St. Joseph, Missouri Piece Corp Guild
I was the speaker last night for a WONDERFUL guild in St. Joseph, Missouri www.piececorpquiltersguild.com. This is one happening group. When it came time for the show and tell for the block of the month usually 4 - 5 quilters get up to show their block. Half of the guild is doing this block of the month and they were there front and center to show them off. I was AMAZED! Carl Hentsch the only man in the guild designed this years block of the month. He is coming out with his own book and does beautiful quilts. Then if this wasn't enough to get my attention....Hazel Meade shows me her own creation using my Quilt Dive fabric. I designed this fabric a few years back for Moda. I love how she designed the quilt for the diva panels to be in rooms in a house. SO CREATIVE! Hazel is also this years president of the Heartland Quilt Guild. It was a fun evening!
I now want to go back with my husband for a day trip. St. Joseph is where the Pony Express began and Jesse James ended. It was recently named the #1 Top Western Town by True West Magazine. I also heard they have numerous antique shops. My kind of town! www.stjomo.com
