Greater Columbia Quilt Guild

Well, I finally did it. I joined GCQ! I have been thinking and talking about it for quite a while. So, today was the day. The program was great. Vicki Perry's mother did a trunk show. She started quilting in 1995 and has done wonderful work. She appliques and hand quilts. Show and tell was very good. Two different gals had made quilts of their houses, without knowing the other was doing the same thing. This was great. Now, I guess I will have to try that also. Will have to wait till spring to get a good picture, so I can get some green in there. LOL For those that dont know it, I have a hard time using green. It was a fun morning. I am looking forward to enjoying the new group. Dont worry Orangeburg, you are still my first guild. I already know a lot of the folks, from meeting them at our state guild, Quilters of SC.

After the meeting, DH and I had lunch, test drove a car (thinking only), then met DS at the doctors office. OH! forgot to add a trip to JoAnns in there, of course.

Happy Quilting,

Snow Days

2010 Snow....... It never snow in the lowcountry. Well... almost never. I think the last snow was 5 or 6 years ago. I worked on quilting a quilt. Not finished. The down stairs heater went out. We have had the wood stove going all weekend, so we didnt freeze. Patch had a ball playing in the snow. but got wet. The snow came up to his belly. Here are some pictures, enjoy.

Happy Quilting,Vicki

District 4 meeting

This past Saturday District 4 of Quilters of SC had our annual meeting. For those of you that dont know, Quilters of SC is divided into 7 districts in the state, using county lines. District 4 is in the middle of the state.
We gathered for food, fun, and quilting. It was a rainy cold day. What a great way to spend it, with quilters and quilts. Pictured is me, on the let and Terri on the right. The string star quilt is my show and tell. I still have to find time to quilt it.
Cathy Gainey from Rock Hill was our guest speaker. She told us about her favorite quilts. She loves to use plaid, homespun, and wool. Cathy hand dyes wool and had some to show and sell. I think she sold most of what she brought. I know I bought some. Cant wait to work with it.
Happy Quilting
