PTA - A New Year

The first meeting of the year with any group is always refreshing. It gives us the chance to reflect on the past year and also move forward with new ideas and plans. It's a clean new slate. Our January meeting of PTA was held at Lynne's house; lots of enthusiastic gals. 
We talked and ate and laughed and showed our latest projects.
Can't say we had an overabundance to things to show...with holiday celebrations and all but what we got to see was great. Mary is always showing new work and I really liked this floating piece made with batiks and white fabric. The binding was also batiks.
A pieced quilt from Connie, made from a kit from the Asheville Quilt Guild. Our guild like so many guilds donates many lovely quilts to the community.

I loved this very patriotic quilt with circle quilting...a nice pattern to use with rectangle blocks.
Connie was out driving with her husband Ted when she suddenly yelled STOP....She saw out of the corner of her eye, quilts...yes quilts... at a garage sale. Wow what a find and since Connie is an AQS certified quilt appraiser, finding these wonderful old quilts made it even more special.
We were all very taken with this beauty...
and a detail. We are all anxiously looking forward to our retreat - our 11th year. We are planning projects and meals and the wine will be here before we know it. Happy 2019 everyone...hope it will be a really good one for all of you.
