Our member-driven Diversity & Inclusion
Committee developed the corresponding Community Guidelines to inform our actions in creating an
equitable and safe community environment. We looked to these guidelines
before making our social media posts last week. We know we have much more
work to do and the work of racial equality is crucial to our mission of
creating community in modern quilting.
Goal: Feature Black quiltmakers in MQG content with increasing regularity to the point of being a programming standard.
Goal: Use the MQG platform to embrace the history and culture of Black textile art and artists, as well as share anti-racism resources.
We hope that you will continue on this journey with us. Please
feel free to share ideas for future actions with us at email@example.com. And as always, keep on

OK. It was somewhat instinctive that I could see the top thread loose.... OH but the loopy loops when you and I peek on the underside.

Browsing thru a book again..... Carol Sterbenz spoke of Inspiration...... as a collision of what I desire, the talent I possess and my imagination!
When I continue to show like interest and browse around.... I keep a careful eye on who else walks up on the driveway and might see the fabric. So... I go back... and the sale is made. She was overcharging on several little items. I put them back --- paid out $6.00 and literally ran! I sensed she knew she had understated..... kinda wanted to change price.... But I ran. BARGAIN OF THE YEAR I'D SAY

Thus, and indeed QUILTIN' THE QUILT becomes a very special process, stitch by stitch I can see a transformation of fabric, batting and backing stretched even and flat. And a-ha ! The final roll and fold and clamp is in sight. (Minus a few thread breaks or bobbin re-winds). I'll blog what I learn about thread weight and tension on my Coronet longarm as time goes on.....
Hoping your find the same joy in holding the finished product of an official QUILT. A label, the binding and a hanging sleeve prepares the quilt for the owner and upcoming quilt show!
