A Wonderful Day

It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood.


Our hostesses set a festive Christmas table to welcome us.



My friend Sheryl really loved the quilt I made for her.


And I really loved the quilt my friend Barbara made for me!

Thank you all for your kind comments regarding the quilt I made for Sheryl. It was wonderful to give it to her and see how happy she was with it. The very best part of giving a quilt to another quilter is that they fully appreciate what it means.

The cheerful quilt I got from my friend Barbara is pretty wonderful too, don't you think? I forsee many an afternoon or evening curled up under it while I read a good book or watch TV.

We had so much fun today my face hurts from laughing. We ate amazing and delicious food and exchanged thoughtful little gifts, things like scented soaps and candles and Christmas ornaments. Then we had our thrilling annual quilt exchange. Not to take anything away from family, but this is the best Christmas party I attend each year, hands down.

There will be more posts in the days to come showing the rest of the quilts that were exchanged. May you all feel the joy of the season.

Which one got the better quilt is a definite toss-up. Thank you for sharing the party. I had a good time too!

Your weather looks wonderful to me, the snow we got a few days ago is melting, so now we have a lot of mud and slush. Yuck!
I love the quilts, Log Cabins are one of my favorite patterns. I know what you mean about quilters really appreciating the gift of a quilt. From the smiles on those faces those quilts will both be much loved!
