It was a whirlwind week last week, with Alissa coming to Kansas City. Yup, Alissa, of Handmade by Alissa, came to town and I can report she's not just an internet sensation, she's a real girl! She spoke at the KC MQG on Thursday night and was such a hit. I heard from loads of folks after the meeting how inspired they were to sew. We learned more about her and of course got to see her quilts.
Alissa's first book will be coming out soon and it was so great to see the cover quilt in person as well as her new work. (No pictures of that...it's a secret!) I'm so proud to be a part of the Block Party book. I've seen the inside too and it's so great!
Alissa stayed for the weekend and got a little taste of the Kansas countryside, Sarah's fabrics in Lawrence, and I got to know her better. We talked quilting and lots of other stuff late into the night, every night!
This weekend is one more example of how the Modern Quilt guild has changed my life. Thanks for coming, Alissa! It was a ball!!
