Quilting Corner came to visit

A bunch of the ladies from Quilting Corner came this morning to my home, moving their weekly gathering at my invitation. While I am considered a member of the group, I have not had a chance to attend but a few of the gatherings. I was thrilled when they all agreed to travel here. We had a lovely morning of show and tell (all mine!) and it was a pleasure to explain the stories behind many of the pieces that I've made since I started quilting. We also had a very nice time at the bagel shop down the block for lunch.

The gatherings are almost always hosted by Etty in her home in Beitar. The highlight of today's gathering was the presentation to Etty of a quilt initiated by Susan of Scrap Happy. We all made signed blocks, but the quilt was organized, put together, and tied by Susan! Thank you, Susan! It's also Etty's birthday in about a week, so it was perfect timing.

Check the Quilting Corner blog for more photos, probably later today.
