Then and now!

That was then…

The Los Angeles Modern Quilt Guild

…and this is now!

LA MQG 1 Year Anniversary!

The LA Modern Quilt Guild’s first meeting and our 1st anniversary meeting!  We are going strong.  This past meeting was such a ball and there was just such a sense of community, excitement and fun in the air.  Always takes me forever to fall asleep after meetings this great – they are just so inspiring and energizing!

That great swap I mentioned in my last post?  Check out what I got from Leah!


The cutest freakin’ owl ever!!  I love him and have named him Horace.

    Horace is adorable! Is he a pincushion? I love his little wings.

    You started something amazing, that’s for sure! Horace is a honey of a hoot.

    The Owl is made from a “Melly and Me” pattern, called Hooty and Tweet, I would recognize him anywhere (Melly is a friend of mine).

    I like your way of arranging and quilting very much and will follow it :-)
    You are very lucky, to have such a great comunity of modern quilters,
    In Germany, unfortunately, they seem to be widely spreaded.
    So thanks to the www. !

    Wow! That’s amazing. I can’t wait for when I move in a couple years. I’m hoping that it’ll end up close to a MQG. :)

    I have that exact same feeling of not being able to sleep because my head is so full of great ideas! Sometimes I wish we had meetings in the morning so I could have that feeling all day!

    Congratulations! I am a member of the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild and I love it! We are just getting started, but it’s a great group of people! I can never sleep after meetings either – too much excitement and inspiration …

    That is awesome! We’re growing in Cincinnati, but not quite at that speed. Keep up the great work, and the inspiration!
