The Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild is growing!  We have already had to change locations to accomodate the popularity of this new guild.  Last Thursday night found us gathering in the Roeland Park Community Center, our new home. On the program was the greatly anticipated "reveal" of the Project Plume quilts.
Several months ago, Jen, aka Tula Pink (heard of her?) handed out 35 charm packs of her latest fabric line called Plume.  We could add just 1/2 yard of fabric (plus backing and binding) to create a quilt. Oh my, the creativity in that room is unmatched anywhere.  I've never been involved in a guild where there was more excitement over a "challenge" project like this.

This picture shows just half of the wonderful creations made from Tula Pink fabric.  Tula, herself, even made a quilt with a tree theme. (Can you spot her?)  I'm a  lucky duck to live close enough to attend this exciting new guild.
If you don't have a modern quilt guild in your city, maybe you should consider starting one up!

My entry was made with half-square triangles set in a around-the-world design. I quilted it with straight lines to emphasize the diamond shape.
Quilt guilds were the best invention, don't you think?


  1. The KCMQG is on fire! So many incredible projects all from one beautiful fabric line! Yours is one of my favorites (and the one next to it with the gray). Yummy! But they are all just wonderful. What an exciting meeting that must have been!

  2. This is lovely! Lucky you to be a part of a modern quilt guild. Seeing this photo on flickr today inspired me to cut up a charm pack I've been saving. Making this will fill two needs that I currently have: to make a small baby quilt, and to have some HST triangles made up to demo in a class I'm teaching tomorrow night! Thanks!

  3. What a lucky lady you are! I love your quilt... HST are so much fun!

  4. I had fun at our modern guild meeting, but to have Tula in your group! And Jacquie, have an awesome guild.

  5. Your quilt turned out beautiful and I loved hearing your tips at the guild meeting!
