I have just moved to a new state, Arkansas. North west Arkansas has two separate quilt guilds, a modern guild and a regular guild. Baring an extreme weather event I hope to go to my first meeting of the Modern Quilt Guild next Tuesday.

So here is my question. Since it is my first meeting is it polite to bring a quilt for show and tell or not? As this is my first meeting I will be attending as a guest, meaning I have not paid yearly membership dues. Politeness is a big deal here in the south.

If it is okay to bring a show and tell quilt to my very first meeting should I bring my best work or something more approachable? I don't want to look like a show off and make the wrong first impression.

Thanks for any input.
