Friday five

1. Do you belong to a quilting guild?
Yes, although I haven't been going since my mother's been sick. I have always belonged to the guild near my mother's house (about 30 miles away) rather than the guild in my town. I don't want to give up my membership in that guild because I like it, but I need to join the guild here, too.

2. What is something you have sewn that is non-quilty?
In recent years I have not really sewn anything non-quilty. I used to make some of my own clothes when I was in high school (in the 70s, this was!) but I didn't always like the way they came out so I decided it was a waste of effort. I did make my own wedding dress, though. I really need to scan a picture.

3. Share a quilty link.
Cia's Palette - really lovely fabric

4. Civil war prints or 30's Repro prints?
Civil war (or 19th century repros in general, really). I made this quilt from a swap of repro blocks (although we weren't really obsessive about it so some of them may just be vaguely-repro-looking things!) I will use individual 30s fabrics mixed in with other things but I have never made anything exclusively out of 30s fabric. (On ther other hand, I am big on the scrappy look in general, so usually very few things I make use just one kind of fabric.)

5. Any weekend quilt plans?
Probably not - my husband is running the marathon in Houston so that will take up most of the weekend. Maybe quilt guild on Monday, if I get in the mood. (I was just looking at the speaker's website and I almost wish I had signed up for the workshop. She does some nice stuff!)
