Summer...a Challenge, a Quilt Along, a Workshop

Summer and all the busy-ness that comes with it have taken over our lives, but OKCMQG is still alive and well!  We have some fun things happening and in the works right now - here's what's going on with us:

  • Habitat Challenge:  Our mother ship, The Modern Quilt Guild, organized a "challenge" to all chapters and we jumped right in.  The challenge is to create something (as a group or individually) using Jay McCarroll's "Habitat" fabric only...we can add solids if we wish, but that is all.  The fabric is provided at no charge by Free Spirit.  We LOVE this line and are so excited to participate.  We've chosen to make blocks individually for a quilt that will be donated to a local charity of some sort.  We'll post updates here in the future.  By the way, Jay McCarroll was the winner of Project Runway's first season : )
  • Single Girl Quilt Along:  Denyse Schmidt's "Single Girl" quilt is a really fun modern quilt pattern as all of her quilts are.  Several of us are working on the SG quilt together online for fun and support.  We're only just getting started so if you want to quilt along with us go get the pattern (Quiltworks in Casady Square has them) and some pretty fabrics and jump on in!  You can follow along on our FB group if you are a member and on Angela's blog.



  •  Fabric Printing Workshop:  This is in the planning stages and will most likely take place this fall.  We'll be learning techniques for printing fabric along the lines of the awesome Lotta Jansdotter.



 Thanks so much for visiting the OKC Mod Quilter's blog!
