Tampa MQG Members decided to work on a charity quilt early this year! Our guild created a quilt for the Love Quilt Project. Their base design for the quilt asked to create a log cabin pattern. The center squares were drawn by children from Cardinal Elementary in Springfield, Virgina. Our guild decided to create a rainbow design, everyone bringing in bright scarps to use. We were able to construct the entire top in a meeting and one member offered to quilt for us. It is now on its way to Virgina, and soon after to Africa.
Our April meeting took us outside before the full on Florida heat sets in. We took a field trip to the USF Botanical Gardens. We have decided to have a new guild challenge, with inspiration from the gardens. Our June meeting will be full of color as we see our members inspirations come to fabric.
