March Meeting

March is here! So much has taken place since our last meeting, and there is so much stuff coming up.

March's meeting is about all about modern quilting. 
A few of us who attended Quiltcon this year will speak to our experience there. I encourage you all the check out the Modern Quilt Guilds' post on all the winning quilts from the Quiltcon quilt showThere has been some interesting discussions about this topic already in many blogs. One by Blossom Heart Quilts  and another at Katie's Quilting Corner.
Which leads us into a discussion about What is Modern?
