Show your Stuff!

Hello Modern Quilters,

Is one of your quilting goals to enter a quilt into a show this year?  Here are two wonderful opportunities.

First, an exhibit at Threads of Time quilt shop in Danville, IL. will be held during the month of April. The exhibit is called “The Fabric Forest” and the theme is nature. I’ve included a Flyer   for all the details, or go to their websiteApril field trip?  We might have to do some fabric shopping after viewing the exhibit!

The International Quilt Festival in Rosemont, IL will have a special exhibit called “Mod Squad”. The festival is April 7-9 and modern quilters from the Midwest have been invited to submit quilts for the show.  Here is the link for the specifics.  This would be a wonderful field trip as well!
