Congratulations to all our members who participated in the Boise Basin Quilt show. The modern quilts were very impressive! Thanks to all that submitted quilts, volunteered at the Boise Modern Quilt Guild table and worked to make our banner quilt.
The quilt show was our debut for the banner quilt and it looked awesome! It was the perfect way to advertise the spirit of our guild and everyone’s talents. If you didn’t have a chance to check it out at the show, we will have it at our October Sew Day.
Below are some pictures of some of the quilts that were on display.

March’s Sew Day was a lot of fun! We had a longer session to sew and talk and share our projects. We had a brief update about this summer’s Bogus Basin Quilt Guild Quilt Show that we are invited as guest guild to. We hope to have a lot of submissions from our guild members. Our goal is to enter at least 50 quilts. Boise Modern Quilt Guild members are allowed to enter up to two quilts for free, for either judging or exhibit only. (Additional quilts are $3 each.) They have even created a new Modern quilt category this year! You can read more about the particulars on our Quilt Show FAQ page.
We had a handful of new faces join us and it was fun to meet and talk with everyone! We also built and gathered 32 blocks for our Guild’s banner quilt. We are half way to our goal of 64! If you have built more blocks to add to our stack, bring them to the April Sew Day. We’ll have a longer Sew Day that day as well, to build more banner blocks. We hope to start building the center part and arrange the quilt sometime in May.

I am sorry I don’t remember everyone’s names! But the quilts were fabulous to see and get inspiration from. Thanks, everyone, for bringing your projects to share.
