Everyone loves a road trip and in first place is a road trip to attend a meeting with other quilters. Last Saturday we loaded up the car and went to Nashville. We visited the Music City Modern Quilts Guild. The guild is about eight years old and has a membership that loves to quilt. They meet once a month on a Saturday and have a short meeting and then a sew day.



They welcomed us with open arms and shared the information about their guild. The members cover a large range of ages. We enjoyed their program on how to make bags.

Of course, just like all guilds they had “show & tell.” I have posted several of their quilts. I would encourage you to plan a road trip to visit a guild. I have found quilters are a friend group and love to share. Visit their website: musiccitymodernquilters.blogspot.com

Saturday when we went to Nashville to visit I decided after looking at some of their quilts at “show & tell” I would see if I could conquer the “half square triangles.” Last night to my surprise I found something that I think is special. Now you have to remember I am a scrapper – can scrappers do modern quilts? Well, I say they can!! So pay attention.

Our February meeting was a surprise to all of us. This meeting is the one where we voted to become a guild. A real guild a member of “The Modern Quilt Guilds” – this is a big step but guess what we voted and took that leap of faith. We are starting out small “but determined” and I am sure we will grow. I am posting a few of our “show & tells” from that meeting.

If this sounds like fun to you please join us at our next meeting on March 14 at 10:00am. The location is:

3Hens & A Chick Quilt Shop
