It was another wacky day on the bus to and from work. This morning I had a church youth minister for a bus driver. He had very interesting stories which he shared with the four of us but it was a bit too deep for 6:30 am. The ride home felt like we were on a magnet and we kept getting cut off all the way home -- wonder how frequently they have those brakes inspected on busses??? The final act was a landscaping panel truck that cut across Main Street -- so close we should have hit him. I think I saw that same truck on my way to the quilt guild meeting tonight!
The meeting was a flurry of activity with chatter, food, and quilts abound. Without further ado, here is the raffle quilt ticket being drawn by our oldest senior member, Merry, using the raffle drum I borrowed from my neighbor, the Royal Canadian Legion Hall, ~~
and the winner is Karen, who sold 100 tickets for the cause ~~
As I mentioned in yesterday's post, tonight we had the reveal for our Blue & White Challenge quilts.
First up, quilt #1 (on the left) by our out-going president Lynne won an honorable mention~~
My friend Kathy's quilt, #16 (near the bottom), also won an honorable mention ~~
Cathy's quilt, #3, won third prize ~~
She used a lot of the fabrics I would have used, if I'd just gotten off my duff and done it.
Next up is the second prize winner, Nancy, whose quilt #15 was very traditional yet whimsical ~~
And the winner of this year's challenge was Jaime -- who wasn't even there to hear the wonderful praise ~~
Jaime won $125 for her efforts!
Here are some of the other entries that I enjoyed seeing ~~
And my friend Sue's Rice Bowls (or is it Tea Cups??) quilt from Kaffe Fassett ~~
It really was a fun night and I have more pictures to share, especially one about a pool boy, but that will have to wait for tomorrow. Time for me to get some shut eye!
