I have six pieces in the show and I will be the Artist in Residence on Saturday, May 9th. That term -- Artist in Residence -- sounds very weird to describe me, but we're going to go with it. I'll be demonstrating free motion quilting and improv piecing. If you come to the show, please come and say hello. I'm pretty nervous about this.
The Ottawa Modern Quilt Guild, of which I'm also a member, has an exhibit featuring our Montreal Meetup challenge and Block Design challenge pieces at the show.
Ottawa has a lot of very talented quilters so there will be lots of fabulous quilts to see! I can't wait!
There was just so much inspiration shared at the Montreal Meetup with the Montreal Modern Quilt Guild that I thought I'd share more photos (with the participants' permissions).
Our challenge was to design a 30" by 40" quilt that used one or more modern quilt design principles.
FYI, these are not my quilts.
This is a jelly roll quilt. Yeah, doesn't look like one, eh? Love these colours!

Kirstin's first quilt:
And her second!
Look at that quilting!
I haven't included mine here. I'll share my challenge piece later this week, when I host TGIFF! Yes, I'll have a finish to share...I hope!
Have a great weekend!
