Country Quilters Quilt Guild yesterday.........

We couldn't meet at our usual place which is North Arkansas Electric Cooperative so the First Baptist Church let us in....Amazing, Grace!  They have a HUGE room as you can see.  This is Iris who shops for us and gets us great discounts on quilting and sewing supplies.

This is Pat who bought this quilt from an "up and coming" quilt artist but Pat does beautiful work herself.

Here is our BELOVED (and I mean that!) President, Margaret who made this gorgeous Christmas quilt that I did not get a picture of!  DRAT BATWOMAN!  I think she did the ones on that table too.  She was my first (and only) teacher along with our Vice - President, Jenny.....they are great teachers and I learned so much from them and still do.  That's Joann in the chair and she is the head of the other group I attend....Fit n' Sew.

This is Linda...our "Hostess with the Mostest"....she does the best door prizes and drawings and there are her beautiful cockscomb flowers that I have seeds from if anyone wants any.  There's our official insignia too...hanging on the wall.  Have insignia will travel!  I missed pictures of so many great quilts because I was doing the library and the Opportunity Quilt tickets.  I will post our quilt we are raffling off tomorrow.....GORGEOUS!  There's still time to buy your tickets!  $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00.   It goes to replenish our coffers for the guild.
