I had a little bit of an advantage on this block. Irene & I are in the same hive for the Stash Bee and she was Queen there for April. I knew she planned on using the same block for both bees, so I was able to make the May block last month.
I mailed this last week, so I’m hoping it’s already made it to Irene.
Irene and I got to meet in person in February! Here is photographic proof! I’m on the far left and Irene is in the light blue shirt. The other 2 ladies are Flora (far right) and Sana (between me & Irene), both friends of Irene’s from her guild.
We both live in North Carolina, though we’re about 3 hours from each other. Irene had an extra bed at her Airbnb for QuiltCon, and she invited me to join her and her friends. I had never met any of them in person, but both friends are librarians and we know some of the same people. I had a ton of fun with them and am so grateful that Irene offered me the opportunity. It’s truly great to get to meet Quilty friends in person! I also met Paige while there, though we were only able to chat for a few minutes.
I can’t wait to see your finished quilt, Irene! I hope it looks beautiful in your newly redone bedroom!
