"The Quilting Bee" and Many Thanks!

I'm back from a fantastic (if steamy) weekend at the Hamilton Quilters Guild Show: Quilts in Bloom. Many thanks to Leigh Forrest and her legion of volunteers for organizing a fantastic show that was inspiring and a whole lot of fun. I met all sorts of warm, friendly folks and came home brimming with ideas and inspiration.

One of the highlights of the weekend was when Mayor Fred Eisenberger made a presentation to the Guild's founding members for years of community service!

We also came home with armloads of goodies made by Carole and Gary of Just Plane Knotty including some terrific ruler racks for your cutting tables!

One more thing...I was trolling around the internet today and found the funniest quilting bee on the EE Schenck website:
