Baton Rouge MQG August meeting from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

It's already been over a week since the Baton Rouge MQG met! I don't know what happened to the rest of last week, but it surely sped right by. What didn't speed by was that darn BR traffic! I'm still in shock. It has to be bad when the on-ramp is clogged and that ramp is a mile away from the bouncy I-10 bridge. Read about that here. But no more whining about the trip. Let's enjoy the show part of show-and-tell.


  








Can you believe the talent? In addition to all of this eye candy ...

Baton Rouge MQG meeting from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Baton Rouge MQG - November from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

My second meeting of the BRMQG was most informative. These women are a special kind of inspirational. The business part of the meeting could be a company board meeting. The presentations are well in keeping with the theme and ideas of what modern quilts are. And the show and share is, well, see for yourself. Just don't ask who the quilters are. I haven't a clue. (I'll probably never learn their names since my "muddled" brain, Dr. Hargrave's term, struggled to remember names before the BD meds.)





One quilter-four quilts

One quilt-two gorgeous sides
And a ...
