Elements of a Modern Quilt


Meeting begins at 10:00am

Program begins at 11:00am


Ever wonder what makes a quilt a "modern quilt"?  There seems to be many definitions out there, but Lynn Hanna from the Inland Empire Modern Quilt Guild will share the Modern Quilt Guild's definition with descriptions and sample quilts. Join us as Lynn walks us through a few short presentations each highlighting a portion of the Modern Quilt Guild's definition of a modern quilt.

Stitches for Kids

Tatyanna, from Olive Crest accepted 30 quilts from Stitches for Kids.  The group has been very busy.  They even made the table topper Tatyanna is holding for Olive Crest's office manager, Angela Allen.  The table topper and quilt on the right were made from a donation of fabrics from Joy Rasmussen (Angela's mother). Joy was a CVQG guild member.
