Visit to Aurora Quilts

I just returned from a fun afternoon of shopping, errand running, and all the other stuff we cram into weekends. The first stop was Aurora Quilts. What a precious little shop it is. I met the owner's husband, as the owner was out at a workshop. Of course, I added to my stash while I was there. Got several fat quarters, one yard each of six materials, and a magazine. It was a very good place to shop. Now I have to to get these new fabrics washed and into the stash upstairs.

Block Drive for Japan

Good Morning members of the NOVA Modern Quilt Guild!

I feel quite awkard posting here, since I have not met many of you yet, so let me introduce myself quick.

My name is Kristy, I recently moved to the area from Minneapolis. I was a part of the Modern Quilt Guild there, and am very excited that there is a local guild here too!

Anyways, for the real reason I am posting, the Minneapolis Guild is hosting a block drive for Japan. All you need to do is make 10.5 inch Log Cabin block, any color(s), any style (wonky, traditional, whatever) timing is of the essence though, they want to receive blocks no later the the 8th of April. You can either mail them yourself, or get them to me by the 5th, so I can mail all them in one package on the 6th and hope they get there on time!

More information can be found on this blog post

I will send an email with all the same information, please contact me for my address if you are going to be making blocks.
