Alissa from Handmade by Alissa started the Modern Quilt Guild and chapters have exploded across the country and across the world! Many inspiring members of the guild braved to answer the question What is Modern Quilting? and gathered interest from the greater online community to meet in person on a regular basis to learn from each other and work on collaborative projects and more!

The Modern Quilt Guild

I recently joined the SF Bay Area chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild but since they have been holding their meetings in Redwood City (about an hour commute by train for me), I joined up with some East Bay modern quilters and we had our first meet up on Tuesday at my ultimate favorite fabric store Stonemountain & Daughter Fabrics in Berkeley! It was wonderful to meet fellow quilters in person and see their awesome projects! Stacey of Peppermint Pinwheels shared her newest quilt top that you can see in the header picture of the new blog I created for our group! I brought along my Cross My Heart Quilt which was the last quilt that I’ve finished recently.

We talked about our backgrounds, inspirational quilters, cool techniques and ideas for future meetings! I’m really excited about our new group which makes me love quilting even more by being part of something bigger! I’m self taught and I’ve mostly been quilting with what I’ve learned from online tutorials on my own. I’ve learned so much already! I can’t wait for our future meetings! If you’re interested in modern quilting groups, go check out one in your area!

Would anyone from the Bay Area be interested in a Plush Makers Guild? That would be so so beyond awesome!!

I’ve been busy with extreme new plushie production for my upcoming craft fair applications so I’m sorry for the lack of new posts but new plushies will be making appearances soon!
