A Lovely Day

Had a truly lovely day yesterday. Mom, Bev, and I went to a quilt show sponsored by the Tara Quilt Guild. I thought that this was my first quilt show in 20+ years of making quilty things, but Bev reminded me that I had gone with her to one in Indian Springs, many years ago. However, this time, I had a much better idea what I was looking at!

We met some wonderful ladies and one in particular taught us oodles about hand quilting and answered questions. She was working on a quilt in a small frame right inside the door. What a wealth of information!

I have made quilts since 1988 (yikes!), but as I have worked alone, I haven't increased my skill level much. Bev and Mom help me and we bounce ideas off of each other, but I still have never made many technical improvements to my skill level. It might be time to learn how to do a bit more.

I made a fun discovery! A lady at church is a member of the guild. Can't wait to see her and tell her that I saw her displayed quilt!

All in all, a fun day. Good friends, good food (lunch at Mellow Mushroom), good times. I learned lots and hopefully will be able to work out joining the guild. Hope I can talk Mom and Bev into it too!
