In the News!

Good news!  The Kansas City chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild made the front page of the HOME section of the Kansas City Star today!  How exciting!
 Yep! A full page picture of one of Jacquie Gering's lovely quilts was right on the front. Of course, it was the section of the paper that I read  first this morning. It was a very nice article highlighting the modern quilting movement. According to the article, the KC guild is the largest Modern Quilt guild with 96 members! You can read all the details here.
So, being the good guild member that I am, I spent some time today finishing up the blocks for my entry in the "No Prints Allowed" challenge next month. I still have some trimming to do and then I will be ready to set the blocks together.
 The weather was almost springlike today....a record high of 70 degrees! After a little hike with my son and his family, I finished all the quilting on the Serendipity quilt. Hopefully, I'll have a finish to show you very soon!
I hear winter returns tomorrow; a great day to do some hand sewing on the binding.


  1. Jacquie blogged about the article too. I think it's absolutely marvelous that your Modern Quilt Guild received this attention. We MUST get ours going in Des Moines!

    Love, love, love your Serendipity quilt. Can't wait to see the finish. It's already gorgeous though. You're so talented!

  2. What an amazing group to be a part of!

    I can't wait to see the Serendipity quilt done... your quilting is always so creative!
