Before I start this fun post, let me just acknowledge the disaster in Haiti. I hope all those who have or are suffering will get the help they need. My thoughts are with the families of those lost and missing.
First, here is the progress on my Cheddar Cheese & Crackers from Lori's blog. It's been fun! I can't wait to finish it now.
Last Saturday the Cupcake club met at FIT for a guild meeting hosted by the Empire Quilters. In New York City.
I brought Red Velvet cupcakes for us, would it be a meeting without something sweet to eat?
Jill and Susan looked so cute in their matching purple. I didn't get the memo...
Sharon Schamber was the guest speaker. She has won Best in Show twice at the ASQ show and twice at the Houston Festival.
Here is some of her work that she brought to share with us. I came with a dead battery - thank Susan for sending me these photos!!
How lucky was I? I won a raffle prize. It was karma, I was going to buy my usual 6 for $5.00. The woman selling them accidentally had made a strip with 7, so for an extra buck I bought that one too figuring it was a sign, and it was. I got lots of good stuff and this cute bag.
These were the blocks for block of the month. I didn't make one, but I think they're great.
After the meeting we strolled over to the City Quilter. On the way, Jill took a photo of this beautiful window in the garment district.
At the shop I bought this exclusive NYC subway fabric and a few other things. Love the nome fabric.
After a complicated subway ride, we had a light dinner at La Bonne Soupe. We had the fancy french sandwich, Croque Monsier. It was perfect.
It was a busy, fun filled day - I hope you're finding fun things to do with your quilt friends!
