It was another birthday celebration for the expatchers and as luck would have it, two of our expats were back in town. Yes, it was their birthday month--Camilla was in from Mexico with an interesting story about her car accident on the way to the airport for her departure to the states. This accident, no fault of her own, put her off schedule by a day. Debby, who has moved to'foreign' Louisiana was also in attendance. We were missing our other March birthday gal, Chris, who resides in Australia. A shout out to Chris!! Happy Birthday!!
Several of the gals brought along their finished flannel blankets, which will be sent on their way to the welcoming arms of new mothers and their babies. The gals have certainly been busy. In the upstairs studio of our hostess, we viewed Judy's design wall where she is working on an Easter gift for her two young grandchildren. She is using this pattern from Block Party She had several of the patterns pieced and ready to assemble. She was planning to add a chalkcloth as a button on feature. The paper pieced flower garden blocks are not part of this block party quilt but a continuing journey in her handwork.
In the dining room, Judy had hung this wonderful quilt that she had recently quilted for a friend, who had pieced together a wonderful collection of sampler blocks.
This is just one example of how individual blocks can be tied together, giving one a restful and peaceful look.
