Dec Meeting Recap

December's meeting for the CT Quilters QOV Group was a potluck luncheon that did not include sewing.  A good time of fellowship was had by all and excellent food was happily consumed!
The Leader asks "Are You Ready to Party?!"

But as is always the case with quilters, there were several wonderful contributions.

The first was made by Janet K:

And the second by Lize B:

Aren't they fabulous?!
  What a great way to close out 2014!!
