Modern Quilt Guild Habitat Challenge

Habitat by Jay McCarroll

The Modern Quilt Guild is sponsoring a challenge using Jay McCarroll's new line, Habitat, for Free Spirit. Sounds fun, right? We can structure the challenge to fit our guild and can make basically anything that we'd like, from mini quilts to blocks, full sized quilts, quilted projects, etc. We are eligible to receive the equivalent of 6 Fat Eighths (or 3 Fat Quarters) for each participant, and the only rule is that we must add only solids, or additional Habitat fabrics, to what we receive.

 We also need to choose a color way, as we'll only be given one to work with. Here are the choices.

Interested? Please let me know by Tuesday June 7th, by emailing me at cincinnatimodernquiltguild @ gmail.com. In the meantime, we'll set up a poll here to choose our colorway.

June meeting and Sew-In

The Centennial Barn is not available during our regular meeting time in June, so our meeting that month will be held on Thursday, June 16th from 7-9 pm there. I've made the change in the calendar and I'll post an update on our Facebook page closer to the meeting date, too.

We're also holding our second Sew-In of the year on Saturday June 4 at the Barn. The time is yet to be determined, and we'll most likely charge a $5 fee to those who are planning to attend to cover our rental fees. More information will be coming soon on the Sew-In as well.
