The scheduled presenter for February’s meeting had to cancel at the last minute, so we used the opportunity to show traveling quilts that are being worked on by some of the members of Mount Battie Modern quilters (most of whom are also members of Coastal Quilters).
Traveling quilts are worked on in rotation by the participants, each of whom prepared a notebook with a list of parameters that she wants in the quilt that will eventually be hers. For instance, some chose a theme or quote that they wanted their quilts to be based on, or indicated certain colors or fabric designs; others included things they did not want in their quilts. Each quilter has two months to work on the block(s) for each of the quilts.
The images below show the progress that’s been made on these fun quilts over the past year.
