I enjoyed the last meeting. I thought the quilts shown were beautiful. A few of us were talking about the quilts and we wondered if our senior members realize how they have improved over the years. That got me thinking, a few years back we asked our members to bring in one of the first quilts they made and one of the most current ones. We displayed all of them and noted the difference. It would be fun to do it again and would show our beginning quilters what they could look forward to.
The refreshments added to the fun. The food was delicious and healthy.
I thought the assortment of different salads was outstanding and I tasted each and every one of them. The dessert rounded out the lunch.
The best part of the day was staying and helping out on community quilts. I found myself ironing for the three people I sat with, and had a great time. I was sitting with Linda Lever, Phyllis Salt and Ellen Sherman. I enjoyed spending the afternoon with them and when it was time to wrap it up, I found I didn't want to go home.
I would like to suggest that the next time we have an afternoon planned that you spend a couple of hours with your fellow quilters an have some fun and at the same time doing charitable work.
Of course we missed Gerry Tucker but I am sure she is enjoying her vacation.
Have a great Fourth of July,
