studioQ June meeting

     My art quilters' group met today..last Monday in June.  We often meet at the Cabbage Rose quilt shop in Fort Worth, TX.  It is a lovely shop and just the nicest people there.  It just loaded with fabulous fabric, great sales, etc.. And they have a classroom that people like us can meet in when there is no scheduled class.  We will either do a potluck or go out for lunch after we do our "Show and Tell" and talking.
     Today, eight of our ten were at the meeting..everybody had a lot to talk about and a lot to show!  We have just a couple more of our Color Chip Challenge to do and today, we did the colors given to us by Susan.

And we had some other wonderful works of are too....Rhonda and I are doing quilts for the Modern Quilt Challenge, using Michael Miller selected fabric. And everybody else had various items to share.
     I am kind of working on a series..using squares...this one is "A Round Peg in a 
Square Hole"!
My first attempt of the Modern Quilt challenge...did not like it at all!  So I deconstructed it and...
..put it back together. I am happier with this  (sorry for the blurry pic!) ..will do some heavy duty quilting on it!
