the back of Lili's quilt (finally!)
Also went to my first meeting of the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild this weekend. I'm still kind of overwhelmed - lots of ladies, noise of the machines and all the newness... but it was really fun. They seem like a very nice bunch of women - went out of their way to come say hi and talk to me. and lend me whatever I forgot to bring. I had to slam on my brakes for some traffic mishmosh on the way and my sewing machine crashed to the floor. I think it's OK. I hope it is - really don't have the time or the funds to be fixing it at the moment. Yikes! Then there was a slight moment of panic when I found the park district, but couldn't figure out where "building 4" was. A nice officer pointed the way to "the knitting club". I didn't correct the knitting thing because I was laughing at how helpful he was compared to a city cop. We made these reusable shopping bags.
