I joined another quilt guild!

Yes, it's happened, I didn't have enough quilting in my life, so I joined another quilt guild.  The guild is Y Knot Quilt?.  We meet every other Thursday at the Buckner, Kentucky YMCA.  This is where the young quilters can have babysitting and go to quilting.  The Y offers lots of tubes and toys and responsible watchers for the kids.  The maximum they can stay is 3 hours and guess what, that's how long quilting lasts.  

This quilt group is predominanty beginning quilters.  I don't mind this, because the pattern we are currently working on is easy.  I have so much fabric, that it's nice to have some sit and the machine and sew and not think too much about it.  Making something with your hands and seeing the completed top is a wonderful thing.  We are making a Christmas quilt pattern, and I've started 2 Christmas quilts I haven't finished, so the fabric is prepped and we traded squares for a charm quilt scrap effect.  

In the past this quilt group has made many charity quilts.  I happened to have some connections at Kosair and so they gladly gave me 7 quilts to deliver for distribution or possible sale to benefit the hospital.  I machine quilted this one and the rest were done while the quilt group was learning .   Jennifer went with me to deliver the quilts at the Cancer Research Center in downtown Louisville.   

It's always a good thing to suppliment your quilting and it's not uncommon for quilters, who recognize a good thing, to go out and find another group to join.
