March Guild Meeting started with Kelly Orr, the President of Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild introducing the Juried Invitational Quilt Show at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles. The show is open to all 4 Bay Area Modern Quilt Guilds including ours! It will coincide with their exhibit of Ohio Amish Quilts, and each quilt entered should be “inspired” by Amish Quilting.

Next Tina introduced the Michael Miller FREE Petal Pinwheels Fabric Challenge, sure to spawn a lot of bright and cheery quilts! Each quilted object will be due June 23rd.

At Sew and Tell, Dana and Tina shared their “Radiant Orchid” Quilts– just one more challenge we couldn’t include on our roster, but would be totally fun to do anyway!
