Yesterday's guild meeting was even better than expected!
Not only did we have an awesome meeting with excellent attendance including quite a few guests, but I got presents!

The guild presented me (and the other officers) with a very sweet card and a pretty bag full of fat quarters from the members.  I didn't get a chance to truly delve into the bag of fabrics until this morning, and I love the variety of fabrics.  I am touched that included in the gorgeous collection of fat quarters, was a beautiful piece of fabric from guild member Heather who recently moved out of state.

Additionally, the guild gave me a generous gift certificate to The Sewing Studio where we hold our monthly meetings, and I used the gift for this jelly roll of Amy Butler Lark and a stack of fat quarters.  



Kathryn took this picture to show my empty cubby once I handed over the presidential OMQG paperwork, etc.  Well, the cubby now displays my fabric gifts ;-)  The Orlando Modern Quilt Guild and its members rock!  

Speaking of sweeeeeet, look what literally just arrived in my mailbox!!! 
I love the cute picture of Amanda Jean and Cheryl shown on the inside back cover;-)
I've only had a chance so far to just peek inside, but trust me, I know what book I'll be reading today.


  1. Obviously you were appreciated, my dear!

    I cannot wait to go attend a MQG meeting as "just a member" and no longer then president. MY big fear is come September, no one will be willing to take over!

  2. That cubby looks so fun and colorful. You might need to fill it up a little more! Let me know how the book is.

  3. That is so awesome! I love your gifts. :-)

    I got my book the other day, too, and I can't wait to read it. I've looked at it some, and I can't wait to do a book review!

  4. For quilters to willingly part with such lovely fabric shows how much they appreciated and loved you! LOL

    Happy Retirement!
