Northern LA Quilt Guild and Spring Breeze

I attended my first quilt guild meeting tonight, ever. It was a lot of fun. Everyone was very welcoming. They took care of business first and asked me to introduce myself. Then they had show and tell of a round robin they started. Everyone showed their center medallion and I was assured I would have plenty of time to catch up. They asked me to draw the next row and it was ninepatch. Guess I better get busy!

They wrapped the meeting up with general show and tell. I had two sections of my Spring Breeze to show. There were some very pretty things but one I HAD to take a picture of. It is a completed Garden Twist. I took this picture my buddy Michele. Hope it will inspire her.



Once I got home I went to work on my quilt. Here is a pic of my completed sections. I am short two pinwheels. I will try to cut out the rest of my quilt tomorrow and see what I can get assembled.

You've made friends-- wonderful. When I go home to Louisiana from the UP of Michigan. I notice different quilt styles and people have different tastes than what is typical up here. Was it just like "home" to you or were there differences? Plans for the weekend? Next week should be a short week for you... and a long weekend back to TX.

Mornin' Swooze...was wonderful meeting you last night at the guild meeting and was glad you shared your work in progress. Love your red and black combo. I too must make catchup on the round robin. We'll see.

Safe traveling this weekend.

Guild meetings are so much fun and lots of inspiration to get your things done. The Garden Twist quilt is simply beautiful! Looks very complicated. And your pinwheel quilt is equally beautiful in design and fabrics.
