February Modern Medallions - Centers

Happy love month, everyone! I was certainly feeling it in class today. It was so nice to see some new faces as well as our long-time friends. We are so excited to begin this new session with our Modern Medallion Mystery. We know we gave you a lot of information this morning, so here's some of the highlights to remind you.
Today you should have recieved a punch card (or will next month if you missed today). A few reminders about the card:
  • Do not lose it! No fabric/discount can be used without it.
  • You get 1/2 yard equivalent each month, and some ladies wanted to get their 5 months worth at once. Feel free to do this, if it helps your medallion journey. You can pick up this fabric any day.
  • The 15% discount on anything in the quilt shop is available only on class days.
  • The 25% discount on batting/backing/binding needed to finish your quilt will be available in July.
JoyLyn will be emailing you all three of our patterns for our medallions, as well as each month's borders within a few days after each class. If you are not receiving these emails, please email her. We don't want you to miss out! And we also encourage you to find whatever patterns/blocks inspire you, regardless of what we show in class.
We now have a second flickr group just for our medallion show and tell. You can get to it by clicking here, or always clicking the link on the left side of this blog. The original link to our class show and tell is still there as well, and will include both groups' beautiful pictures.
Sign-ups will be available in March's class for the gray fabric exchange, which will go April-June, as well as a separate paper-piecing class taught by Anna May 4th, 10am-12pm. This class will cost $15 with more details to come. We are also planning on having a free sew-in after class this session, and will let you know when that sign up becomes available.

If you keep a quilt blog, please let us know so I can put a link to it on our list. And feel free to check out other class members' blogs to the right of this post.

And lastly, if you would like to see the quilts I chose out of the many, many Modern Medallions online, check out the bottom of this post.

QuiltCon Charity Quilt

Here's a quick shot of the quilt JoyLyn made with the QuiltCon blocks we were sent. This quilt will be donated to a children's shelter in Austin, TX. So fun to be a part of bringing warmth and quilting to others.

Quilt Along with Jennifer

I'm so glad to hear that Jennifer will be doing a scrappy quilt along for her beautiful rendition of Swoon that she showed us recently. It was the large poinsettia in Christmas colors. Feel free to follow along with your own creation, or check out her blog!
