Weekend Fun with the Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild

CMQG 1

I’m back from another weekend away, this time sewing Improv with the Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild.

I had such fun on Saturday! I spent about 5 hours with a wonderful group of ladies, demoing and talking about piecing improvisational log cabins and watching everyone’s different blocks come together.

Huge thanks to the super sweet and funny Andie (above) for coordinating this workshop and inviting me to come teach. And also a big thank you to the Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild for hosting me (and showing up!) and those that traveled several hours to attend.

And my sister will tell you – quilting is not for the faint of heart. It was 85 degrees in the room! We are all super tough troopers though and quilted through the heat.

Crafty Chloe by Heather Ross at Hancocks - my dd is going to go nuts! Thanks for the tip @jenib320 !

Finally – completely unrelated but while I was in Cincinnati I found out from Jeni that Heather Ross has some fabric at Hancocks! I rushed to the store by my parents house and picked up some prints. These are from the children’s book she illustrated, Crafty Chloe. (Which my daughter happens to love!) I was so excited to see them, I am a huge sucker for any of her artwork. If you want some for yourself, be sure to check out your local Hancocks store in the Girl’s Novelty section.
