Hi, Lucinda - I just met Ellen at a meeting of the Cleveland Modern Guild! She is new to the area and just sat next to me... Super nice girl, She has some beautiful quilts and awesome quilting. I really miss you guys. Hope all are well. Congrats on the sales!!
Hi Paula! We miss you too! I hope you are enjoying your new Cleveland MQG and maybe we can do a combined gathering or swap of some sort. Happy Thanksgiving! Lucinda
Lucinda, Thanks for sharing this thesis. I did find it interesting and thought provoking too. For me it was the aesthetics first as seen in mags, books and at quilt shows. As I look at quilts I have made in the past I most enjoyed making quilts with simple design lines. It seems that quilts that had drawn my attention finally have been given a name.The attitude of lack of rules or at least a relaxing of what is acceptable has inspired me to explore trying to machine quilt my own quilts. I especially am drawn to straight or simple lines of quilting. I have several small tops together that I plan to quilt myself - some for practice and some for gifting/using.Certainly the most exciting part of MQG for me is the open and inviting attitude at NW Ohio meetings. Another reason to give thanks this year!!
Cheryl we are glad to have you be part of the group. I'm a bit like you - I'm attracted by what I've seen and am challenging myself to make - but I love the relaxing attitude the most! See you soon. Happy Thanksgiving!
