Too excited to sleep

Tonight was the first meeting of the Portland Modern Quilt Guild, brought about by the efforts of Elizabeth Hartman (Oh, Fransson!). We came from all over the area: north, south, east, west -- approximately 25 of us. We shared our passion for quilting, our fabric addictions, and our hopes that we are never cured. We shared ideas, inspiration, laughter, and projects from zippered pouches to pillows to quilts of every shape, size, and use. We talked about husbands who don't quite get it, making tiny design walls for daughters, the things we learned from our mothers and grandmothers, the things we've learned on our own along the way, and the things we hope to do in the future. Lots of sharing. More laughter. And plenty of eye candy:

Yes -- I'm definitely too excited to sleep.

  1. I just discovered this blog post and had to comment. I can completely relate with not being able to sleep after a modern quilt guild meeting. I'm starting the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild and I've had insomnia after both of our meetings. It's too exciting!
