I invited the members of the Elgin Piecemakers and some other friends and most said they would love to come! A few could not come because they were on vacation.
My husband helped to bring all the fabric into the house. We set it up in the dining room and we were all ready when everyone got here.
The party started just as a huge rainstorm started. I had to provide towels at the door for people to dry off! It poured!!! We really needed the rain, but it would have been nice if it had waited another 15 minutes before starting!
We started with some show and tell and introductions. Here are some quilts that were displayed on my "design floor" this evening...
Jacqui's purple quilt--a wedding gift.
Roxene made this for a wedding gift--lucky bride and groom!
Amalia's "Quartered Squares"--taught by Pam last October.
Shirley's "Fire Escape"
Heather made this quilt for a baby boy.
This one is called "Frank". Joanne made this Frank Lloyd Wright quilt for her brother's king sized bed.
Pat P's paper piecing project
Pam taught this class at London Friendship Quilters' Guild last October.
"Through the Trees"
Pam made this quilt between Christmas and New Year's this past year.
Once show and tell was over, it was time for the fabric feeding frenzy!
Look at all those Yummy Solids!
Lots of eye candy!
After shopping, we all indulged in "enhancing our Fat Quarters"... Thanks to Karen and Joanne for providing our feast!
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
And Peach and Strawberry Semifreddo
At the end of the night, everyone left happy, with their bags a bit heavier, and their wallets a bit lighter! Here is my stash enhancement:
I need to do some sewing...
Thanks everyone for making this such a fun evening! Some of the proceeds of the evening will be going towards backing fabric for the Elgin Piecemakers' Charity quilts!
