A break from HST"S

on  my quilt "Words To Live By" 
Paper piecing the HST's does help time wise.  Sew them in strips 
Cut them 
Remove the paper , iron and  open them 
cut the tails off, and
 Voilà!  the basket is full. Now it's sew time......  the borders...
Stay tuned 

The break came when I was invited to a luncheon in Bridgetown at the guild there. What a beautiful event ...  
Member Clara 
The food.. quilters not only sew but they cook also and when you find quilters you find good food! 
 Meeting new friends and
 sharing quilting ideas.. member Charmène 
 How wonderful to meet up with a high school friend !!
 so good to see Celeste 
 Cute little bags were on every table for every one to have one
 Darlene d'Eon from Needle Pulling Thread was there for our shopping pleasure 

Let the "Show and Tell "begin... 
 I did not write the names of the owners of these lovely projects and for the life of me I would not be able to remember  them all without written notes.   
 Gorgeous table topper 
 This one I know the owner. It belongs to member of the guild Clara who came with me. 
 Isn't this beautiful 
 and this one... wow!
 the colors are so vibrant
 Another one I know well, "Beatle Bag"  by member Charmène 
 This one we discussed at our table at length wondering if the fabric was silk? But no it is cotton. 
 The socialization 
 The stars are out 
Lovely casserole carriers 
 Can't forget the little ones
 Mini quilts in progress
 A lovely bag... 
 More stars by a new comer 
 10º ruler project 
Something for all seasons

 So there it is a good time spent with quilting friends.

Now we get ready for our big week-end... one more sleep and Karen comes to Clare. Tomorrow we have the "Greet and Meet" and Saturday we have the Mrs Pugley's Emporium and the workshop with Karen Neary

I repeat ... stay tuned! 

A la prohaine
