I choose my new Layer cake...


And here is my first block!


I am so excited with a new adventure I am working on :

I am in the process of organizing a "Quilt Guild" in our Community. My goal is to have the first meeting in January so their are lots of preliminaries to work out. The response to the the local TV ad is certainly indicative there is an interest for this activity; which is sooooo exciting. The list of projects and fun adventures I am inspiring for the Guild, are endless and will all come about with friends coming together to enjoy a common interest. Quilting! This is what will keep the art of quilting alive ♥♥♥

  12. Oh that is so wonderful that you are starting a guild. It took me forever to become involved but now that I have I've learned so much and met some really wonderful people. It's really changing my life for the better. As my sister says whose been involved with many clubs - it doesn't matter if you are a great leader or not - just so long as you do it!
