I May Be a Quilt Guild Slut!

I love to quilt! I belong to the American Quilters Society, The Mohawk Valley Quilters Club in NY, the Tidewater Quilters Guild, and the Modern Quilt Guild…does that make me a guild slut? I don’t know, but I sure am having fun!

Last Saturday at the Modern Quilt Guild in Virginia Beach I gave my One Block Wonder presentation. I had a great time. Then those of us that chose to, participated in a 18″ pillow cover exchange. As coincidence would have it, I chose Miyoko’s name and she chose mine. Miyoko wanted bright oranges and yellows. I asked for grey and lime green. Miyoko loved what I made her, but I got the best of the deal. My pillow cover spells my name in Japanese. I will treasure this pillow cover. I don’t know whether to use it or frame it!

I’ve been busy getting quilt labels done for customer’s Christmas Quilts. Today I’m feeling nostalgic, just goofing around (I did manage to mop the kitchen floor). I got out my Singer handcrank. I don’t know how they manage to sew with one hand and crank with the other, I’m just not that coordinated! But, she sure runs smooth, a thing of beauty!
