Back again so soon!

That's right. Two posts in two weeks! Today I went to the NYC Metro Mod Guild meeting. It is always so inspiring. I showed my summer challenge quilt (a little bit late); a baby quilt using Thomas Knauer fabrics. I was happy to give it to the Sandy Quilt drive. 

It had been brought to my attention that the quilt design resembles a hurricane, and perhaps the recipient might not see any humor in the irony. But the guild concurred that the resemblance wasn't strong enough to worry about. 

This was also my first foray into straight line quilting. It was surprisingly easier than I had imagined! I think I'll do a lot more of this. 

Update: Here is a link to a photo of me showing the finished product at NYC Metro Mod guild meeting. Thanks for the photo Jess!


  1. It's beautiful! Such great movement. If it resembles a hurricane a little bit, it will only serve as a symbol of how the recipient overcame any difficulties, because they will, and they'll come back stronger.

    Sad to have missed the meeting, but hope to see you soon!

  2. Thanks Mary, We missed you at the meetings. Have a great holiday, hope to see you soon too!
