We had dinner with the founder of the Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild, Heather Jones (olive and ollie) on Friday night and got to hear about the modern Ohio Star quilts she and other members of the guild had put together.
At the Festival on Saturday I was amazed by the beautiful work the CMQG had on display! I was especially impressed by the many different modern takes on the one common element.
Saturday night we went the the CMQG meet-up and met such prolific and creative crafters as Jessica (a little gray), Faith (Fresh Lemons Quilts), and Rachel (imagine gnats). They are all super nice and fun!
I had a great time (even if I was a little star-struck!) There was definitely talk of more mid-west gettings together.
Now, after a whirl-wind weekend, I feel so inspired to sew!
