DCMQG + Downtown Quilt Photo Shoot // Favorite Things

Streetscape 2
DC Modern Quilt Guild met this morning at Teaism , which is a great substitute for the coffee shop we used to meet at occasionally. If you are local, or even somewhat local, I encourage you to check out the flickr group, the new blog, and plan to meet up with us at some point (soon). We have a monthly schedule pretty well mapped out for the rest of 2012–we meet on the 3rd Saturday of each month (today was an exception).

Today, people suggested some non-Saturday-informal events-gatherings- field trips-get togethers. I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with.  This was my “show and share” for today. It’s my Streetscape in Triangles on the Navy Memorial’s fountains, in front of the National Archives. I had a quilt. I had a great backdrop. And all I had was my iphone. Next time…

And now, back to Teacher Appreciation Week prep…. National Archives-around the corner from DCMQG meeting

    I love your quilt! I wish our MQG would get off the ground, 3 meetings in the last 6 months.

    Wow – love the palette and the design. Did you place randomly or really play with the placement? It just works so well! Beautiful.

    What a gorgeous quilt! I really love the mix of solids and prints you chose. And the colors are so vibrant and beautiful!

    Great photo location! Our meetings are on Thursday nights, so not really light enough yet for photos, but give it another month!
