ECMQG Ambassadors of Modern Quilting at the Surfing at the Beach Quilt Show


Wowza! Put a goal out there, then make it happen. That’s what members of the Emerald Coast Modern Quilt Guild did.  Our display of minis showcasing Flamingo, the Kona COTY 2017, at the Surfing the Beach Quilt Show by The Flying Needles Quilt Guild looked great!
Since this was our first time having a booth at the show we were a little unsure how it would come together. Luckily our members were able to dig into their stash of finished projects to help prop our booth.
We did a lot of cutting, pressing and sewing of our display curtain, it was worth it!
Guild members were available to answer questions about modern quilting and to help clarify that we do more than cut and sew randomly.
We chatted and laughed with local quilters as well as many Snowbirds. Sharing the joy of fabrics and quilting is always easy.
We had a total of seven modern quilts entered in the show by Lisa, Natalie and Loree.
Lisa and her "Happy Baby Quilt"
Our Guild charity quilt "Red Plus Blue"

Lori's "Sweetie Pie" quilt from the Riley Blake Sashing Stash challenge

Thanks to all of the guild members that participated in making this happen.
