April 2 Guild

April.  Exciting to know that another winter is almost behind us, but also a bit sad to see another guild year coming to a close.  Life rolls on.

We had a few show and tells today.  First up, we have Lori's One Block Wonder.  She bought the Jason Yenter fabric in Arizona during her winter getaway.  And beautifully quilted by Terry.

Next up is Jane's floral appliqué quilt.  She showed some of these blocks at our quilt tea.  All of her borders are now added and its ready for quilting.
The daisies are gorgeous!
The sunflowers
Olivia was visiting us from Clagary, AB and brought her Easter banner to show us.  It was hand drawn with fabric paints.
Christa brought us some cute Easter baking and they tasted just as good as they looked.  I could have eaten all of them.
Thanks, Christa!!
Finally, I finished my On a Jelly Roll quilt.  This is my guild quilt that I only work on at guild.  It was made from Me and My Sister's line of fabric called LOL.  It didn't call for the piano key border, but I added that and also the inner white border to make it double sized.  I love the way that the piano key border sets off the rest of the quilt.
This quilt now finishes at 80 by 90 and it is going to my niece out in Ottawa, ON.

Question of the day:  What's the next big step you need to take?  No idea!?!  I think that I am more of a "little steps" sort of girl!

Have a blessed Easter.

An Afternoon Tea Party

Our guild held an invitational tea party yesterday and what a fantastic afternoon it turned out to be.
Decorated with an Easter/Spring theme

As nice as a wedding!
Christa has expanded her quilting hobby into a home business selling fat backs and batting.  Give her a call if you are interested in buying from her.  The backings and battings are both very nice.

Our girls talked about their trip to Quilt Market in Houston and the classes they took.

Sorry about the terrible caption for the photos.  There was just too much information for me to remember.  I also didn't include all the photos that I took yesterday.  There was too many to post, so I tried to include one of each lady who showed something.  Thanks to all of the guild ladies who worked very hard to put this afternoon together and to each lady who came out to make this a fabulous afternoon.

Lastly, my two youngest boys played in their league final last night and took home the trophy.  Here are two photos of that.
