October and the VMQG

Everyone enjoyed our speakers from the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild.  Holly Broadland is the founder of the VMQG and co-President and Felicity Ronaghan is the other co-President.

Holly and Felicity talked about the Internet and the role it has in Modern Quilting, both in spreading ideas and in helping people connect and share their interest.  They talked about their interpretation of Modern Quilting and finished with a trunk show.

Following are a few links that were mentioned:

    • Holly’s blog is holly’s red bike – scroll down on her blog for a picture of Holly with her rainbow quilt
    • Felicity’s blog is Felicity Quilts – read Felicity’s FAL (Finish-a-Long) Goals
    • The next Quiltcon is in 2015
    • Craftsy.com – an online source for courses and hints

Other hints from Holly and Felicity —

    • Flckr and Pinterest are used to share and organize pictures
    • On the Internet there FALs and there are “Quilt Alongs”
    • You can find books at the public library by searching with the keywords – modern quilting
    • Pinterest

From Lorna – we have some Modern Quilting books and they will have a wide green label on them.
