    I was finally able to attend the UFO night at a somewhat local quilt shop. The name of the shop is The Quilting Quest. My friend and I had a great time. It was really nice to get together with ladies that were there for just the fun of quilting. It reminded me of when my Mom, Grandmother and I would get together. Please be patient while I upload some photos of the event.
    I had so much fun that I plan on going back next month. These are held the second Friday night of each month. If you live in the area please feel free to stop by.

    Glad you had a good time. Wish there was something here like that. Love the pic of the lady on the floor pinning her quilt.

    How cool is that! I could see getting some U.F.O.'s done there with all that fabric to inspire you. If you need something to go with your project, it's right there! WOW!

    Wow, that looks like a lot of fun

    Maybe you can set up a meet and greet there to find other quilting board members that belong here so all of you can have a cool sewing group

    That looks like so much fun. The quilt shop in Wickenburg started doing that just before I left AZ to come back to Washington in April. Hope they're still doing it when I get back there in October.

    The fabrics in the store you were in are gorgeous. My credit card would be in real trouble.

    Looks like a lot of fun. We have a group that meets every week at our LQS. I didn't join in this month due to some health issues but you can bet I will be there next month! Just love the gal on the floor pinning. That is such a hard position to be in...haha.
