    The gals from my grams' quilting bee and a friend came over today for a quilting party.
    We put one of my quilts in the frame, rolled it up so it could fit into the house, and did a little quilting.
    It was a hoot!

    We really did.
    I looked around a few times and noticed that everyone was smiling.

    Skeat, and everyone,
    It would be great if we were all able to quilt together!

    I served fruity sun teas, crackers, cookies, and a carrot cake.
    Then as the afternoon went on, margaritas and wine!

    I had to push the snacks on everyone... their hands were busy quilting.

    The gal in #25 is the cutest, sweetest gal. She was my grams' best quilting friend. They'd quilted together, once a week for years before grams' passed.

    This is the group that my grams finally let me sew with (after 8 years or so of making quilt tops). about 2 years ago, grams' let me put one of my tops in the guild's frame and they quilted it for me (windmill quilt). Since grams passed, then, they've done one more for me. (red zig zag).

    Those are really nice!

    You tell that nice lady that I want her to adopt me!
    I'll bet she is the sweetest thing, but am sure she's full of trouble too! Just look at that smile! :) :) :)

    I am so dumb!!! I was surprised to see them all handquilting. My first thought was that it was a rack to be used with the machine. It looks like so much fun. I wish I had quilting friends near by.

    I did had to go back and see that ladie on pic 25. She looks like anyone's grandma. I also wanted to go give her a hug.

    those pics really made me miss my mom. she and I shopped for material, helped her cut some pieces and roll up the quilts on the frame. Was working at the time so she did all the hand quilting. Yes, us kids do have one each - she's been gone for over 16 yrs and I think that is why I so enjoy quilting - keeping in touch. Thanks for the pics :)
