April 8th Quilting

Post date: May 27, 2014 12:07:17 AM

Dear Quilters,

YEA! M. has returned from Florida, and we sure welcome her back. YES! She brought a 3 piggies, embroidered center panel and another BEAUTIFUL, grey/red quilt she's sewn for a family gift! Really NO surprise, for she has extra hours in her days.

It was another busy day of quilting with 22 present! But regretfully that loud burst of thunder and rain hastened an end to our lunch time.

Thanks to P. for her initiative in purchasing the barn and farm animal pattern (which we'd "LOST"). S. and I got the signature wedding quilt squares laid out, and I have it about 1/2 sewn. Thanks for ALL who made suggestions and helped select material for the sashing today. N. was busy this week and we appreciate her hand-quilting the "Dapper Dan" quilt! E. took a Sunbonnet Sue home to quilt.

Correction to our discussion about the prospects of the NEW Whole Foods coming to Fayetteville. I said, "The Monday 40/29 News reported - NO negotiations have been confirmed." Tuesday's 40/29 News reported confirmation of Whole Foods moving to College Street, across from Lewis Ford. However, today's AR Democratic Gazette didn't quite sound like a done deal?!?!?!

With many quilting bees, I promise to have one or maybe even two more quilt frames up, with quilts ready for stitching next week. M~O~R~E quilts, space to work, and extra, elbow room for YOU! Think Spring and look forward to seeing PANSIES! You'll understand that 'pun' next week…
