The Los Angeles Modern Quilt Guild is in action!

We had our first meeting for the LAMQG last night. It was so much fun! Such a wonderful group of people who love to chat about quilting as much as I do.

    Argh, I’m so sad I couldn’t make it! Hubby had to work late and I wasn’t about to unleash my 5-week-old on all of you. Have another meeting SOON!

    Do please share all, our local quilt group needs new ideas and a good dose of perk up. Thanks, and if I lived in LA, I’d love to come.

    Your previous post would be a great topic for the guild since we were talking about just creating without a pattern. It WAS a great meeting and it WILL be such a wonderful and inspiring guild. Thanks for your inspiration and leadership.

    Oh, I’m so jealous I don’t live in LA. It sounds/looks like a blast! I feel so isolated in Michigan. Nobody does modern quilting around here! Congratulations on the guild! Looks like lots of friends and food and fun :)

    I live in Ohio and would LOVE to start one here. I feel like there’s about to be a quilting revival and this is just what the quilting world needs! Please continue to share the how/what/when etc so that I can learn from you. Not sure how to get one started here.

    HI Stephanie! Keep me in the loop if you do start one because we should all be united!

    Man! I so wish I lived in LA! Looks like such a fun group :)

    Add Wisconsin to the list! My local guild is all grannies who make pastel blue quilts. They are so sweet and I do love them but I am so jealous of the LA girls! Wish I was with you rock stars!

    I guess it’s a good thing I don’t live in LA because I would want to join you and you all look a lot younger than I do! Boo hoo.

    This sounds so exciting, I’d love to find out more information about joining!

    I live in the L.A. area… sort of. I would love to know more about the group and possibly join. Please let me know how I would go about doing so. Thanks!
