Cotton Quilters' Guild meeting from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

The Cotton Quilters met on our regular first Monday of the month. Since it's October, president Margaret Ducote asked that everyone bring in their fall/Halloween themed quilts. Apparently I'm one in the minority since I have only one of those made years ago. Here are a few of them:

As you can see, everyone has been wonderfully busy. Some of these pieces were made much earlier than the past month, but enjoyed seeing them all the same. As Mrs. Mary said, "You can't see a quilt too many times."

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Swirls from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

 Welcome to my world which, for the next week, will consist mostly of tracking TWO hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico. Right now every weather channel is predicting that both will make landfall on the Louisiana coast, possibly near New Orleans. Then hello, central Louisiana, which is where my home sits.

We're not overly concerned for ourselves. Generally by the time a hurricane arrives, it has worn itself out in the south. It has to battle lots of towns, trees, and swamps.

Outdoor furniture, trees, trailers, and anything else not nailed down is up for a swirling, churning ride ...
