Sew Day Friday

Image
This is a quick reminder that sew day is this Friday November 3rd at the North Spokane County Library from 4:00pm to 8:00pm!!  We will be assembling the Quilts for Vegas quilt top using all those great modern snowball blocks.  If you're  wanting to change it up a bit, make a four patch with four 3" snowball squares for one unfinished block 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".
At the meeting we'll be sharing details about our next month's Christmas party and the guild's theme for 2018, here's a big hint...


Bring your finished quilts for "Sew and Tell" and any sewing machines!!  We're looking forward to seeing everyone on Friday.

We would also like to thank all of you that stopped by the INMod booth at the WSQ quilt show this weekend.  We had a great time meeting so many quilters excited about quilting and look forwarded to seeing new faces at our sew day!

Quilt Show Time

This weekend (October 20th - 22nd) is the Washington State Quilters annual quilt show and this year INMod will have a booth at the show!!

We will be showcasing our talented member's work with a small mini quilt display as well as selling raffle tickets and telling attendees about our guild and the national MQG!

We will also be passing out some free goodies, including a free modern quilt pattern and stickers!!  Along with our mini wall, many of our members have quilts in the show and the show, itself, has a modern quilt section, not to mention all the amazing quilts from quilters of all genres.

We will also be passing out instructions for the Quilts For Las Vegas blocks and please feel free to bring any finished blocks by the booth as well.

We hope you can all make it to the show and stop by to visit with some of our great members.  See you there!!





Quilts for Las Vegas

Image
After the tragedy in Las Vegas the Las Vegas Modern Quilt Guild began a quilt drive for victims, their families, first responders and heroes from that night.  We knew at once that this was something we want to be a part of.  The LVMQG is asking for finished quilts, tops and blocks along with binding, backing, and batting.  As a guild we're changing it up a little bit and are going to be making a block that is a modern take on the snowball block.  Check out this mock up!


We are asking for participants to make four 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" blocks using a low volume print background and a brightly colored solid or near solid accent.



Blocks can be made using either a traditional or improv snowball method.  Click below to download and print out the instructions.


INSTRUCTIONS

If you have a new or gently used quilt already made around your home and would like to donate it they are welcomed too!  All donations and blocks are due by Nov 3rd.  A couple of area quilt shops will be collecting fi…
