Joanne spent her week working on this shop hop basket quilt kit that she bought in 2005 at the Button Box, which sadly closed this past weekend. Fellow Brown Bagger Lynne designed the basket block pattern provided the Button Box and designed the outer border of the quilt. Joanne came with three blocks made and made the rest of the blocks and assembled the outer border during our retreat. Isn't her quilt wonderful? It just needs to be layered and quilted now.

Nancy and Joanne were very lucky and each of them won TWO of our Right, Left, Center games. Nancy won the much-coveted Kaffe Fassett fabrics as well as the $2 lottery tickets. Sadly the lottery tickets only yielded $6 in winnings, but the new fabrics should make up for her paltry lottery returns.
|Here Cordula has decided to "style" Nancy for her photo. She has draped Nancy in her winnings, complete with a fat quarter hat.
|Sometimes gambling doesn't pay off, but fabric will last forever!
