April Sew Day!

Hot on the heels of our March meeting, is our April Sew Day!  It will be this Saturday, April 2nd from 10:30-3:30pm at the International Quilt Study Center and Museum.  There will be a demonstration at 11am by Shizuko Kuroha who has a solo exhibition at the Museum right now. If you are a guild member and would like to attend this Sew Day, please send an email to <info.lincolnmqg @> to be put on the list.  Because of the demonstration, everyone needs to be finished setting up to sew by 10:45am.

March Meeting Highlights: 
Everyone presented their finished Try-Angles challenge piece, there were 24 quilts in all!  Our youngest guild member, Miss Brooke, was the winner of the popular vote with her very cool quilt!

Sheila Green gave an overview of this year's QuiltCon, giving us a peek of how fun the event is, and showing quilts that won awards, and talking about the different trends she noticed in the modern quilt exhibition.   She brought back lots of fun swag, and I think everyone received a little goodie!

A big thank you to the Bernina Sewing Studio for having our ever growing guild meetings, and thank you to Sew Creative for donating fat quarters for our raffle!

Our show and tell keeps getting better and better, head on over to our Facebook page to check out the whole gallery of Try-Angles Challenge, and all the show and tell pieces.  Tag yourself or your friends if you see them, you don't have to have a Facebook account to look at photos!

Very pretty quilts! Thank you very much for sharing these pictures here. I am pleased to see these colorful quilts. Pretty soon I will be taking part in a quilting competition at local venues in NYC and working on spring themed quilt for that.
