I had a fun quilty weekend! Saturday was judging day for our guild show and I was one of about 8 volunteers. About 45 quilts were judged in a variety of categories. It was fascinating to hear the judge's comments.
On Sunday, Karen, Julia and I drove up to the Mod Conn meeting. You can see lots more pictures in Jackie's post. Here are this month's blue blocks with some apple/lime/honeydew/yellow-green to coordinate. My block is the one on the bottom with the row of geese.
I made an orange block on Saturday night, but didn't have a teal fabric to coordinate with it. I had to buy one at the shop when I got there. I haven't bought teal fabric since 1994!
Heide is an amazing young modern quilter! And she's friends with Kate Spain and Jennifer Paganelli! Too cool.
In non-quilty, family news...
Julia was in a play called Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992. It is a moving piece with first hand accounts of the LA riots. The kids appreciated learning more about this event that took place before they were born. Julia portrayed Rev. Tom Choi, a 6' tall, Asian minister. She was awesome!
Pete's band, Attractive Dan, played at an open mic night and closed out the evening. They played a couple of original songs and Pete did some cool stuff with timpani mallets on the drum set.
I just remembered that I should link up to Sew Modern Monday!
I have another post coming with a mini finish. See you later!
