January Notes -
Welcome Las Vegas Modern Quilt Guild 2014
Focusing on the Modern Quilt movement -
“Define modern quilts as quilts that are functional, include
bold colors, and are inspired by modern design. Minimalism, asymmetry expansive
negative space, and alternate grid work are often a part of modern quilt
compositions, as are improvisational piecing and solid fabrics."

It was a good night and a good time was had by all. We had a nice dinner with meatballs and sausage, cheesy potatoes, taco dip with chips, meat and cheese with crackers, cookies and pastry and cupcakes. YUM! Anyone who missed it, we are sorry for you! But Merry Christmas, anyway!
The P-P-P Christmas Gift Swap was a success. Pillows and pincushions and potholders were hand made and distributed by lottery. Everyone was happy with their acquisitions! Another Merry Christmas to you all!
Our officers for the 2014 year are Carolina Moore, President; Christa Watson, V.P.; Sandy Glynn, Secretary and Nicol Hardy, Treasurer. They hinted at some of the neat things they are planning for the first quarter and I, for one, am excited to get started.
