We first made our plans, and then our hostess gave us a house tour, showing us many of her quilts that are displayed, her quilting spaces, etc. Then we had a delicious lunch. Here are some pictures that I took before the batteries ran out in my camera! [There's a big gap between the picture of Rita and two other pictures that I posted, a gap that I can't seem eliminate, so keep scrolling down for the last two pictures.]

perhaps a doll quilt, atop a mirror!

|This Dear Jane quilt hangs in the living room; it is one of several that Rita has made!|
|Another Dear Jane--this one, made of|
30s reproduction fabrics. The other was
made from Civil War reproduction fabrics. I was
in Rita's Dear Jane class, but dropped out when
my fall last year became too hectice!
|Here Rita, our hostess, is showing us a "double-sided" quilt. She|
|Jinny Beyer design, paper-pieced, that|
Rita is currently working on.
