23 people attended on Tuesday. The big surprise of the day was Skip and Sharon (Sharon used to come to Nimblefingers), who are moving to Florida, bringing in a load of quilting supplies, including a quilt frame! Free stuff brings out the viciousness of the ladies: they pounce like a pack of vultures! I'm just glad no one got hurt! Next week we hope to divvy up some of the batting and I'll be looking for a home for the frame. I think I'm going to have to come up with a plan for when they bring in their fabric. I want to make sure everyone gets a chance at it plus I want to save some for our stash here. I'm thinking about it... The other highlight of the afternoon was Marguerite's quilt which she finished quilting this year. It is a variation of the Star Fling pattern. It is quite beautiful! I also brought in a table runner of a Kaffe Fassett pattern in Kaffe Fassett fabric. It's for a challenge in another group and the pattern came from the book: Skinny Quilts & Table Runners From Today's Top Designers. I suggested that we pick a simple pattern from this book and that we each make the pattern in our own fabrics, with our own embellishments. We're going to try it and see how it goes.
