Attending a meeting of the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild has been on my list of things I’d like to do for a long time. They meet about 40 min away and reality is, it’s hard to get away sometimes, as nice as that sounds. Last Saturday I finally made it! This time it was a sewing Saturday. Bring your sewing machine and food to share and hang out. I was so excited to be able to go!
Lots of beautiful inspiration. Here is Leigh with her latest Hello Betty quilt top. (Dang it – sorry about the eyes closed picture, Leigh! But the quilt was too awesome not to show.)
Every time I go to some kind of sewing get-together I always tend to take way less photographs than I’d intended. But hey, at least I got a picture of my food: Colleen’s Cranberry Bliss Bars (to die for) and Pink’s (my un-photographed traveling companion) cookies. I exercised great self-control (well, not in the food department obviously) in resisting pilfering Ann-Marie’s Katie Jump Rope quilt.
So if you get the chance to sew with a quilt guild – I highly recommend it. Because chances are, there are going to be fun people and good food there. Just be prepared to not actually sew as much as you think you will.
