Discovered the Treasure Coast MQG while in FL

So after the renovation work began to drive me crazy I decided to look for some fun for me while the hubby deemed to continue painting, etc. I was quite excited to discover that in Vero Beach nearby they had a MQG that was holding their first Quilt:Beach*  a stitch,learn,see,shop,meet and play day.
Lucky for me I was able to even sign up in time to be scheduled into a class or two.
After discovering the groups advertisement I noticed they had put out a call for "60" sampler challenge, submissions were to be included in a permanent installation.
Well this tweaked my interest and gave me a reason to create. Lucky me I had packed my little Janome in hopes of completing some quilting during our month in FL and up to then the only sewing I had done was on the guest room curtains.
So the following photos will show my process of creativity for a "60"s art quilt and then a peek into the Cathedral Window class I was able to attend.
Was a wonderful break from the renovation work I had had enough of. Was time to enjoy FL.

The great news is I know there is an active MQ guild nearby the condo for any future visits to FL.
