Spring Meeting...

The theme of my quilt guild spring meeting was a British Tea...there were beautiful settings on the tables.

lots of food...including lots of sandwiches, some shortbread cookies, orange scones, and lemon tarts with clotted cream...

fun hats...

Quilters learning the royal wave...

and of courser great quilts....


I gave a program on English Paperpiecing which included both history, some examples both vintage and newly made, and a quick demonstration.

We gathered 24 children's quilts that were started on National Quilt day in March, finished by quilters at home during April, and now will be donated to the local Ronald McDonald House this month!

  Fun day....

One time, my little quilt group went to a tea room that only served small groups of people and by reservation. It was a fund raising effort for a children's home. It was a delightful setting and the food delicious. Yours was on a larger scale and such a good idea.
The moose quilt is very good.
