Phoenix Modern August

It's so nice to see the Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild really starting to get organized.
We have an official meeting place now: The Chandler Police Department building, 3rd Saturday, every month.
Yes, you read that first part right.
The Chandler, Arizona police have a wonderful conference room where they welcome several quilt groups.
I have to admit, I did feel very safe :)

The ladies brought their machines, or did hand work.
Alyssa taught the group how to make a really nice wool needle case. (more about that later)

We didn't have an official Show and Tell, but I did go around with my camera and took pictures at work stations.

One quilter just finished Amy Smart's Double Crossed

Love the colors she chose.
I told her Amy would be so proud!

The pdf pattern can be downloaded on Amy's web site HERE.

Kirsten brought her latest design, with a pattern coming soon.
She asked for suggestions from the group on how they would do the quilting.

We had a good turn out, even with so many out of town and on vacation.
I will share a few more photo's from the group tomorrow.

You always have great show and tell from your group Nedra. Did I get it right? The Arizona quilt group is your new group since you moved there? You will be safe there I'm sure - Hugs Nat
