Alpine Quilt Guild Lecture

JoyLyn was asked to present Modern quilting to the members of the Alpine Quilt Guild last night. We had a blast showing what we do in our group, and where we feel Modern is going. It was also a treat to see some of their show and tell. They have truly talented quilters in this large group. Flora Gillman told us this guild has been around for 24 years now!

This quilt was brought by Cindy Cloward of Riley Blake, and recently won their Amoure' Quilt Challenge.

Aniva Willoughby has been creating this beauty, check out the back of this English paper piecing quilt she's doing. To me, it was cooler than the front!

And a beautiful example of machine quilting by Helen Butler.

We were able to show a few of the medallions from our group members and they were really impressed. I heard a lot of comments afterwards about how we got some new wheels turning, and in the quilt world, that's always a good thing. Thanks for being so creative, friends, and sharing your talent with our Modern group!
