My birthday was on a Monday night this year so I celebrated it with the Wonderful Women Who Quilt the night division of Pieceful Hearts Quilter in North Augusta, SC. We meet at St. Bart's Episcopal Church on Martintowne Road the first Monday of the month for meetings and every Monday following for quilting bees. They are a great group of ladies and we have lots of fun helping each other and spurring each other on in our projects. Usually only a handful come to the bees but the meetings are rather large.

The WWWQ gave me flip flops for my birthday!! They said since it wasn't a finished quilt they were going to give it to me as a quilt kit...thankfully they were kidding :)
They wouldn't tell me what was going in the middle so I suppose I will have to wait to see what it is
Sooooo.... I was invited to the quilt workday the following week after Margaret was finished working and this is what they had done before I got there
adding some flip flops
Mary & Margaret pondering
Laying it out what does it need????
Margaret sewing like a fiend & Ille preparing to iron.
Ille who irons as meticulously as she quilts and pieces.
Mary working on flip flop blocks
Quilt so far...and yes Margaret I swiped the pic from your blog *heh heh heh*
