February's Guest Speaker: Libs Elliott



What do you do when Libs Elliott comes to your guild?  You party like a rock star! 
Libs shared a bit about her history, her quilt journey, and her technology-based approach to designing quilts. She even shared a sneak peek at her upcoming line with Andover Fabrics. 



She taught her Embrace the Chaos workshop ON HER BIRTHDAY for our guild and here are a few pics:
