Caught in the Modern Quilt Group Web

In December I was perusing flickr, a favorite past time of mine, and I found in a thread a mention of local modern quilt groups. The discussion encouraged people to see if there was a group in there area. I have been very jealous of the groups I've seen through Jacquie and Victoria and thought what the hey I'm going to look. I'm so glad I did, because I found one and they were about to have a sew in. In fact, it was last Saturday and I got to go. Left hubby in charge of making sure the kids got their jobs done and I went to play. And play I did. I made these spiderweb blocks I was so thrilled that the fabric that I had ordered from Jackie at Canton Village had arrived because I wanted it for the stars in my spiderweb. Jackie has the greatest fabric. Lucky me I got it on sale. I am so excited for this quilt.
I forgot my camera, shame on me, I know. But if you would like to check out pics from the sew in Kati and Kayli took some great ones. Please ignore the one of me front and center in the group shot. Talk about a cheesey smile. Oh well.
On a brighter note I was featured on Be @ Home (I don't know why it won't let me link it every time I try it just puts in this addresss but it's the link so just click on it.)http://pocketchange.become.com/2011/01/blog-review-ems-scrapbag.html. Go check it out if you have a minute.
