I had the pleasure this weekend of meeting the Canoe City Quilters when they booked a quilting weekend at the B&B.  What a fun group of ladies!  Aside from the fact the lavished me (and Tille) with attention, they were just fun to hang out with on the patio while they worked on the beautiful quilts they were making.  The weather was so cooperative that they spent most of their time outside and the evenings in the common rooms at the neat quilting machines they brought with them.  It is quite an operation making a quilt!  Lots of time and patience goes into selecting patterns and materials, cutting fabric to size, using the machines and hand sewing.  Incredible talent in this group!  They also spent some time on Saturday enjoying Mayfair in Bath – visiting yard sales, shopping downtown and enjoying a lovely dinner at Solo Bistro.  I look forward to their return next year!

One last picture before departing - Lupi is looking forward to next year.
