I did take the time to go to my new Quilt Guild - Needles and Friends - here in the Cache Valley and oh, boy, is it going to be a fun year!!!
I signed up for the Mystery Quilt and the Challange Quilt - which is where we put 2-3 yards of our own fabric in a bag and then the bag will go to someone else (that I won't know who) and they will make a small quilt using their creativity and my fabric!! Hmmmmmm, I think my fabric will come from Kaffe Fassett!!!
I also signed up for "Block Jo" where each month we will make a traditional block (given to us) out of Civil war prints. We can do up to 3 blocks but they all have to be with different fabrics and then at the next meeting, names are put in a pot and whose ever name is chosen gets all the blocks made for that month!! And since a quilter can only win once, there will be lots of winners!!
And finally and most excitedly, I joined up for the block of the month. My cute friend Sue (who is a master quilter with her own business - Summit Creek Quilts) is the one putting on the block of the month and this is what we are doing ~
Oh, my, it should be a challenge!! And she won't even let me cheat and get the pattern early so I can get started!! Oh, fine!!
Then after all the business of the day was done we had show and tell!! And if you had a quilt to show, you got a FQ!! Pretty cool, huh!!
Here are some of my favorites ~
It was a fun morning and I can't wait until my Studio downstairs is all set up so I can sew - I'm having withdrawaaaaaaaaaaaaaaals!!
