns that are in my mind) LOL like I am ever going to get around to making them all!!!!

Great show and tell. Love the low volume backgrounds on the charity blocks!

I'm catching up with my friends slowly. IT was good to look at your blog posts today. Fun to see what is going on in your world. Love the square in a square traditional block. I have several kitchen quilts made just like those. Fun.
