This month The Professional Textile Artists group met at Marene's home. 
 .........where we enjoyed this awesome view.
 Marene comes by her interest in quilting quite honestly. Her show and tell included a number of vintage family quilts.
 What fun it would be to closely pour over all these charming cotton prints!
 Stunning, yes!?!?
 We were pretty sure this was a kit quilt......I personally love its simplicity.
 Gen continues to create the most eye-popping cards using alcohol inks.

 This one is nearly the same color as the hexie quilt Mary B. is hand stitching!!
 Barbara never leaves home without her knitting.....such tiny, tiny stitches...
 Judy accomplished some practical sewing recently, using some upholstery type fabric samples that Georgia Bonesteel was gifted and shared with our group.  There must be at least 25 place mats.....all so charming and different.
I'm remiss by not having a photo of the right side of this fabric pin.....yet this is the view that might interest you the most.  Look at this clever magnet system that is used to attach the pin to a garment.  What an improvement over those dull pointed pins we normally see that make big holes in our clothing!

Such a fun day...didn't realize how well Gen's card matches Marys hexagon quilt - amazing!
