PNWMQG meet-up 2013

It's been almost a month since I attended the Pacific Northwest Modern Quilt Guild meet-up in Portland!  It was an amazing weekend.  I took Isaac with me and he did great (and made me very popular!).  Lots of sewing and fabric shopping happened all over the city of Portland.  

I attended a charity sew-in at Modern Domestic, a really cute fabric shop, in the morning and worked on some "chicken" blocks. 

 Isaac was very helpful and took a nice long two hour nap while in the wrap and I was able to get in some shopping and still make two and half of the charity blocks. I believe enough blocks for three quilts were created throughout the day.

During the afternoon I went to several different fabric shops with some other ladies and loaded up on lots of great fabric!  I also finalized my color choice for the upcoming "Binary" quilt show for the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild. 

I am going with blue and green but I'm using five shades of blue (all Kona in Lake, Robin Egg, Periwinkle, Water, and Deep Blue) and five shades of green (again all Kona in Jungle, Juniper, Palm, Leprechaun, and Asparagus).  I have two ideas I'll be playing with over the next few weeks and hopefully one of them will work and will make a beautiful two color quilt.
