My First Mug Rug and Modern Quilt Guild meeting!

This past weekend I went to my first Modern Quilt Guild meeting! It was so much fun. I met some great people. This was one of the first meetings for the Music City chapter and it was great to get in a group as it was just starting. After about 10mins of chat I realized that these were my kinda people...hexies, white space, and designer names ran amok in the conversations.

Our generous sponsor Burgundy Buttons (a local fabric retailer) owned by Leah brought GOODIE BAGS! She's a rockstar. They were filled with samples of the Java fabric line designed by Deb Strain for Moda. This was a great line full of great brown and teal combos...Just perfect for mug rugs! Burgundy buttons has a great mug rug challenge going on right now! We all worked on our mug rugs for a few hours and chatted about quilts. Perfect for a cloudy/rainy Saturday. I finished mine on Sunday:

A baby quilt!

wow! How did a month go by between postings? Well I'm back on track. I just mailed out a baby quilt ....a little late for a baptism gift.

I used some of the dream on I got on sale just before christmas and the quilt came out super cute. Here are some action shots!

Colby and I went to the dog park in Huntsville, Al recently. It was a great park with a separte area for big dogs and little dogs...but it was kinda a mud pit typical for the season. When we got back to Nashville he needed a serious bath. He looked pretty pathetic. I think he's wondering here if the fantastic time he had in the mud was worth it:
