I had a great time teaching and doing a lecture at the Charlotte Quilt Guild last week, located in Charlotte, NC. What a beautiful city. My goal was to go in a little early so I could "unwind" and oh yes, visit their Pottery Barn at a mall close by - I did both (-: !
Their evening meeting was packed full - so many nice ladies and such talent as revealed in their wonderful show and tell. One of my favorite things was their "Flash". Mind you, I had no idea what to expect when they said "time for the Flash" hmmmmm.......Many stood up all around the room, held up a quilt and counted off...1...2...3...I forget the final number but it was indicative of the amount of community quilts made that month. I thought that was incredibly clever. Unfortunately, it happened so fast, I didn't get a single picture, but the quilts were wonderful!
Next day, the workshop was held in the same building on the 10th floor - What a view! This guild has the good fortune to have the use of the facilities in a condominium for retired people; it is one beautiful place.
