Deborah Moebes of Whipstitch came to talk about Modern Quilting. The first thing she said was that she hoped we enjoyed the presentation, because her husband doesn't think she's funny. (Spoiler alert: he's wrong.)

Deborah shared a slide show about what is generally meant by "modern" quilting, and how the online community both influences and defines it.

This was a great program because it included my three requirements - informative, funny, and lots of quilts. Note that the January meeting had none of these things. I'm just sayin'.

Of course, my fellow guild members knew instantly that I would have a huge quilt crush on Deborah; indeed, I was following her on both Facebook and Twitter while she was still talking.

Now my wish is to go to a class, retreat, or conference with Deborah. QuiltCon anyone? A girl can dream, right?
