I’m using my phone for this update post. My apologies if it doesn’t look as good as the rest of what I write.
Apparently, I was a chicken for nothing. I had Jen take my Dresden Plate Block to the Quilt Guild Meeting. I couldn’t. I was so scared they’d laugh or treat me unkindly (again) over my efforts. I had her say I was home with a sick child so I wouldn’t have to face their laughter or sneers (again).
Jen called after to tell me that they “loved it” and had never considered my idea before. They are keeping it, with the others, and voting for “Best Dresden Plate Idea” later tonight and will notify me via email afterwards.
