Spaña Modern Quilt Group: First meeting!

Here are a few pics from our first group last week. I lOVE the looms in the background. We are surrounded by weaving looms there becasue at the Fiber Arts Center that is their most common thing. We have a strong weaving tradition in our communities. I am not a weaver, just a quilter and a knitter. It really is a nice space to use for sewing groups. 

We started the group because a few ladies from the community asked me to teach them how I make quilts. Instead of setting it up as a class, I rented the sewing room for us as a group to use. So now I am getting to sew with some old and dear friends and neighbors. We expect a few more to join us so we'll do some introductions and WIP's in a few weeks.

I set up the group to do a Shapes Sampler together this summer. It's very very basic but the group will definately build some piecing skills and will quilt whatever they piece. This is a pic of the Shapes Sampler 2015 coming together:

We will be meeting each Wednesday evening in June and July so feel free to sew along with us!

  1. The quilt is coming along nicely - really like the colour choices you've made! Must be great to have a group like that - very jealous!
