I am excited to be going to my second meeting of the Triangle Modern Quilt Guild today in Chapel Hill. The first meeting I attended, I blogged about here, was a tour of SpoonFlower.
Today's regular meeting will be at Thimble Pleasures quilt shop. I love how they usually have swaps and challenges associated with each months meetings! Today is a pillow swap and scrap swap.
I signed up for the pillow swap through the guild website discussion group. John (aka Quilt Dad ) sent us secret partners. Mine was Patricia of Piece Peace who said she like bright colors and modern prints in anything I wanted to make. A last week's Bee I created the top. And here on my studio comfy chair is the finished product.
I quilted the top with cotton batting and a muslin backing. Then I sewed wool felt flowers on. I created these with my sizzix that I blogged about here and here.
The backing I used to swraps of Valorie Wells and Ami Butler flannels.
I really love the challenge of swaps. I cant wait to see what my partner created for me!

I used regular cottons and added interfacing and lining .
