my guild ROCKS!

I'm a proud member of The Chicago Modern Quilt Guild.  They know that I'm expecting (any day now!!!) so at our last meeting they presented me with a quilt they made together. It was a total surprise--I had no idea they had planned something. Various people contributed blocks, Ebony did an AMAZING job with the quilting, Jen, Beth, and Sarah pieced the blocks together, and Sarah did the binding.  I love love love it.  It is so bright and happy. I know our baby will love it too.

Ebony quilted each person's name into the block that they made, including the ones on the back.

See how she made each one radiate out like a sunburst? Very cool.

Seriously, if you need someone to do your long-arm quilting, Ebony is your woman!


  1. Mary, I'm so glad you blogged about this quilt - it is the coolest baby quilt I have ever seen and I'm proud to be one of the contributors. You love it? Fabulous!

  2. Oh that is so awesome of your guild to do that for you, such a lovely quilt too.

  3. Congratulations. What a beautiful baby quilt. I can't wait to see your baby pics!
