It was wonderful to see my quilty friends and to show off the quilts that I've made since my last appearance four or five months ago. I've missed so much--voting and new officers, interesting speakers, and some fun new activities. Ah well, a girl's got to work.

Today Allison, from Aunt Nell's Quilt Shop, gave a great talk on string quilts. Although I've made a few of those, I found her tips pretty interesting, such as starching to help keep bias cuts from stretching and several different layouts. Later in the meeting Pam added to Allison's string quilts presentation with a few more ideas and tips.
And, of course, we had a show and tell. A couple of the quilts that I showed are above, and our talented veep showed this gorgeous French knot quilt that she made for a friend years ago.

All in all, I had a great time. If you haven't joined a guild yet, rush on over to Cottonport on the first Monday of each month. We'd love to have you (and I'll see you in June).
