Traveling Quilt Project Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild

Our newly formed (2 months old!) Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild is starting a traveling quilt project.   About 8 of us signed up to do this and we exchange the start of our quilts at our next meeting.   I have decided to do houses for my center.  We are to add to one or two borders to the quilts as we get them.  Each quilt will come with a journal with an entry from the owner about her wishes for the quilt.   After each participant has added to the quilts, we will get ours back for the surprise reveal!   I have participated in projects like this in the past and have been happy with the results.  Should be fun!

The block looks distorted in the picture, but I think that is a result of the angle I took the picture from.   Have to get that design wall started so I can get better pictures.

Our Coastal Quilters meeting is Saturday–we are part of the Pine Tree Guild here in Maine.   One of our members is giving a demo on tips and tricks –demonstrating rulers, quilting aides, and showing what to do with your scraps.   Looking forward to this.   Many talented people in this group and my favorite part of the meetings is “Show and Tell”.   I’ll show my selvedge quilt and another simple design in yellow and greys.
