Secondly, I went to my first guild meeting on Monday and was pleased to finally meet a blog friend of mine - Flo, of Butterfly Quilting! Very exciting and fun! (Ps - she's a good hugger. :-)
The guild gave me homework. I have to make a name tag/signature block to wear at meetings. We're allowed to use the block provided or to use our own fabric, as long as we stick to the format. So, as I have been delighting a tiny piecing lately, I grabbed my crumb bag and my rotary cutter and went to town. I haven't been able to sew them together yet but here's the preview of the top pieces and the back.
Speaking of guilds, people are talking of starting up a modern quilt guild in town here and I'm so excited I could squeal a little bit. In fact, I did. A little bit. So, yeah, I'm all over that! You can read more about it here. PS - Periwinkle Quilting is my local and I love it there.
