Today marks the start of the OrlandoMQG's fourth year! Whoo hoo! I paid my dues and got a cool coffee mug with our logo.
Our block of the month for March is the Garden Fence made with modern grays and yellows. I'm looking forward to making next month's shoo fly block too.

Many members participated in the Madrona Road Challenge and created beautiful blocks and quilts. I made a mini quilt for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative by machine piecing tiny hexagons (as learned in my QuiltCon class) then machine appliquéing them to a solid background pieced in the text fabric.
Several guild members dined alfresco at a nearby restaurant after the meeting. The food and company were wonderful. After our QuiltCon adventure, we were missing eating meals together ;-)
Forgot to show the pincushion I received from LAMQG member Licet in a QuiltCon swap. The pinsies were purchased from this etsy shop.
When I left for QuiltCon, my sewing room (aka The Lab) was a disaster. For some strange reason, it was still a disaster when I returned! I took a picture of the room which even shocked my sister. After that, I decided something had to be done.
I pulled out the package of comic book boards I had purchased after seeing That Girl That Quilt's neat and tidy sewing room, and over the weekend I spent some time using Jennifer's fabric folding method in an effort to tame the fabric mess.
You won't believe how quickly I used up that package of comic book boards. I had to make an emergency run to the local comic book shop for more. You think this will enough to organize my stash?

I'm going to be in big trouble if it isn't ;-)
Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday. Thanks for stopping by,
