Denman Island Quilters first meeting of 2016

We had a wonderful meeting this morning, twenty-five quilters meeting and greeting and best of all, show and tell.
I had two quilts to show, my Blue Dreams quilt that I recently finished, and my Pink Roses quilt that I have been hand quilting through 100% cotton batting (don't do it - trust me, only wool batting for hand quilting!!!) off and on (more off than on) for about 7 years. Now that I have a 6 year old granddaughter, I have motivation to finish this lovely but very intense project. I am aiming for her eighth birthday, although one suggestion at the meeting this morning was to aim for her high school grad. We will see . . .
