WestSide Modern June Meeting Hi-Lites

The WestSide Modern Club is going strong on the last Wednesday of every month at The Pine Needle.  Quilters young and old gather to hear about new trends in the quilting world and to share their projects.

We had a lively show and tell session in June and the quilts are featured in this slide show.

After the Show-and-Tell, Geri gave us a sneak peek at new fabrics coming in.  New fabrics are made by our tried and true manufacturers.  ("Kanvas" is a division of Benartex, "Dear Stella" is from Timeless Treasures.)

We learned more about our Portland Bridge Challenge - called "Portland Bridges Now".  This will debut at Northwest Quilt Expo in 2014. We were encouraged to walk the bridges- both over and under and be open to what inspires us.

Lastly.... we were given some fabric and challenged to make a 12 1/2" block - "Don't Be Square - Be There"  

Join us for our July Meeting on the 31st to see what blocks we have created.
