Quilting at the Convent

I met with some other guild members and my daughter (who just graduated college with a degree in Chemistry and starts work at her new job on Monday, I'm so proud) met at the convent at Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio to work on auction quilts.  The nuns have a lovely workroom for their sewing projects and kindly let us meet here once a month.

from the left, Joyce, Ida and Nancy are working on projects for our guild.  Isn't the convent basement sewing room nice?  So peaceful too.  

Joyce and I are holding up the Funky Chicken group quilt.  Nicole (my daughter) and I put these blocks together on this day.  The blocks were made by retreaters one year and were lost for many years.  So everyone is excited to see how this one turns out.  I get the pleasure of quilting it, hmmmm.  Funky variegated feathers in outer black borders??  

Hope your day is great, Karen
