February Meeting Reminder

Quilt-Con Recap! See what goodies, fun, pictures and stories our members Peg Pennell, Tom Meyer, Marilyn Rembolt and Sheila Green brought back from QuiltCon 2018 in Pasadena CA. 

Peg Pennell talks about modern elements Negative Space, No Borders and Cropping.

Don't forget!! Modern strings challenge "String Theory" is due in March. For more inspiration, use your favorite search engine and type in "modern string quilts" , find images on Pintrest by searching the same phrase, or visit your local library.

Great turnout at our Opening Reception Feb. 2 at the LUX Center for the Arts.  Thanks to all who provided cookies, helped and attended.  Extra cookies were taken to Sew Day and more will be at National Quilting Day. The show runs until the 28th of Feb so still plenty of time to go see the That's Modern exhibit at 2601 N 48th St. in Lincoln.

Please take the opportunity to sign up to talk about modern quilt elements. For more info, contact Peg Pennell at the next meeting. There are still a couple of elements available.

Remember, we now have a suggestion box! Let the board know what you would like to learn or talk about.

As always, bring your modern show and tell!! We love to see what you have been working on and let us know what makes your piece modern. Is it no borders, improvisation, bold graphic design? Tell the guild all about it.
