 April Meeting Recap

2022 Theme - Exploring Modern

April Meeting topic : Modern Traditionalism

What is Modern Traditionalism? The term " Modern Traditionalism" generally refers to any quilt that has a traditional pattern, block, or design as its foundation, modernized in some way using one or more modern techniques.

 - we saw an educational video on how to create modern blocks

 - we divided into groups for hands on exercises to turn traditional blocks into modern ones.  

Our second quarter challenge - make a quilt of any size in the Modern Traditionalism theme.  Your finished quilt is due at the July meeting.
