I joined the local quilt guild



Hi everyone, I hope you are all having a great day. I worked today. I had a good day, just busy. Last night I went to my first quilt guild meeting. I decided to join the guild. There was a guest speaker at the meeting. Her name is Helen Fujiki. She's from Toronto, Ontario and makes amazingly beautiful Japanese inspired quilts. They were really remarkable. You should go to her website and see more of her work. Here's the link. I got to visit with Michelle from Dresden Quilter. It was really nice to see her again. I showed my Mini quilt and my Beatrix Potter quilt for the show and tell. I was really nervous. But they were well received.

I mailed out my Good Ol' Summertime mini quilt to my swap partner today. I took a few pictures of the finished quilt. I hope you like it. I had a hard time letting it go because it was my best quilting so far. I'm really proud of how well it turned out. I really hope my partner likes it.

Happy Stitching!!

Happy sewing!
