Nedra had a wonderful lunch ready for us when we arrived; she served salad, fresh salsa with chips, and a delightful southwestern chicken dish. For dessert we had a chocolate pudding cake with ice-cream. After eating, we were anxious to talk quilts. Nedra has beautiful, breath-taking quilts in every room, and has a wonderful pincushion collection that I really enjoyed seeing; she also is an accomplished needleworker and has created many beautiful samplers.
Just a couple of Nedra's striking quilts...I should have taken more pictures...but I was truly enjoying looking at everything.
Of course we had to take a group picture; Nedra's son was our cameraman! Pictured from left to right: Nanette, Dawn, me, and Nedra.
We spent some time in Nedra's wonderful sewing room...(again, I should have taken some pictures)...and then we browsed Nanette's Japanese books and magazines for quilt inspiration. (Nedra took some great pictures that are posted here).
