An Applique Affair

I went to the 1st Annual "An Applique Affair" today. Several women from my quilt guild have organized the Tallahassee Chapter of "The Applique Society". I have always been in love with applique.
We met at 9:30am this morning and had a wonder day filled with show and tell, demonstrations and sharing.

One of the loveliest quilts I have seen in a long time was shown by Mary Katherine Scott. She is a wonderful quilter and a very sweet lady. I hope one of these days my applique is as good as her's.

Show and tell was wonderful, the ladies who organized the day, all brought examples of their applique quilts and told a little bit about themselves. We also went around the room and shared our quilting path.

Lunch was served and was a wonderful chicken casserole that was so light and tasty and a salad with the most wonderful toppings. I have asked for the recipes.

It was a great day. I can't wait for our first meeting. I will share some of my applique projects later.

You are so right that first quilt is just amazing....I too love applique but sometimes can't sit still long enough to do it.

Oh my, I just love these quilts. The first one is my favorite. It looks like a mini Baltimore Album quilt. I just love applique now. My favorite. Nice seeing you and your blog. Steph
