Guild friends

I have belonged to a local guild for over two years now.  The Millrise Quilt Guild. We are a group of 60 some ladies, meeting twice a month.  I have enjoyed the meetings and get togethers they offer.  I especially like the demonstrations and trunk shows.   However, it is the knowledge that is within our guild that I love the most.

For instance, my friend Kim (as opposed to my son's girlfriend Kim) from Chatterbox Quilts is a wonderful resource for embroidery patterns, stuffy
 patterns, quilt patterns and instructional videos.  She is a pattern designer and great embroiderer.  She has her own website:
and online store

  In addition, you can find her on YouTube with great videos about setting up a studio, or the ins and outs of fabric and more.  

And we can't forget about Facebook too. 

She has been published in Quilt Connections and Irish Quilting magazines.   

She offers free patterns such as these:

Flourishing Hearts

Vintage Hearts

The best part for me, she is my friend and we get together now and then to stitch and bounce ideas back and forth.   So go check out what she has to offer.  She is always coming out with something new. 

 If you stop by her blog/Facebook tell her Lee sent you!

p.s. I had Kim's permission to post about her and use her photos


  1. How nice to have such a great source right close at hand! I have one of those, too, but she doesn't have a blog :(.

  2. Thanks for the lovely post, Lee! I so enjoy our quilting get togethers and must credit you for keeping me motivated and on track with my projects - and introducing me to all those new quilty blogs about scrap quilting:)


Thanks for stopping to view my blog. Please leave me a comment and tell me what you think of my projects.
