I became an 'exhibitor', received a gift, and stitched some 'love'

My guild, OKC Modern Quilt Guild, exhibited at the local Winter Quilt show -- and, I was there. Actually all I did was help dismantle the amazing display of quilts by guild members.  But, I did get my very own name tag, which was really cool.   

All the members volunteering at the quilt show received a 'thank you' gift made by a Guild Member (thanks Shir!!)   Such a cute and clever idea.  I just might need to copy this for gifts this year !

I took a deep breath and did my first paper-piecing this month - a LOVE block to honor Valentine's Day.  I won't say it was easy, but with my dyslexic brain, the process sort of made sense.  Of course, if you look close enough you can see an extra piece of background fabric that was needed (lower left corner).  Trying to paper-piece while watching a 'Walking Dead' marathon is not a good thing!

Now to do something with this block: 
mini-quilt, a pillow, the center block of a baby quilt -- lots of choices.
