Our meeting Thursday night was a very good one and yielded soooo much eye candy! First members reported on a recent overnight quilting retreat. It sounded wonderful. Many thanks to Donna who organized it and Linda for her wonderful mystery project. Twelve members attended, but I'm betting there will be a good deal more at the next retreat! It's amazing how many very different quilts can be made from the same pattern. Enjoy the pictures!
Aren't they wonderful!
Next order of business was discussing the upcoming Festival of Trees. Our guild is donating a tree as well as a spool quilt made by the members. We will show the tree and quilt in a future post. Here is a picture of some of our members hard at work on the tree ornaments.
Now on to show and tell.
