  4. Hi, Karen!

    That table topper is so cute.

    Hey, we have a new quilt guild that started in Vegas. It's called "Modern Quilt Guild." This is a national guild with chapters in cities around the country. Last night I went to the first meeting at Quiltique in Henderson. There were 15 to 20 ladies there, including the quilting blogger Camille Roskelley. There was a nice age range of quilters too --from those in their 20s and up. The group was very excited to be part of this new guild and I could tell there was a lot of energy in the room. I'm looking forward to our next meeting (the end of February).
