Earlier this year I met with two friends I had become acquainted with through online quilt forums. LynnEl lives in Champaign and the Connie recently moved to Mt. Zion. The first time we met, we made a trip to Rochester to King’s Men Quilting Supply and had dinner in Forsyth. We all hit it off great and I really enjoyed meeting them. Since then, we’ve met up at the Decatur Quilt Fest and recently we had a mini guild meeting at Connie’s home in Mt. Zion. Connie has an APQS Millenium and we brought projects we were working on or needed advice on and just generally had a really nice show and tell. After lunch, I gave a practice lesson on trapunto. Each of us quilted a feather wreath and completed the trapunto portion of the lesson. We each took our wreath home to finish. Here are pics from our meeting and my finished wreath. I really enjoyed the afternoon. Thanks Connie for hosting us! LynnEl, your mint brownies were wonderful!
