14 ladies attended today. Pam, Marguerite, Marjorie and I all basted our next raffle quilt. We still have some edges that haven't been basted but I think we can go ahead and start quilting anytime. Our chief hand-quilter Marguerite is already got the wheels spinning in her head to figure out the quilting design. Thanks to all for helping baste. That's one of the least pleasant parts of quiltmaking. Louise Claflin is back from Florida again. Welcome Louise! I hope that next week she'll bring in some pictures of her award winning quilts. She does such beautiful and meticulous work. Her work is always an inspiration to us all. Marguerite brought in pictures from her European cruise plus a few pictures of her cute grandson Nathan carrying the suitcase. Her favorite part of the trip was Tunis because it was so different. All of her pictures were beautiful but those from Tunis with all of the mosaic walls and fancy painted doors were particularly remarkable. Remember, next week we will be meeting at 12:30 and having a potluck lunch for Betsy Hoffman who is moving to New Jersey soon. Bring whatever you want...we'll take our chances!
