Modern Monday #14: 3/4/13

  Modern Monday posts detail happenings and trends in the modern quilt blog world. I will discuss general news, significant contests and their results, new quilt-a-longs, and post Flickr inspiration boards. My hope is that everyone, both CJMQG members and modern quilters around the internet, will find some inspiration and get involved with the online world!


QuiltCon just happened! The next one isn't until 2015 (boo) but maybe we can plan a field trip?

Here is a link to some of the lectures at QuiltCon, provided on Craftsy for free. Some of those featured include Amy and David Butler, Angela Walters, Heather Jones, Mary Fons, and Jacquie Gering.
*EDIT: There's lots of quilty goodness from the Quilt Show over at Sew, Mama, Sew!

 New Quilt Alongs:

  • If you are interested in paper piecing (which has been a big topic the last couple of meetings), you should join the Forest QAL, over at Sewing Under Rainbow. You'll make blocks that are all about wildlife... and they are beautiful!

Mine is made with Kate Spain's Honey Honey - if you are interested, you can purchase a kit here (and I'll be bringing it to the March meeting!). The QAL starts this Wednesday on my blog, and if you'd like to QAL with your own fabric, we'd love to have you, too! :) The Flickr group is here, where you can check/post your progress, and see past QALs.

 Flickr Favorites: Somewhat based on spring!
