I was finally able to connect with and join my local modern quilt guild in October. This made me very happy since the only other quilters I know are part of the blogging/online community. Of course, on the day of their October monthly meeting my little guy was home sick with strep throat so I couldn't attend but I was able to sign up for an upcoming retreat that is scheduled for this coming weekend. SQUEAL!!!!.
An interesting thing that they do at each meeting is have a block lottery. A specific block is selected each month and for each block you make, you get your name put into a drawing. If your name is randomly selected, you win all of the blocks made. For the November lottery, the Raspberry Kiss block was chosen so I made 2 of them.
Now let's hope I can attend November's meeting!
