Gwinnett County Quilt Guild!
This was my view just before I spoke to the guild. Big group! And they were so nice and very talented.
I had my displays set up beside the stage. These visuals really help me to explain some of my points as I speak.
And on the other side of the stage I had my piles of quilts to share - each one has a lesson or story to go along with it.
I spoke "off the cuff" with no notes. Before I knew it I'd been speaking 45 minutes, non-stop, and I think they all enjoyed it. One of the ladies told me that the time flew by while I spoke; seems she's heard other speakers in which time slowed down? Haha! After I spoke there was a break in the meeting and they had an opportunity to buy my books. And BUY they did!
Tomorrow I'll share photos from my Hexie Mania class!
Today I'm unpacking and getting back into my normal routine. I have a quilt guild meeting tonight and lunch with a friend tomorrow. Oh, and I have lots of hexies to stitch - they are calling my name! I brought home a boat load of fabric I purchased at Intown Quilters Monday afternoon when I arrived in the Atlanta area - so now I can start working on the wedding quilt, too! So many projects! And that's a good thing!
