----------The Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild distributed swatches of Echo fabrics and charcoal solid for members to make something for...ourselves!
|All for me, me, me!|
----------BAMQG also hosted a pillow swap where each member stuffed a paper bag full of fabric scraps which was exchanged for another bag of mystery member's scraps to be made into a pillow for our April meeting.
----------Then I joined Contemporary Quilt and Fiber Artist this weekend and participated in an "Under the Sea" fabric exchange where each member brough 20 fused scraps that evoke an ocean feel: fish, water, shells, coral/algae, etc and swapped them for more to be made into an art quilt for our May meeting.
|I'd like to be...under the sea...|
----------And then my primary quilt guild launched a Crazy Elegant Quilt Challenge in November using all 21 very diverse fabrics included: silks, polyesters, upholstery, velvets and some quilters cottong with very floral patterns.

----------And then I hope to try my hand at making Artist Trading Cards to swap with fellow CQFA members. The president so generously gave me one of hers to start my collection and provide some ideas.

I have all these projects laying out across any surface in my studio to help drum up some ideas and hopefully motivation to cut and start sewing! Wish me luck.
