The LA Modern Quilt Guild just celebrated it's third anniversary! I am proud to say that I have been a member since the very first meeting.
And here we all are, three years later!
So big we had to take a panoramic shot! iOS5 to the rescue!
Every year we do an anniversary scrap swap, where participants bring in a ziploc bag of scraps, take home someone else's scraps and make their partner something out of them, only adding one additional fabric. Sadly, I wasn't able to make it to the meeting where we swapped baggies so I couldn't participate but...I never shared what I made for last year's anniversary!
I made this quilt for Nicole Ramirez last year. The stripes are all made from her scraps and I added the gray background fabric. I used the same fabric for the back, trying to play by the rules and intended to use it for the binding too. But by the time I finished the whole thing I thought, "F*** the rules", I'd put so much time in, I didn't want to put on some stinky old gray binding. So I cheated and added the polka dots. I didn't get in trouble.
