CJMQG Guild Banner


At long last, I'm here to blog about the banner our guild made earlier this year! Members voluntarily made all of the blocks; their challenge was to make any modern block (whatever that meant to them) with the fabrics provided. Our chosen color scheme was a range of blues, greens, and a touch of orange. I just love how the orange adds to the overall feel!

Various members helped piece the quilt using several solid fabrics. Jessica Levitt and I pieced the scrappy backing. Jessica L. also longarm quilted the banner, and Robin B. bound it. The quilt was already featured at the Quilt Fest of NJ X in March - see more about our special CJMQG exhibit here at Jess L's. blog. We display it at many of our guild events, including the Mid-Atlantic Mod Retreat!

You can next see the banner at our outdoor exhibit at the Pennington Farmer's Market at Rosedale Mills in Pennington, NJ on 10/4 (9am to 1pm). Several of us will be there with our modern quilts, handwork, and guild information, ready for you to come say hello!

Great job members! We will surely cherish this guild banner for years to come!
