17 ladies attended today. We were a lively bunch today. Lew Schedlbauer, the "Quiltsmith", brought in some scrap batting. It was gone in about 5 minutes. But we had some nice show and tell we could share with him. Fran was binding a quilt she made some time ago and didn't like so just let the top be for awhile until she finally decided to have it quilted. Everyone agreed that it was a very nice quilt and deserved to be liked by its maker. Then Jeanne K. had a black and green zigzag quilt she was binding. It was all made of half-square triangles--very easy to make but it looks complicated. It was beautiful. Then Cathy M. was sewing the binding on one of her Flying Geese Saturday morning samplers. We are going to have a really great show this year! Everyone's doing such nice work! Marie awed us all with her crocheted tablecloth she is working on. Marie says she likes to do hard projects that no one else wants to do. That's exactly what she does and they are all just amazing! Pat O'R was binding her appliqued flower quilt, Agnes was binding her hidden 9-patch 2 quilt--lots of binding going on. Ethel has started a new cross-stitch pattern. She says she has several going already so I guess she just likes to switch projects periodically. Today was another good eatin' day: Marie brought in an apple cake and Agnes brought in an orange juice cake. Both were scrumptious! These ladies sure can cook!
