(12) Kathy chooses theme #12 on May 15, 2013, for July, 2013's quilt

Can you believe that now we have ourselves a schedule through two years from this coming July! I find that both amazing and exciting.  Are any or all of you now working on your Harmony quilts?  I've got some ideas that I think are good, but so far, they just reside in my brain, though I did find some fabric yesterday that would be perfect for one of these.  I am suspecting about myself that I might actually make 2 or 3 Harmony quilts and then choose my favorite one for September 15's BIG REVEAL.

Grace and peace to all!

From Alice: Now We are Twelve!

Mavens, I've got some good news!  We have a 12th member!  Her name is Kathy and she's brand new to our quilt guild and in fact, brand new to Texas.  She comes originally from Alaska.  She introduced herself to us at guild as an art quilter and was eager to find other art quilters in our guild.  She showed us three of her quilts.

I discussed her with Rita, and she agreed with me that Kathy would be great for our Material Mavens group.  I emailed her to invite her, and she's now looked over our blog and that of the original Twelvers, and she is most excited to join us.

I'll wait and let her tell you more about herself, when she writes her first post!
