Quilting With A Modern Slant Launch Party

Our February meeting definitely ranks as one of my all-time favorites.  It was such a special evening as we celebrated the launch of awesome founding member Rachel May's fabulous book Quilting With A Modern Slant (currently #2 on Amazon's Best Sellers for Quilts and Quilting!!!).  If you don't have a copy you should get one now;-)  

Rachel was on hand to sign books along with many of the artists featured in the book.  BostonMQG members (past and present) represented include Alexis Deise, Rebecca Loren, Aimee Raymond, Laurie Matthews, Pippa Eccles Armbrester, Maritza SotoCaro Sheridan, and Monica Ripley.  Yours truly (Alice Webb Greer) is also featured along with my tutorials on hand quilting and binding your quilt.

A huge thank you to the gang at Gather Here for letting us crash their party!!!  Virginia & Noah sure know how to throw a party: snacks, booze, yarn, & fabric...  it was a crafter's heaven:-)

  1. It was a really good meeting - fun and festive with a great event of one of us for all to celebrate! We're proud of you Rachel! Your book is so readable - a quilting book I actually want to READ, not just look at the pictures! Love how well you've presented the herstory and integrated it into the present.
