Good morning quilters!!

It's Monday.

Happy Quilting!

Carla, Lawana, and Carol sewed strings while …
… Brenda, Ebba, Karen, (Judy and CC not pictured) and I hand quilted.
Karen is a new member and brought along some of her fiber art for show and tell. I love her use of bright colors
and improvisational designing.

Paul’s mom had a birthday this week. We ...
