Our little Ventura Modern Quilt Guild has been busy collecting blocks and making tops, quilting and binding them, labeling and assigning to different recipients. We were lucky to secure an empty office in a building with rent charged of only $1, where we can store all the quilts and fabric and give members their cars and homes back, including mine! Our Communications chair is a longarm quilter and my sister Kathy jumped at the chance to play during a sew in at her house recently. We are just beginning to get quilts made from the Perikomen Valley blocks and this is one of them.
Isn't it pretty? Kathy turned out to be "a natural", and I received a message that she is "hooked". I wish that either one of us had the money and space for a longarm machine! I worked at home on two quilts that just needed binding sewn down. These were donated tops, I believe, that other guild members quilted and attached binding to.
