Fun with Friends!

What a great week.  Thursday my cousin and I visited her friend who has a long arm quilting machine!! I had never seen one in use before and I was fascinated.  Here is my cousin pinning the back of my quilt to one of the bars.

Here is my black and white quilt being quilted on the machine. 

This is my black and white quilt with shots of color.  I have not put the binding on yet but I hope to do that this weekend. I am very excited about this quilt and how it turned out. 

Here is the back.  My $1/yard Elvis fabric!!

A close up of the quilting,  Betty did a great job.

For the Royal Wedding my friends and I got together,  wore our hats and watched.  Darlene took the top off of her Easter tree and put it on her hat. 

Our hostess did a great job of making us feel very English.  Her table was beautiful. Of course we had to have ham biscuits. 

 Here are all of us in our hats! What a hoot,  we had a great time.

Your quilt looks fab! It looks like you had fun watching the wedding. There weren't any street parties in my area so I watched it on the tv. They just looked so happy - it really was lovely to see.
