At the beginning of the year, I joined together with a few of my quilting friends and we started a modern quilting guild in my hometown of Wilkesboro, NC. It's been so fun to meet up with locals who are as enthusiastic as I am about sewing (even though I'm a newbie to this whole quilting thing).
Every month at our meetings we have a sit-n-sew and work on a block together. I'm putting together a block for next month and I went with something that was reminiscent of our name and geographic location, the Blue Ridge Mountains. It's a simple block that uses a gradient of green/blues. I turned mine into a pillow and added very subtle embroidery stitching.
