March Comes In Like a Lion

We all know the saying and right now, it seems pretty appropriate. We hear at the Emerald Coast Modern Quilt Guild hope that everyone is doing well. 
We now have some extra time on our hands since we are quarantined so lets see what we have been up to:

 Some of us have been making masks. I'm so glad to be learning this. It is keeping me busy and helping me feel like I'm giving back.

 I know with mine, bottom pink one, it is pretty easy, but I made my own adjustments (don't all of us sewers do that? lol.) Garbage bag ties come in very handy for this project.  lol

Maureen was very busy! This is awesome!

Directional quilting

The Back

Cubed quilting!

Diane made a special quilt out of special materials for a special someone!

 Diane was caring for her uncle who had passed away. He’d been gifted many cotton boxers over the years and she included the fabrics in this quilt. It will be gifted to his granddaughter.  Love this Diane!

This she made from her leftovers after making the Hoffman challenge quilt. The center she named Northstar.

Lisa is continuing to work on her blocks from the mini curve ruler. When this quilt is done, it is going to be amazing!

Natalie has been busy with finishing up her flamingo quilt that she started during our retreat. How can you NOT love this?? 

This is a woven wall hanging she created

And she made a scarf because, well, it was cold where she was visiting. lol

I got some hand embroidery kits just in time for the quarantine. I'm learning a lot and am really enjoying it.

A surprise for Maureen

I love our guild!! There are so many sweet ladies that think of others. Below is what Maureen used for a pin cushion. I actually kind of like it. ha ha

This one was a gift from Loree to replace the above masterpiece. lol

 Loree made note of her love of polka dots, which they both have in common. the back is so adorable. It reminds us of the girly quilts Maureen has made.

Here is what our block lottery block was supposed to be for March. Simple and pretty colors. I hope we get to do the lottery for these soon!

Well, there you have it. We are doing our best to keep up with each other and keep busy during this trying time. We hope all of you are doing the same.
