Portland Modern Quilt Guild July Meeting

Barbara, Jenn and I were all lucky, we got to attend the Portland Modern Quilt Guild’s July meeting. It was held downtown. Since I am a suburbanite it’s always fun to venture into downtown. I think those people are crazy for living there, but in a small way I envy them.

There were about 40 of us in a room at the art college. It was pretty warm, but we didn’t seem to mind. Christina gave a really good speech about how to make hexagons. Have you guys been to Christina’s blog The Sometimes Crafter? I LOVE her blog, like a lot. I was so excited to meet her. So, hexagons were the big topic of the night. I’ve seen them all over blogland right? But… I didn’t dare try them, you know why… I need another addiction like I need another hole in my head. Well, it was fun, I am smitten, they are so adorable.
Here are the few I did. They took a picture of me doing the “show and tell” I enjoyed seeing everybody’s work, talk about inspiring, the wheels can’t stop turning in my head. I hope I can go to these meetings regularly.

Hi, I found your blog through the side bar of "A Few Scraps" blog.
I like the stash-busting projects you're doing, and I love that your blog page contains LOTS of posts before going to another page. I usually just check out the first page of a new blog, and yours had LOTS of fun photos !

Have fun with those hexagons......they hold a million possibilities !

Me too! Are you going to the August meeting? I'm hoping to see you there. ^^ BTW they changed the room so we should have a bit more space (fingers crossed).
