This month, the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild celebrated its second anniversary. Well do I remember that first meeting - it was exhilarating, fun, and full of inspiration. It still is!
We usually have some kind of monthly block challenge, and this month, we riffed off the Quilt Con Block Challenge and used the VMQG logo colours to create 12½" by whatever blocks.

My block comprises several smaller free-pieced "plus" blocks.
When I presented it at Show and Tell, I said that those plus signs symbolized all that belonging to VMQG has added to my life: friends, laughter, inspiration. Definitely "on the plus side" of things.
