Small Friendship Group Meeting, Another Project and Quilt Show
Last night, I went to my small group meeting. I call it small as it is one of about 14 or 15 friendship groups that are part of the Dallas Quilt Guild. I have been going to this group since 1992 and I have learned so much from these ladies. We have ummmm, about 40 women in our group. The group is made up of absolute beginners to blue ribbon winners. We have a wide range of talent in our group. It is so much fun to be around these ladies. We met at one of the quilt shops in our area last night. We normally meet at a church during the year, but summer months we get to meet at LQS's to shop and get demos from those shops. We have demos or programs every month in our meeting but not shopping. This is a bonus. Last night we swapped floral fabrics. 16 of us swapped fabrics. Each person had to put 4 pieces of different floral fabrics in 16 bags. We then exchanged the bags. We will be making friendships stars and an alternate block that is the single irish chain block. The quilt is very sweet looking and should be pretty quick and easy to do. Another project, but this one should not take too long to do. It has quick sewing shortcuts. I will take pictures and post these when I do them. It won't be this weekend as I already have too many things to do. One of those is going to a quilt show in Mesquite, Tx. Mesquite is a suburb of Dallas and the Mesquite Guild has a show each year. Small guild and small show but some very lovely quilts and some great quilters! The show doesn't have alot of vendors this year because it is the same weekend as Martha Pullen. Believe me, she be pullen the vendors away for that one! I will take some pics and post them of the quilts in the show. Got to go for now, til next time....
