I'm still on a huge high after this weekend's Chicago Modern Quilt Guild fall retreat (more on that soon)...
I woke up this morning to a call from Emily telling me that our CMQG Modern Art Challenge made it into the Modern Quilt Guild's September Newsletter! Pretty awesome if you ask me!! (Emily and I coordinated this swap - we're pretty proud of how smoothly it went and how awesome the projects turned out!) If you're not on the Modern Quilt Guild's mailing list you can see the newsletter here. We're on the right side bar, with a picture of the awesome quilt that Sally made!
Also, Emily has a guest post/interview up at Pattern Crush today!! Don't you agree that it's time for Emily to start her own blog?? :) The article is fabulous and gives a little insight to the world of printmaking - also you'll see some fabulous examples of Emily's hand-printed fabrics! Emily is the voice of our own CMQG blog - as she's our secretary this year!
Another one of our fabulous guild members, Donna was interviewed for the local paper the Chicago Reader. You can read the article here. Donna is our CMQG president and the interview is about the modern quilt movement. It's a great read, and I hope they do a followup on this since so many people don't even know about the movement!
It's been a busy day for the CMQG!
