The Twisted Sisters

One of the blessing that occurs during the Stitchin' Post Quilters Affair is the people you meet!  Thousands of quilters come together to share their love of this arts and craft form.  If you take the time, you will make life long friends.  For the last 2 years the Twisted Sisters have rented the house behind us and oooohhh baby are they an amazing group of quilters.  In the 10 days they come they'll average 25 quilt tops!!!  yes, I said 25...or maybe it is 28.  Anyhooooo it is a bucket load of quilt tops.  

I live in the most wonderful neighborhood where my neighbors (quilters and non-quilters) come together to share food, drink and conversation on a regular basis.  And so, we hosted an impromptu "Post Quilt Show Recovery" happy hour and the Twisted Sisters were welcomed into the fold!  

As you can see in the photo below...they actually finished the tops started at their Quilters Affair class in the same week!

Mary, Gabby, Robin and Sue...you ROCK!

  2. One of the most fun things about quilters is their evil sense of humor! Love those challenge prints...ie...better you than me!
