Ithaca Modern Quilt Guild

Hey guys! No, I haven't been eaten by a bear, fallen off a cliff, or otherwise disappeared from the face of the earth. Just busy trying to wrap up the semester (classes finished last week, yay! but now the grading...oh, the grading) and plan a move halfway across the country before Christmas. So things will probably be a little sparse here until I get settled in in January, but that's life! I try to pop on and check out what you guys are up to every once in awhile, but I'm also trying to limit my time on the computer so that I face down the pages-long to-do list I've got. :)

Yesterday I went to my first Modern Quilt Guild meeting! Pat, from Color Me Quilty, has been working hard on this for several months, and yesterday was their second meeting. I was pretty bummed I have to leave something that fun when it is just started, but I still think it's a pretty cool undertaking. Ithaca is a highly artistic community and is home to a lovely and successful quilt shop, and I think it's something that will do very well!

I'm sewing the binding on my gray and yellow quilt that has been my only ongoing project for ages. Then, I see that this fabric line is coming out!

Well, that certainly would have made things easier. Oh well! I guess my friend M was just a little too ahead of the curve in picking gray and yellow as wedding colors last summer. :)

Pin It


  1. I love the yellow and grey friend's wedding next spring is also grey and yellow (with a little bit of green!)

  2. Love the greys and yellows. Good luck with the grading and moving :)

  3. Oooh! Where are you guys moving?

  4. Oh yellow and grey, yummy - and news of a move?!

  5. I was so fun to meet you in person. Best of luck and success in your move! At least I can keep up with you on your blog!

  6. I loved seeing your gray and yellow quilt on Sunday at the Ithaca meeting. It's gorgeous, and I'm sure your friend will love it! Sorry to hear that you're leaving the area and won't be a part of the group anymore.

    I see you're a grad student at son is a junior there and loves it! Good luck to you in your quilting.

  7. Hi! I saw your comment on Epbot. My husband was in your boat (Eh, I'll probably never get married, never have a family, etc). He met me, we got married, and now he's step-dad to two kids. He enjoys it, and feels no need to add another child to the mix.

    So keep your mind open, and don't give up at a spry 28 :)
