A few tidbits to get you excited

Let me say first that the group we are already forming is absolutely amazing. Both in personality and talent. I have had the chance to meet a few local quilters here and even stop by a few blogs to see all the excited faces getting ready to be a part of this internet phenomenon we call Modern quilting.

I will be posting soon about how to get started in project modern if you are interested in the second round. You can find the details here if you cannot wait to read about it.

Also a few people have taken the initiative to do whatever they can to make this a true community of quilters, and friends. Meg has started a flickr group for everyone to share photos of there quilts with the group now before we all meet in January. Flickr is a free website for photo sharing and has become a great resource for us modern quilters.

We have also added tabs to this blog sharing free patterns and tutorials with some of our favorite modern quilts. It will also offer business services, other internet quilters photos to inspire you, and any up an coming events. Please feel free to share any events that you may know about by leaving a comment with the link.

Also a BIG announcement! Me and Jen were in Strawberry Patches today when Suzanne's excitement reared out of  her and she showed us all the pretty Kona solids that she had ordered. 60 colors to be exact! And she will be offering these at a fantastic price for retail customers as well as an added discount for the modern guild.

A big thanks to everyone who has helped spread the word, we are all looking forward to meeting the faces behind the quilts very soon. this group is community run and we would love to hear any input on what you would like to see from our modern quilting group.
