So you have finished your project and it is time for binding. Oh, where are those notes on how to cut lots of binding? I did an internet search and found this video from Londa Rohlfing that demonstrates cutting lots of binding at the same time. I remember one of our guild members showed us this method awhile back and it is easy and works great.

Watch this video and give it a try next time you need binding for a new project.

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.


Year of Scrappy Triangles is here, designed by Leila Gardunia – @sewnbyleila on Instagram – sewnbyleila.blogspot.com is her website. A new scrappy block each week – so here it is check out what I have done. All patterns are Free (For Personal Use Only)

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
1114 US Hwy 31 South Suite B
Athens, Al 35611

Need directions or more information give us a call: 256-497-2901 or the quilt shop 256-771-2040.
