This weekend I made another set of these placemats for a friend's birthday. I neglected to get a photo of hers before I packed them up and sent them. Hers are in orange/brown and gold and the pieced strip is a little wider (her request). These are a great way to use up scraps and fabulous to practice free motion quilting.
Last week was crazy busy. I did a guild presentation/trunk show on Tuesday night to the Kansas Capital Quilters Guild in Topeka. I had a ball and I think they did too. It was so much fun showing and talking about quilts. They're a big guild and pretty traditional, but they welcomed me with open arms. Thanks ladies!
Thursday night was the third meeting of the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild. 70...count em...70 folks packed into Harper's Fabrics and Quilts. It was such a great meeting! That's me leading the group. We're making lots of progress getting organized. We had a fantastic book share where we broke into 4 groups, shared out fav books and even some projects made or inspired by those books. Show and tell with this group is always inspiring. The picture was taken by Shea, our VP.
My studio is in chaos...packing up 30 or so quilts for a trunk show takes a lot of time and energy..i need to get it all put away and things cleaned and organized. I have lots of sewing to do!
