Hello again! The last few months have been quite the experience, first of all I have a new job working at Home Depot now. I'm loving the part-time, it gives me time for the second happening which is that we are starting a quilt pattern business! I have taken a few business classes and am in the midst of pulling together a business plan. We received our business license a couple weeks ago and that was a really exciting day, made it very real for us. I also approached a local quilt shop about one of the patterns I have in the works and the owner was VERY excited about it which is really encouraging.
In other news, there has been quilting happening!

|All the blocks together and how I decided I like them arranged. Now I just need to decide what color I want to use for the frames around the "photos". This was the end of February.|
|In early April the guild hosted a symposium for anyone to attend and learn about quilting. I shared the joy of hexi's and had a lot of interest. It's amazing how many people have never tried English Paper Piecing.|
|In May we (the guild) had the baby quilt sew-in and this is the top Sarah finished while she was there.|
|I put borders on a panel that I bought at Quiltmania and worked on free-motion quilting for the day. I love how it turned out.|
|Pat worked on this batik Sticks and Stones (MSQC tutorial here) and it is going to be gorgeous!|
|My cousin graduated high school this year and I made her a quillow. It is the first I have made, and I learned a lot of how I will do it differently in the future.|
|Belle is helping me create a banner for our new business, stay tuned for more information coming soon!|
