April Modern Medallion - Month 3 - 5.5" border

Friends! We keep seeing more medallions being begun and others growing. Thanks for taking the leap with us. Please check our flickr medallion group for the update. We also appreciate that additional projects are being shared from other fabric exchanges and other session samples and even other quilts catching your creative fancy. Those can always be found on our class show and tell flickr group. And still others love to just come and enjoy being inspired at this point in life. We love it all!
This month we're adding a 5.5" border, so your medallion before next class could measure 40.5". We shared five different borders this month, and all of those will be emailed to you in the coming week. If any of you are not receiving the monthly email, please let one of us know.
Anna's paper-piecing class is all but filled, and she will be sending an email out this week with a supply list.
Thank you, thank you ladies for coming when you can and bringing a piece of you to share with our group. We were a little rowdy today during show and tell (and will do better next month), but I know that I appreciated everything that was shared. We understand that you are giving us a peek into your soul when you stand in front of us with your fabric art. And it is beautiful.

Retro Rubies QAL Invite

Here is the detailed information about the quilt along our members were invited to join because of our group's flickr site.

Alyssa Lichner at Pile O' Fabric has invited anyone who would like, to join a quilt along (QAL) on her blog for her newest pattern, Retro Rubies. You would use your own fabric and need to purchase the latest issue of Modern Patchwork, a beautiful magazine, which can be preordered at this point.

She will also maintain a flickr group for the project here.
