Well, I've gone and done it again --- added more onto that quilting plate of mine but this is a good thing. I elected as one of my goals for the upcoming year that I would join a quilters guild and participate actively. Tonight I took that first step and attended a meeting with the Triad Modern Quilters Guild and determined that this is the place that I could see myself growing as a person and a quilter. Everyone was very open, sharing and welcoming. We had a great speaker tonight and several great show and tell projects were brought in. One thing that is going to be great about this guild is the charity work that they participate in -- making quilts for those in need. Well I had been wanting to participate in something like this as well so after the meeting I grabbed a scrap bundle to start on my first project. There were several groupings to choose from but this one large group appeared to be having avoidance issues. This picture illustrates probably why .... at first glance it's huge a 4x4x4 cube of fabric but I felt that this had great possibility. even though it was a brick of blocks that i had no idea what it contained.
Cna't wait for the next meetingto get ot meet more wonderful quilters in the area. Blogging has linked me to a few members already including Lee Monroe http://www.maychappell.com who is hosting a great giveaway at this time. It's early in the morning so time to try and get some rest -- gotta have energy to quilt another day.
