TOO Much Fun…

Kate invited me along to her quilt group this morning, and what a fun group they are.  A variety of ages, a variety of interests, and very welcoming.  Our hostess was Linda whose entire house is a quilting treasure trove…here’s a brief tour…she collects buttons…

  1. ohhhh if I lived around there I would definitely try to fish an invite from you to this group…looks like so much fun! Buttons!!

  2. This DOES look like TOO much fun. And very inspiring! I really like the selvage quilt. How very clever. Keep enjoying, Bonnie!

  3. You had me at the word quilt. I love, love, love quilts and the art of quilting. I agree, it looks like so much fun. I taught my daughter how to sew and her first quilt was the hexagon too. Love the use of her strips for gift wrap, great idea. Thanks for sharing!!
