Rhode Island Modern Quilt Guild

This weekend I attended my first Rhode Island Modern Quilt Guild meeting in Lincoln, RI. I must say, I was relieved to walk in to a group of woman of all ages and skill levels. It was a great meeting and I saw so many amazing quilts - I can only hope to make one that good! I'm excited to keep attending monthly meetings and make some new friends; hopefully they can teach me some of their secrets :) I was able to share my plans for Quilts for CO and NM! They sounded excited to help and shared the information on their blog.

As I spread the word more and more, I'm starting to get anxious by what the outcome is going to be. Am I going to get 10 blocks? Or am I going to be totally overloaded with tons? Either way, I'm so excited for this project. Once we get closer to November and I begin planning my hopeful CO visit, I am going to be looking for help. I'm a beginner quilter, and as much as I'd love to be confident that I can do this all my self, I know that's being too adventurous. So if you're unable to make blocks, or you'd like to help in another way, please let me know. I'll be looking for help basting, quilting, and binding some of the quilts.

If you're planning on sending in some blocks, please email me for the mailing address. I'm not totally comfortable with posting it online, so I'd rather answer everyone personally (Also gives me a glimpse at the blocks I'll have coming in)

RIMQG Members, feel free to hold your blocks until the November meeting!! Or contact me and we can try to meet up. No need to waste money on shipping :)

Please share this information on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc!! I also have a flyer I'd be happy to send to anyone that can post it at their work, gym, etc. I appreciate all the help spreading this project.


  1. I'm uber excited about your project and big kudos to you for undertaking it! I was planning on scrubbing tubs and floors tomorrow morning but guess what? Now, I've got something much more important to do! Tell me a little more about your idea for the colors.. Should each block contain all 4 colors??

    1. Hi Patty!! Blocks can include all our any variation of the colors, as long as it's only those colors. For example, I'm working on one quilt made by myself that has red, white and blue fabric, and the binding will be yellow. I will post pictures as I make more progress on it :)
