14 ladies attended today. Marguerite brought in her finished completely hand-pieced, hand-quilted apple core quilt. We were all excited about the curved binding which really added to the quilt. Fran made a wall hanging from some geisha girl panels she had picked up. It was beautiful! Betty told us about the 4 patch posie quilt her granddaughter is making so we discussed that for awhile. Many of us would like to learn the technique. Pat brought in a top for a prayer quilt and Cathy's M. and Y. helped make a quilt sandwich of it. And Kathy O. diligently worked on our raffle quilt with some help from Agnes and I. It's getting there but hand quilting is slow. This weekend is the Delmar Q.U.I.L.T. show in Ravena. Several ladies are car-pooling to that on Saturday. Deb J. is off to Myrtle Beach on Thursday and I'm off to San Francisco tomorrow. We both have plans to check out the quilt shops while we're away. Kathy O. had made a trip to Alfred's and discovered the Alexander Henry fabrics. It's from 1997 but it's gorgeous! Fran had already told me about it and I had hit it the week before. It's well worth making the trip for beautiful fabric for $6 a yard.
