Last Meeting and Vote

I hope you can get a group together, it's so much fun to have a small sewing bee. Such lovely quilts being made by your guild members :0)

Wow, that's a guild with a capital "G". Lovely quilts made with love too.
I should search for a guild to join. I think I'd like to meet a few more people that quilt.
The pot luck suppers...ah the memories of youth!

Looks like a ton of fun! Those quilts are amazing. I wish I could find a guild around me to join. Enjoy your summer "off"! :)
