July Class in Review

Hooray for Session 4! Medallions were/are so fun and we're excited to be moving on to new and scrappy things next month. Everyone who chose to make medallions along with us came up with truly beautiful quilts. We would love to see them ongoing into next session, so whatever stage your medallion is in, please keep pecking away at it and bringing it for us to ooh and ah over.
Also please remember, if you haven't redeemed your card for all fabric from Session 4, you have until July 31st to do so, and then it will expire. I'm sure I don't have to remind you twice to go get your free fabric!
Session 5 begins in August and we're happy to say also begins our third year of Utah County Modern Quilt Group. This group has been such a great place for sharing your own individuality. I appreciate that each of you have been willing to share a part of you with all of us, and hope everyone feels safe in sometimes revealing mistakes and laughing a lot with the group. Please keep bringing whatever you make!
Thank you to those who brought guests to class, it's so fun to see new faces who are just as excited about quilting as we are!
As always, the group show-and-tell can be found in our flickr group, and the group medallions can be found at the UCMQG Medallion specific group. Both links are to the left of this blog. And if I missed a picture of your quilt on accident, or if you want to submit a better one of your quilt, please feel free! Things are moving fast during class and let's face it. I'm a quilter, not a saint.
A couple of changes for next session:
  • We will break into two groups again to manage traffic, so please make sure you sign up for the time slot that works best for you, until they fill up.
  • Your membership choices are one of two books, or 10 fat quarters to be chosen only as fat quarter cuts and all at the same time.
  • Sadly, Sydney will be moving to California and will not be joining us for Session 5. She has been a huge help both creatively and with the day to day of classes, and will be greatly missed!
See you all next month!
