Today's Crosstown Quilters Guild Meeting

Harvey Leonard, chief meteorologist on Channel 5, remarked tonight that we have had significant rain on thirty-three of the last forty-one days. In fact, last night we even had a nor'easter with even more pouring rain and wind. Though today dawned cold, wet, raw, dismal, and miserable, it didn't deter sixty-two members from attending this morning's Crosstown Quilters Guild meeting. Warmth and laughter filled the hall.

After our business meeting, we voted on a quilt which will represent our guild at this summer's Lowell Quilt Museum's annual guild display. Edith's Blooming Nine Patch was selected from a field of positively lovely entries, any one of which would have represented our guild well. (I thought that I had a photo of Edith's quilt, but unfortunately it doesn't appear that I do.)

Then it was on to an awesome Show and Tell session. I'm including a few photos throughout this post for you to enjoy.

 I loved Linda's hexagon quilt with its exquisite free motion quilting.

And look . . .  Ann's quilt even had feet!!! ( I couldn't resist not cropping this one. :-)

We saw many completed versions of our guild mystery quilt that had been designed by Laurie G.  What fun it was to see the color and fabric choices that were made.

And after last month's string quilt workshop with Mary Cannizzarro of Cannizzarro Creations many brought their colorful quilts.

Pssst . . . Don't get your hopes up, but Harvey also said that the upcoming weekend might be warm and dry . . . Keep your fingers crossed.
