So come join us this Monday, June 19, 6:30 at Valleybrook Presbyterian Church. See you there!

|Need ideas for using old or vintage fabrics in new quilts?|
But, do you feel the only way to show off those vintage textiles or do justice to them is to use a traditional quilt block or pattern? Well, have no fear, the Quilt Police are on vacation and we'll show you how to take advantage of their absence!
At the next Choo Choo Quilters guild meeting, our hope is to help you see fabric in different ways. You don't need to use "modern prints" or "modern colors" to make a modern quilt. If anyone wants to bring some "old" or vintage fabrics to the meeting, we can play around with building a palette for a modern pattern.
Join us on Monday, May 15 at 6:30 pm. Let's get those old fabrics out of the closet and elevate them by making something new.

|Beads, synthetic fibers and other embellishments|
can enhance the surface of a quilt.
You have admired those quilt enhanced with beads, embroidery, paint, crystals, photography, buttons, charms and such. We want to explore those embellishments to add that extra sparkle to our quilts. Please bring your quilts for a guild-wide trunk show and discussion of all the options for enhancing your quilts.
We'll also have another border pattern to add to your Medallion Challenge Quilt. And if you attended the "Wonky Star" workshop with Mary Kerr, bring your project for Show and Tell. We'd love to see what you did in class.
We hope to see everyone on Monday!
