Great Time at the Quilt In of Stafford Piecemakers Quilt Guild!
On Saturday we had our 15th annual Quilt In for the Stafford Piecemakers Quilt Guild.
We have it at a church and the atmosphere is super energized and positive! This year the guild decided to display the quilts from previous Quilt Guild Presidents. They were just beautiful.
Below - is a picture of my new friend Kim! The best thing about these outtings is the friendships that are formed. She is new to the guild, but has been quilting for many years.
I wasn't terribly productive (or I kinda was...) I like to use what I have and I ended up there with a bag of charity Round Robin quilts that needed borders put on by me. I only had a few little pieces of fabric to choose from for each quilt (because I didn't bring extra fabric : )...so I had to make do. When I quilt like this I feel very close to quilters of old...who didn't have qyilt shops close to go get fabric - and had to make do with what they had around... Here is what my border looks like and it took me ALL day : D.
Yay!!! I love you ladies!!!! Can't wait until next year!
