I'm not sure how those of you who give presentations to guilds do it. I gave a presentation to a local guild, the Quilting Queens this evening - my first ever and they were SO nice to me. I spoke a little about my quilting and about HeartStrings and took a lot of quilts with me both mine and many of the HeartStrings tops I've been finishing up this last few weeks.
I was completely surprised when they each held up HeartStrings blocks they'd made and presented them to me - I had to come home, lay them out quickly and snap a photo to share.
Isn't this the cutest fabric? They used this heart print for their centers and Cynthia gave me the rest of the fabric to use in finishing the quilt.
Cynthia, who contacted me about speaking was wonderful and made me feel very comfortable. As I watched their meeting, I was really impressed with how organized they are and how much education they do. I saw some feather star blocks from a class, a beautiful mystery quilt, a quilted bag, and several other really pretty quilts during their show and tell.
