Tuesday evening I gave the program for the Mid-Del Stitchin' Sisters monthly meeting. They are still a fairly small guild, but very active. Just this month members turned in about 30 baby quilts for charity and a large stack of blocks to make lap quilts for hospital patients. They also participated in a nickel  swap. Itchin' to be Stitchin' Quilt Shop from Chandler was there to vend and the guild provided refreshments at the break.
This was the first guild program I have done since my book came out. Because I have so many samples on loan to quilt shops I didn't have as many quilts to show as I used to. I filled in the gaps by making a couple of new fractures and by showing the large stack of fabric I still have waiting for future fractures. This left me wanting to come home and ignore all the long arm quilting I have waiting for my customers so that I can concentrate on sewing up that big pile. Alas, common sense won out and now I must go return to my work.
 For those of you who don't already know, a nickel is a five inch square of fabric.
