Mrs. Mary shared a couple of websites with us for purchasing fabric and embroidery packs at great prices: the Eleanor Burns Fabric Frenzy site and Embroidery Online.
We also chatted about a new quilt shop that Donna discovered in Lafayette called Lola Pink. Since we're going to visit the kids in Lafayette tomorrow, I am hoping to make a little detour to Lola Pink. Apparently it's quite close to one son's home. Now that would be convenient, don't you think?
We've made plans to attend a quilt show in Krotz Springs. Our guild was invited to visit and to show some our work. We've been "sister guilds" in that we support each other's shows and fundraisers and occasionally attend each other meetings. I'm pretty excited since I haven't attend a quilt show in a while.
Here are a few pictures of the quilt draped over my sofa. It's quilted but not completed. Mrs. Mary will square it up and sew on the binding, then she and Donna will hand finish it and trim the many threads I left on. This is the Christmas quilt that I showed close ups of in this post. We are raffling it in the next few months as a fundraiser for the guild.
What do you think? Won't it make a good fundraiser for our guild?
