IMQG First Fridays Quilt Show

On the first Friday of each month, Indy art galleries stay open late for "First Fridays." Last night, the Indy Modern Quilt Guild hosted an event to showcase some of our quilts for the public. We set up outside of the fantastic Crimson Tate fabric shop. Here are some pics!

You might remember this recent finish. Since we brought some friends with us that night, I got the pleasure of surprising Sally and Joe, who I made the quilt for!

Success! This little quilt will be headed to its new nursery next week. :)

Here's a nice daytime pic from Gretchen. There were lots and lots of quilts!

I had to snap a picture of Gretchen's whimsical appliqued quilt. I am really drawn to the organic gumdrop shapes and orange/purple color combo.

And here's another 2012 finish, my Glass Half Full quilt.

Thanks so much to the IMQG ladies (Katie, Heather, Rachael + more) who organized and set up this fab show!

  13. Hi Lindsay, I just recently discovered your blog (I think I saw a comment Suzy made about one of your quilts on Facebook). You are so talented! I am new to sewing and right now working on my very first quilt (for the "quilts for kids" program). I absolutely love the glass half full quilt. Anyway, just wanted to leave a note and say hi. I felt like a weird stalker reading your blog without commenting since I regularly see you in person. :-)

  14. What an awesome idea and beautiful quilts! I love that it's a way of infusing quilting into the community instead of just holding an all out (expensive) quilt show. Thanks so much for sharing this!
