NY Metro Modern Quilters is a group I joined earlier this year, when they were new. I got to two meetings and haven't been able to make any of the meetings since then, for various reasons. I am bummed because I love the enthusiasm, the young quilters who are having fun experimenting, and the break in my routine. They have already made a group quilt and this month, everybody was to bring a monochromatic block based on the color saffron or cheddar or whatever you want to call it.
Tonight, I sewed a block together and had a lovely time playing, but forgot about the monochromatic part. So here is my therapy block that I am not sending because I need to make another one that IS monochromatic.
The wild turkeys are out in full force - although not as much force as those horrible black birds. A propos of this subject... I got an e-mail from Lynn Kunz suggesting that my fear of birds might be a good subject for some work. Uh - no. Actually, three years ago, when Jane Davila and Elin Waterston were writing a book, they invited me to participate in an exchange of blackbird blocks, some of which would go into the book. My first instinct was to say NO. But then I thought I should force myself to do it and express my feelings about birds. It didn't help, but here were the resulting little quilts.
It is after 1:am and I am too tired to write more, but when I am awake I will comment on Terry J-D's post about juried shows. Interesting post. I should make a list of things I want to post about because by the time I get a round tuit, I've forgotten what I wanted to talk about. 'Nite.
