It’s Saturday, and where has the time gone? Earlier in the week, I had a giveaway for my upcoming quilt along and boy that was fun! You can check out the winners here and learn more about the quilt along, which starts March 16th, by clicking here.
Since then, I’ve been working on several projects and putting the finishing touches on my Stepping Stones pattern. I’ve been so busy that I forgot to tell you all about my nice visit to the Common Threads Quilt Guild!
I presented a trunk show of my quilts including several new patterns, and the guild members couldn’t have been more gracious. I love visiting different quilt guilds because I make new friends, see new ideas, and walk away refreshed and renewed for my love of quilting. My favorite part of any quilt meeting is Show and Tell, and at Common Threads they showed some very lovely quilts. Next time I’ll have to remember bring my zoom lens and to focus more quickly. Show and tell goes fast and I’m usually admiring the quilts when I should be taking pictures <grin>!
For their block of the month, members are invited to sew up the block in red, blue, and white. The blocks are then made into Quilts of Valor quilts. Isn’t that a lovely idea? And look how many members joined in! I love how charitable and giving quilters are with their time and talent.
Thank you, Common Threads, for inviting me to come visit. I had a wonderful time. Special shout out to Martha Higdon who met me at the door and got me all set up and comfy. Thanks Martha—you’re awesome!
I share my blog posts with these awesome linky parties!
