Even though I've already missed the first meeting of the year, I've decided to join the Nanaimo Quilters' Guild. I've missed being a part of a guild the past two years. I read their newsletter online and one of the monthly program events is a nine-patch swap where you make and submit 12 identical nine-patch blocks in a pre-determined colourway. I got busy and made all my blocks for the whole year (dark blue, turquoise, purple, green, rose, & burgundy, all with cream). Now all I have to to do is figure out what I'm going to make next year with all my swapped blocks!
