I've had a lovely day today at the first meeting of Country Roads Quilters as we are now called. One day we might make something with the Country Roads block (which you can see on Marcia Hohn's "Quilters' Cache" site here) but today we mainly chatted. We seem to be a lovely mix of experience, style and quilting preferences so I think it's going to be a lively and stimulating group, challenging to old hands and supporting to new quilters.
Sweetypie50 and Angela who I've been trying to get together with all summer, she blogs at Fenland Textile Studio. Do pop over to their blogs, they both do very exciting things.
It was also lovely that people willingly agreed to do little jobs so that Country Roads Quilters can be a group of friends sewing rather than a top heavy, committee-led group.
