|Elle Irby gets a first look at her new baby quilt made of members donated blocks and assembled in this modern design by Jessie Aller|
Since I joined this big group of quilters as the only guy last September, I find I always learn something and have a great time visiting and sharing my work with this young group of very talented quilters. Yesterday's meeting was no exception only we got an extra treat when former president Elle brought along her latest project to show which she and her husband started about 11 months ago named Miles. What a tiny package of sweetness! She got a nice surprise too when the group quilt that current president Jessie gave her the gift from the group she organized only weeks before the birth of Miles. It's a very modern aqua and chocolate brown baby quilt.

I am happy to announce that my Orange Explains It quilt will be in an art exhibition opening Friday August 23rd 5-9 PM continuing until September 15th, 2013. Its a big group show called ART ROMP curated by Molly Ruppert at the Anacostia Arts Center 1231 Good Hope Road. SE, Washington, DC. A host of Washington DC area artists are in the show and it should be a great good time and site to see. $5 Parking in the garage across the street.
