    Several of us board members had a fun day yesterday getting to know each other. We saw some beautiful quilts, works in progress and purses. We talked & talked, exchanged information and had lots of laughs. We went to lunch, visited Nancy's Quilt Shop, and exchanged gifts. Most important, we made new friends. I was happy to host the meeting. I will now try to post some pictures.

    Great shots, shamrock! Love that one of Betty! :-D And look at her quilt! That was my first social quilters day--fun!!

One of DeeBooper's is posted, but I'd love to see the other again... Wildyard has one I'm looking forward to seeing done... so many others...hey Heid--you need to show yours!! :thumbup:

    What a fun day ... and looks like some great show and tells!

    Friendship Stars? ... did you each take one for the draw? And what were the specifics given for the making of them? What a nice way to remember the day.

    Great seeing the pictures. It sounds like you all had a wonderful time. Maybe if you do it again I can attend-never read about it until last night. I guess I am still a day late and a dollar short...lol.

    Thanks for posting the pictures Shamrock. I had a great time putting faces to names. I'll check my pictures and see if I have any to add. Thanks again for hosting the gathering.

    For those who are interested I'm the one on the left holding my bug jar quilt.

    A nswers---Each board member was asked (opt) to make a friendship star block in their favorite color with a cream background. Those who did make one, put their names in the jar and we picked a name. We later exchanged gifts from each other to take home. The names over the picture are in order. Helen was in beween so I added her to the gals in front. Nancy's shop is on Main St, Waterloo, NY

    It was a lot of fun! Hope we do it again and have more folks attend. Fall might be a good time and it is so pretty in that area with the changing colors on the trees!

    Thanks so much for hosting, shamrock! Lots of fun meeting everyone and seeing everyone's projects. I guess the fabric shopping didn't hurt any, either! :)

    I just wanted to mention, I did not buy one yard of fabric--not a fat quarter. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Oh--thanks for the additional photos, DeeBooper!!! Those were some of the pieces I wanted to see! Yay!

    It was great to see some of your quilts and the real people behind them. They are beautiful. Glad you had a good day.
