Nov 16th. Quilters Day Out saw a great turn out of Busy Quilters!

Show & Tell was great with Jocelyn and Mary F showing us their quilt tops they made when they participated in the "Mystery Quilt" making at Fall Retreat this year. They are awesome! The same and yet oh so different!
*Judy showed us her kitty wall hangings! They are so sweet!
*Coralee showed us her "Sun Mt. Trees Quilt she made and quilted she called it "Ode to Papa" in memory of her Dad ...very inspiring!

Coralee and Dorothy  attended "International Quilt Festival" in Houston Texas, and they gave an great presentation on what they did, what they saw, and their overall impression of it!  IT WAS BIG! "TEXAS STYLE"  and very inspiring! They are both willing to go again, and would love to have more company from our area join them!
