I'm a member of the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild. In April we had a new mother in our guild. Usually someone comes up with a plan and the guild works together to make a quilt for the new baby. We decided that a string quilt would be a great quilt for a new baby. Each block was supposed to finish at 8" by 8" and be sewn onto a muslin backing.
Free-Motion Quilting with Angela Walters. This is a motif I really enjoy quilting with. I think it is a great all-over design. I need to take more close-up photos of the things I quilt.
The finished quilt was presented to the new mommy at the April meeting. I think it was a great project that allowed everyone to participate and created a great finish.
If you're looking for a good tutorial on string blocks I highly recommend Bonnie Hunter's blog Quiltville. Her blog is full of free patterns, tutorials, photos of her quilts, stories about her travels, and you can buy her books directly from her.
Has your guild done any fun group projects recently?
