First Quilt Group Meeting

OK, so it didn't over as big as I was hoping, but the 4 of us that were there had a good time. We just talked quilting and ideas for future meetings and things to do w/the group. Which I hope will grow with time. Maybe the weather had something to do with it. It was kind of snowing and very cold. But that didn't stop 80 something year old Meryl from showing up!!! She's made lots of quilts! She's made one for each of her 23 grandkids and 18 great grandkids. That's a LOT!! But she's even made many more than that.

I came down this morning and this is what the kitchen table looked like. Remnants of last nights fun! Well, I had fun. We're going to have our next meeting on February 21st. Everyone has an assignment to bring someone new and we'll have doubled our attendance!! I brought up some of the magazines and quilt books I have downstairs for perusal. I figure why not share. I have TONS!!! One of the friends showed her Grandmother's Flower Garden she's working on, and I had to get out mine and show her how I've been doing it. I think I've converted her.
Happy QUilTinG - Lauri!
