Tyler's Modern Quilting Group

That is not our official name.  We haven't decided on a name yet but we have several possibilities.    We have had our second group meeting and it was great!  We are still getting to know one another and there was way more talking going on than sewing - we are suppose to be a sewing group :)

At our second group meeting, we shared the name tags that we had made.  I gave a sneak peek in my previous post, so now I'll show you the whole shebang.
 Here is an up close and personal.  All my points met up!  I was so excited.  That's why I love paper piecing so much.  It's so precise. 
I'm not that great with embroidery, mostly because I don't practice and I only use it when I have to, but I think my name came out fairly well.  I just wrote it on muslin with a pencil until it looked okay and then I used the outline stitch to embroider it.

I put my Modern Quilt Guild pin on my name tag.  We aren't part of the MQG yet but several of the ladies that have been coming are individual members and there is talk amongst the group about joining.  I think we have to have a few meetings first to see who all is going to be able to come on a regular basis and get to know each other.  But by spring, who knows.  There is so much talent in the group of ladies that have been coming - it's astounding.  I'm hoping we can get the word out to people in the surrounding areas because I know there are more Modern quilters out there in East Texas wishing they had a group of sewing friends that they could get together with and have fun!
Last shot, I promise.  I'm proud of our group and I hope we can continue for years and years.
This pattern is from a book by Linda Causee called 365 Foundation Quilt Blocks. 
I used fabrics from my stash for the project in my favorite colors. 
The text print is a great one.  It is from STOF and I bought it at my LQS.
My name tag measures 4 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches.

Thanks for reading!
Have a great day!

Thanks so much for reading my blog and leaving a comment. I read every comment and try to reply to most of them although it may take me a couple of days - I'm a bit slow.
