By the time the quilters arrived, I had all of our traditions in place. The “Fabric is Better Than Food” Christmas tree was up and decorated with the hand crafted ornaments the quilters have made over the years with a gift for each quilter under the tree. The Honeybaked Ham was on the table as expected. Bessie’s Happy Cake and Max’s pound cake were in their place of honor. Laura’s handmade snowmen coasters were on the table.
The highlight of “Show and Tell” is always the challenge quilts. This year’s challenge, which was issued by Roz, was to make a quilt that included the flying geese block and fairy frost fabric. The quilts were amazing!
I must admit, however, that the star of this year’s brunch was my new quilt studio. Charlotte prayed a prayer of blessings for my studio and made it a holy place. To my amazement, the quilters (organized by Marva) each came bearing gifts for my studio! I was overwhelmed by their generosity. Each of their gifts will find a special place in my studio.
It was a good, good day!
