This past year, I served as president of the New Mexico Quilter's Association. I'm not going to lie, there are some job perks. One of my personal favorites is that the ladies have a tradition of showing their appreciation by making a quilt for their leaders. I chose star blocks in red, pink, lime, aqua, and orange. Knowing the talent of the members, it comes as no surprise to me how beautiful it turned out. (Please excuse the accompanying dust ruffle.) It was quilted by Andra and set by Rosanne. Susan even bound it by hand. Hip Stich, our awesome local sewing lounge, generously donated the backing. I'm so lucky to have had the honor of working alongside such talented and generous women.
