At our DC Modern Quilt Guild sewing day Sunday there were lots of quilters and lots of beautiful quilts in progress and a few completed to show and tell. I got a few photos (here) and had a very good time visiting and working with the many members as the group grows. It was hosted by a Fraternity House Mother! Lovely Anna blogs at Hoot'n Hollar who got permission to use the house while the boys were on Spring Break for us two days over the St. Patrick's day weekend. Anna's Frat house was a great place to meet and we all enjoyed our day of quilting. I came home with a big hand full of scraps from a couple of quilters who were clearing out their scrap bins. They had some beautiful fabrics I have never see in my fabric store. I took some photos of my mostly masculine scraps laid out when I got home. Looking forward to playing with these and I wanted to say thanks to the people who generously opened up their bins for me to dig through and pick out some cools designs.

Melinda who blogs as the Quirky Granola Girl previewed a really popular quilt Sunday at DC Modern Quilt Guild meeting. I got a couple bad photos of her showing. She blogged about the project recently of houses. It's her own international community, quilted little houses that represent her friends around the world.
