February Meeting Recap

We had record attendance at our meeting this month, about 20 people in person and 20 on zoom! It was so much fun to see everyone. We had several new members in attendance and some guests as well. Our speaker, Carolina Oneto, was a real treat! Carolina is a wife, mother, civil/industrial engineer, and an award winning modern quilter who has immersed herself in the study of the principals of art. She is well know for her colorful quilts and she gave us a terrific lecture on “The Power of Color.” She overwhelmed us with beautiful examples of color inspiration and she shared how color can be used to influence the elements and principles of art. She graciously provided us with an outline of her presentation. Members can access it in Member’s Corner on our website.

February Block of the Month

2023 Opportunity Quilt

Can you help us sell raffle tickets for our Opportunity Quilt fund raiser? If you attend other guild meetings, please consider asking if you can take our quilt to your meeting and sell tickets. This quilt is so beautiful, that the tickets practically sell themselves! For more information about the quilt go to the 2023 Opportunity Quilt page on our website here.

March Meeting

Our March Meeting will be via Zoom and in person at Arlanza Library. We will have our 2022 Block of the Month reveal. Its not too late to participate. All 12 block patterns are available in Member’s Corner . They sew together quickly, and you only need to bring a finished quilt top to participate. Also, If you would like to donate your quilt top to charity, bring us your backing and binding and we will finish your quilt. Just make sure your backing is 8″ longer and 8″ wider than your quilt top. Each donation to charity gets you an entry into the end-of-year raffle basket drawing.

2023 Block of the Month

Guild member Tricia Williams kicked off our program with Half Square Triangles (HST’s). This year each block will be made with 16 same-sized HST’s. This modern take on a sampler quilt was designed by Omaha Modern Quilt Guild Member, Stephanie Jacobson and is used with her permission. Members will need a total of 192 same-sized HST’s. The size of the finished quilt will depend on the size of the HST’s each member chooses to make, and whether or not sashing is used. There are plenty of ways to make HST’s and we will share some of them on the Block of the Month page here. Check out the page for all the details, some inspiration, and some helpful tutorials.

Modern Wedge Challenge

Put on your thinking caps and your Machingers and join our 2023 quilt challenge, “Wedges”. Grab your 9°, 10°, 15°, 45° or whatever size wedge you have and create! We will show off our quilts at the July 2023 meeting. For the rules and other helpful information, check out our our 2023 Challenge page.

Meeting Recap

Hopefully you didn’t miss our September meeting. It was filled with so much information and inspiration! Just in case you missed it or need a review, read on to see what we learned, what we saw, and what’s upcoming. Also, now is your chance to volunteer!

Our September meeting started out with some helpful scrappy quilting tips. Scrappy quilts are a great way to fully utilize your stash and play with contrast, value and color. While we generally think of scrappy quilts as vintage or traditional, scrappy quilts can definitely be modern. To get some Scrappy Quilting Tips click here.

Christine Sharpe demonstrated her twist on quilted Christmas stockings. The steps are easy: make some Christmas blocks, arrange them into a quilt top in your desired height and width, make a quilt sandwich and quilt it. With right sides together, sew closed and bind the sides and bottom, and box the corners. You can customize your stocking by adding a tab or strap for hanging, or you can even add a drawstring top to make it a project bag. Christine showed us so many clever examples, that we Just may need to schedule a sewing day to try these out! Be sure to view the slide show below for Christine’s wonderfully creative stockings.

Volunteer’s Needed

Our Nominating Committee is looking for a few good volunteers! Would you be willing to contribute? We will have Board positions as well as some other fun opportunities. We are a fun and forgiving group and we strive to support each other, so this is a great opportunity to get your toes wet! Please let us know if you are interested or would like to know more by emailing us at iemodernquiltguild@gmail.com
