In our last two meetings we have been discussing our guild's participation in The Modern Quilt Guild's Charity Quilt Challenge. More information can be found HERE.
So far... Diane has purchased the fabric in the correct color scheme and is currently creating fabric packages for all of us wishing to participate (and of course our goal is that EVERYONE will participate). The theme is IMPROV with INTENT. At the September meeting Brandy and I presented a few samples of what that meant.
While we are waiting for our fabric... why not check out the archived webinar on The Modern Quilt Guild's (MQG) site just to get your creative juices flowing?? As a paying member of our guild, you are also a member of MQG. Go to their site (www.themodernquiltguild.com), log in, click on the EVENTS tab at the top of the page, Click on Past Webinars, scroll down to IMPROV QUILTING Cheryl Arkison July 2014... and enjoy. *The visual doesn't appear until 9 minutes in, so just keep listening until then. It's about 1 1/2 hours long, so get comfy.
Phew! I know that seemed like a lot to do just to listen to a webinar... but the site won't let me send you all a direct link as you have to be logged in as a member before you can view it.
ALSO... you can purchase ($20 currently... increasing to $29 in 10 days) and view another Improv seminar by Cheryl Arkison on Creative Live (www.creativelive.com). Click on the word CLASSES at the top of the page, then search for Cheryl Arkison. It will take you right to it. I watched it for FREE the other night, but that's because I just happened to stumble upon it by accident as it rebroadcast. Lucky me!
Pull out those scraps and start playing with Improv!!! Check back for updates and a tutorial next week.
