I know that Saturday, March 16th is National Quilting Day, but I celebrated a day early with three of my quilting friends.
Friday morning we met early to carpool to the Trinity Valley Quilt Guild meeting in Fort Worth. The minute you walk in the door, greeters welcome you into a room of lively, friendly quilters. Even though it is only 9:20a.m, everyone is excited to be there to share their projects, quilts, and stories. To make the meeting even more enjoyable the guest speaker was quilt designer, Beth Ferrier, as entertaining as she is talented.
After a quick sandwich and salad at McKinley's, we headed to Lone Star House of Quilts, located in a lovely old house in the residential area of Arlington. This is the place to shop if you love Civil War and reproduction fabrics, as ceiling to floor is covered with quilts of all sizes to tempt and inspire your creative side. After we had all purchased our share of the inventory, it was time to head home.
