    Hi everyone

    I went to my County Quilt Club Tea Party tonight and we was to bring a Apron (Tonight's Theme was Aprons) and our very own Tea Cup. I brought my Tea Cup but not Apron because mine got ruined in my first Apt Fire. I could've borrowed my friend's Apron but I didn't think about it.

    I had so much fun and it was a very enjoyable evening tonight. I learned so much by going to the Guild Meetings once a month.

    Two local ladies has a Fabric Shop....well the members of the Quilt Club and the Wednesday Night Quilt Group got together without these two ladies who owns a Fabric Shop and they all got together and made a huge quilt out of Lady Bug Fabric. It is so beautiful. When some of the members presented it tonight at the Tea Party they were in shocked...and they were speechless. I am going to take my camera with me to the Fabric Shop and get a picture of this beautiful quilt. There is a Saying in the middle of this Quilt and it is embroidered too.

    Hopefully tomorrow I can get my rows of squares sewed together and than I'm going to take my first block to the Fabric Shop and make sure that I did it right sometime next week.

    Our Tea Party lasted for almost three hours tonight...we had Tea, Coffee, Punch, Cookies for our refreshments.

    I learned tonight how to make Hexagons and paper pieced them. That might be a future project for me too.

    Sometime next week I am hoping to start on another Scrappy Quilt for my County Quilting Club cause it has to be done by December so I need to get started on this sometime very soon.

    When I get it started I'll be taking photos too. It is going to be made out of Christmas Material and the size is going to be 12 x 12.

    I know how to cut my material now, and I know how to sew the squares together now too and I know how to find my 1/4 inch seam line too.

    Well I just wanted to tell how much fun I had at my County Quilt Club Tea Party.

    What a privilege to live where there's such a fun group to be a part of! If I were not still working I could join a quilt group here, but they meet at 10 AM...won't work for me...

    Thanks for all of the lovely comments....they mean so much to me and it also gives me encouragement too and not be so scared of making a quilt.
