I know that this quilt looks good, but dang (!)- I am just not that great at paper piecing. I used close to a yard of the white background starry print- getting those angles to go just right does not come easily for me.
Our little group of sewing friends has decided to participate in a little birthday swap this year, where we'll make and send small gifts to each other during everyone's birthday months. Should be fun and more meaningful than doing this with a bunch of strangers.
I am definitely not very involved in attending the FRMQG (their meetings are always on Saturday morning and their meeting place keeps getting closer and closer to Denver and further from Springs) but I am glad I have found "my people" through the guild and plan to attend the spring retreat.
