Stitching with the Village Quilters in Wheaton

I had a lovely visit with the ladies of the Village Quilters last night.

After a very brief business meeting, the very quickest of any guild I have ever visited, I was up! Fortunately I managed to plug everything in the right socket first time and the ladies whip stitched their wool circles down while I shared my story…

Then we set to stitching perfect french knots and made a start on our bullions. At least the ladies kept smiling!

DSC03521Don’t forget to slide your wraps down the needle before you push the needle through!

DSC03522I promised the ladies a small discount if they come and visit me at naperville quilts! with a completed project in hand. There’s nothing like an incentive to persevere!

Then we moved on to show and tell. There was an amazing selection of quilting styles on display…

We were finished in time to get home and catch the end of the basketball game.

These ladies wanted a closer look at my Imperial Blooms quilt before I packed it away…
