Another wonderful meeting with great friends. We had a big turn out at Sherry's house yesterday. We exchanged our pizza boxes and showed our new blocks. We now have 12 completed squares in our boxes and we can start to see what our quilts will eventually look like. We also had a great show and tell as you can see below.
Afterwards, Sherry showed us how to make cute pin cushions starting with just 2 circles of fabric.
Then, of course, we had a tasty lunch with a pasta vegetable salad, fresh sliced strawberries, homemade french bread and a fun dessert. The recipes are at the end of the post.
