Wow "Charming Girls"! Thanks so much for the awesome response to our new Quilt Club! I'm very excited about getting to know all of you a little better, and getting to work with you on moving our UFO's to FO status.
And, best of all, it's nice to be in good company with other quilters who have several UFO's, and need a little incentive! No -- I don't get to be in the drawing. But, it would be aweful embarrassing as the club host to not get my project finished (Yikes), so I've been "incentivized" too!
From my count, we have 53 Charming Girls in the Club--and tons of quilts and other projects that are about to be FINISHED!!
Okay, let's have a look at all of our members (for those without blogs I'll post pictures here, and then links for those that have blogs):
