Quilts! Quilts! Quilts

When our group of quilters, The Expatchers, gather there is a display of finished quilts. Here are just a few samples of our talent!
One Block wonder! Cut from one fabric! Not on my agenda!
Sampler quilt made by member Camilla, who will soon be moving (temporarily) to Mexico. Yes, we say temporary as she will 'be back'. Camilla is our quilt mom; keeper of records, announcer of meetings and special events--what will we do without her?
School house quilt that was worked on during our tenure in Venezuela.
The following are made with love from Grandmas for their grandkids.

We are a productive group as we not only make quilts for our personal use, we also make many charity quilts each year for Binky Patrol . Each time a quilter unfurls one of her treasures, we are amazed at our accomplishments. Many didn't learn to quilt until we started meeting in Venezuela. We were learning from each other, although we had a couple of members who had quilting in their experiences. Our gatherings continue, even though our expat members come in and out of the group. We are still learning from each other and sharing our common interest--we have a bond--we are expats and we love quilts!
