First Meeting / Erstes Treffen

Our very first meeting was held on 27 February 2013 at the Nadel und Faden quilt shop in Bad Cannstatt, with approx. 10 ladies. Much of the time was spent talking about the Modern Quilting movement that is spreading from America and discussing what makes quilts "modern" and what distinguishes them from traditional quilts and art quilts, etc. We also talked about our ideas about the future of the group. Members had brought along some modern quilting books to look at, and Elaine handed out lots of shirting materials for us to use for our first "challenge". We look forward to seeing the results in our show and tell at the next meeting!

Unser Gründungstreffen fand am 27.2.2013 bei bei Nadel und Faden in Bad Cannstatt statt, mit ca. 10 Damen. Es gab längere Diskussionen über die Modern Quilting-Bewegung, die in den Vereinigten Staaten ihren Ursprung hat: Was macht einen Quilt zu einem "modernen" Quilt? Was unterscheidet moderne Quilts von traditionellen und "Artquilts", usw. Über unsere Vorstellungen für die Zukunft der Gruppe haben wir auch gesprochen. Es gab viele Modern Quilting-Bücher zu bestaunen. Elaine hatte einen Koffer voller Hemdenstoffe dabei, die sie für unseren ersten "Challenge" verteilte. Auf die Ergebnisse freuen wir uns jetzt schon!
