The last guild meeting was great, not only did I learn something new about personal growth but I finally grasp the whole modern quilt movement thanks to Kelly (from Sew Kelly Sews). She did a wonderful presentation explaining the concepts and ideas behind the modern quilt aesthetics. From the roots - Gees Bend quilts to what makes fabric have the modern feel.
|A Light Bulb Moment|
When she got to this part a light bulb went off! Now if I can just get the whole Modern vs Traditional fabric thing figured out.
My beloved Rowena has bit the dust and my husband got me a present yesterday...
It has the whole retro vibe going on, and my husband knew I would think it was cute as a button. Yea, it's a cheap Black and Decker 'Classic' iron but it so cute. If it gets hot and stays hot while piecing that's all I need. All the fancy-schmancy stuff my Rowena had I don't think I'll miss (I never iron clothes anymore now that the hubby is retired).
I am working on a new design for a quilt along, which will be very relaxed but fun and educational. If I get everything ironed out (shameless pun, sorry) will be able to share around the first of August.
