Test..test..test.. Is this thing on?

I decided to jump in and start the Madison chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild. Things like this tend to happen when I have a free moment away from the kids....
If you are a Madison area resident interested in chatting and sewing with others who are interested learning and exploring non-traditional quilt techniques, please sign up and let's chat!
