QuiltWorks 1st Friday Gallery Event

It was with such love and appreciation that I attended the 1st Friday Quilt Gallery Event for August at QuiltWorks.  JoAnn Marshall was the featured quilter and has always had a special place in my heart.  I have been quilting off and on with JoAnn since 1994 and was an early member of the Material Girls at BJ's Quilt Basket in Scandia Plaza.  Does that ever take me back.  She is generous of spirit and time,  loved by all.  She has been part of my youngest son's life...being one of his fairy godmothers!  So, it is with great pleasure that I share the slide show of her quilts.  The other part of the showing was the 2011 Quilt Challenge by the Material Girls.  Each person had to use a specified Batik fabric, then make a quilt with blocks that started with the maker's first name initial and last name initial.  The quilts were as varied as the Material Girls.  It was really happening last night...a huge turn out of the quilting community.  Again Dave, Marilyn and the crew of QuiltWorks provided great eats, drinks and prizes.  A great sale was had by all and life was sweet in QuiltWorks.
