February Meeting Reminder

Here's a friendly reminder that our Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild meeting will be held this Saturday (February 15), at the Redwood City Library. The meeting is scheduled to start at 1:00. 

Things to bring:

*Show 'n Tell
*Personal Challenge Item (Radiant Orchid project)
*Scrap Swap Bag filled with yummy fabric goodness for your swap partner
*Your name tag
*Charity blocks and quilts
*Enthusiasm and a positive attitude! 

Please note: this list is not necessarily all-inclusive. It's quite possible there's something important that's been left off, so if you think of something that should be added, please speak up! 

After the meeting, from 3:30 - 5:00, there will be Sewcial Time! Please bring a project -- cutting, handwork, binding, design. The Charity Committee will have a project for us, too, so plan to stick around and have some fun!. Meet new friends, chat with old friends, and eat some yummy snacks!

Triangle Challenge

This is a guild challenge.

The current challenge theme, delivered at the January meeting, is "Triangle."  Your mission is to create a pieced work that represents your interpretation of that theme.  You can make any project that you want, the only restriction is that your finished project somehow expresses or relates to the theme.
Everyone who wanted some got a  little bundle of fabric -- the pieces were different colors/sizes, but the total amount of fabric was the same (some may have gotten four little pieces, another three slightly larger, etc.).

The fabric was a mix of Cat Nap and True Color and you are not barred from the challenge if you didn't get a pack. You can use just the fabrics provided, fabric you buy or add as much of any other fabrics as you want.

Any size from Potholder to King. Mugrug anyone?

Challenge projects are due in March.

Out of the area? Play with your own fabrics (you could buy some of the above ;-)  ). Link to your project in the comments.
