    Our guild provided a small quilt show at our local Senior Center today. We had dozens and dozens of visitors and had such a wonderful time! The visitors were full of stories of their mother's and grandmother's quilting and many still had their family quilts - that would make some at least 100 years old. I sure enjoyed the stories :-)

    Beautiful quilts. Quilting draws everybody together with stories. That is what is great about quilt shows.

    Beautiful quilts. You know sometimes a small quilt show is much better then the larger ones. You have more time to sit and chat and learn from one another. Thanks for sharing.
