Just a friendly reminder that if you are in a Hive, please remember
to complete and bring your blocks to each meeting. If you can't make
the meeting you can contact your queen bee for her address or just mail
the blocks to our Textile Center PO Box and we will distribute them at
the meetings. Our address is Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild, Box 11,

We had Cindy Lindgren from Modern Yardage,
and the generous donator of her City of Lakes fabric, give a
presentation on how she designs her fabric lines as well as show us samples of how
her fabric can be used in a variety of sewn and quilted items.

This meeting will be our annual Schoolhouse Meeting and we will have some of our guild members giving short presentations on a variety of quilty stuff. Watch Facebook for more information on this meeting.
