Today 14 ladies attended. Anne Bave brought in a prayer quilt top she had made. I checked to see if we had enough batting and backing fabric so that next week we can sandwich it and begin tying. Deb Johnson brought in the fish quilt she is making for her husband and sewed rows together. Ingrid Dispensa had given me a bag of wool yarn to give away so several ladies went home with bags of yarn. Today Joyce Laiosa, the children's librarian, gave me a web site: www.aghines.com. She is a picture book illustrator and a quilter. Her illlustrations are quilted. It is a wonderful web site with free patterns for the quilts in her books plus lots of extras: her journey as an illustrator and quilter, using quilts to teach geometry and/or design, plus a lot more. Take a look at it if you get a chance. It's like taking a virtual tour of a quilter/illustrator's life.
