Saturday Quilt Day

Last Saturday one member of our quilt guild opened her home to let us have a sewing day. She has a lovely day-light basement which was perfect, albeit a teensy bit crowded. We had a great time, cutting and sewing. We worked more on our Sunflower Paper Pieced quilt, by Judy Niemeyer. This quilt will be given to a local community center which is then raffled off. The proceeds from the raffle benefit the Senior Center at which we meet every other week. 'A' is making a Double Wedding Ring quilt for her parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary. 'A' is making the wonderful green and purple "woven" quilt - all done by means of fabric selection. Very exact and quite stunning. Ronda (and I) are making a quilt made of large half-square triangles, the pattern created by the use of lights and darks.

As you will notice, we didn't stint on the lunch potluck and quite enjoyed ourselves. It was a great, productive day.
