Day Bee Fun

   There was a good crowd at April’s Day Bee meeting hosted by Dorothy.  She had baked coffee cake and monkey bread for our enjoyment.  Lari passed out step 8 for the mystery quilt.  We need to sew together sets of 18 – 1 ½” strips that we cut in part 1. After the strip sets are sewn and pressed, they are to be cut into 3 ½” segments. 
     Bev brought a stack of magazines to share and plastic templates of quilting designs.  She also had a special quilt to show with the signatures of ladies in her family. 

Carol showed this lovely blue and white wallhanging she is working on.  She plans to add lots of sparkling beads to the center.  

While many of us just enjoyed visiting, Jean stitched the binding on a large charity quilt. 

Judy and Rosina also worked on projects.

After the meeting, 8 of us continued our fun time with quilting friends by going out to lunch together. Day Bee is open to any GCQ member that is interested.

HI - I will be working at my Pasta plant in Columbia area in a few weeks and was wondering if anyone can suggest some good fabric shops to pick up unusual fabrics for my art quilt projects. What's your favorite fabric store?
