Out around the blogosphere

This and that today.

Have you seen that we’re doing weekly posts on the Modern Quilt Guild blog about what different member guilds are up to around the country and world?? Well we are! And while you’re over there, if you haven’t joined yet, check that a member guild hasn’t popped up near you! We’re at an amazing 54 guilds strong… and still growing!

And did you see the amazing give away over at the Fresh Modern Quilts flickr pool?? It’s in celebration of growing to  2000 members and I put together a cute little fat quarter pack that’s included in the tons of amazing prizes.

Otherwise I’m back to work again so I’ll be around here less. Not completely gone but quiet for sure. I promise I’ll be back with a vengeance in June!

    Oh boy! I was a kid in the 1970′s and those remind me of our sheets and pillowcases! Very cute fabrics!

    oooh- thanks for sharing. I hardly ever use flickr but this looks fantastic– I love seeing all the quilts and it is great inspiration because sometimes I look at my fabric and can’t figure out HOW to put it together/color combos to use it up.

    And I have a totally unrelated question what is the consensus on washing fabrics? Do you wash all yours before you cut and sew? Do you wait for the top to be pieced? I’ve done it both ways and one time ended in disaster with half my quilt top coming out shredded but I think I may have been a bit skimpy on some of my seam allowances. Anyway- just curious. :)
