Tara will be teaching us how to make mitered blankets. If you would like to make a blanket please bring 2 coordinating fabrics cut either 7/8 yd square and 1 1/8 yds square or 2 pieces cut 1 yd square and 1 1/4 yds square. If you are using minky it should be the smaller of your two pieces. Bring your own machine. If you have any questions you can go and comment on our Facebook page here and I'll try to get you an answer before tomorrow night.

The Modern Quilt Guild has announced the Kaffe Fassett Essay Contest on their blog. You don't have to be a member of a guild to enter. The question for the essay is "How has Kaffe influenced you in the past and how will that help you grow as a quilter in the new year?" Check out the details and the list of prizes by following the link above. Good luck!

Friends, we have had quite a drop off in attendance over the last few months. I don't know if this is due to the cold weather or other conflicts people may have but we have some big things planned for 2013! If you are interested in being a part of our fun, modern, stitchy group (even if you aren't able to come to every meeting) please come join us next Tuesday, January 15th. We will be doing a little planning for the new year and discussing new officers. We will also be making sewing kits. They are so adorable and so simple to make! Even better, the guild will be providing all the supplies for you!
Where: Material Girls, 1645 W Towne Center Dr, South Jordan, UT 84095
What: Planning activities for 2013 and making Sewing Kits! (All supplies provided by the guild!)
We hope you will come join us and invite all your fun, modern, stitchy friends!

The next guild night is Tuesday, September 18th and we are throwing a baby shower for Jeanine! Gifts are optional but she is having a little girl and the nursery is pink, turquoise, and green. Come out to support Jeanine and also to see Kara do a demo of a viewfinder block. The viewfinder uses small fussy cut pieces to feature some of your favorite patterns. If you have extra scraps bring them and we can swap our duplicates to get something new and fun to include in our blocks! We're planning a viewfinder mini quilt swap and it will be awesome!
Can't wait to see you all!
