I wish I had had my camera with me the other day. I arrived at Experience Quilts! just as a carload of quilters from Hermiston, Oregon were coming in the door. Then a while later, just as the last of the Oregon ladies were exiting, another group (from Ellensburg this time) arrived. I had the best time visiting with them all and assisting the staff (more like getting in the way) with cutting and check-out.
I wish I had had my camera because, as the one group was leaving and the other arriving, it occurred to me that there MUST be a name for a group of quilters. If there can be parliaments of owls and pods of whales, murders of crows and flocks of starlings, there MUST be a good name for a bunch? a cluster? a patch? of quilters.
If you haven't checked out our facebook page, be sure to do so on Wednesdays. We will be posting a series of questions, and choosing a winner from everyone who answers it each week. The prize will be one yard of fabric - absolutely free. We choose it, we cut it, and we ship it - free of charge. What could be better to a quilter than free fabric?
Keep your eyes on the prize, quilters!

Well, duh.

It appears that it only took me three and a half years to discover that all I had to do to add to our blog was to go there. Whee! It's possible that everyone will be sorry I discovered this, but then again, perhaps not.
It's the third day of our little Red, White and Blue Quilt Show here in Odessa, and it's been fun! I wanted to thank all the quilt guild members who volunteered to help, from setting up to babysitting the displays to taking down. We couldn't do it without you!

We were so impressed with all of the quilts of valor that were displayed at our show. Kudos to all those quilters who keep making them for our American heroes.
