The following pictures are of the rest of the quilts made by our guild members. Names will be added to this blog post as they become available. My apologies if any quilts were missed. I gave it my best effort to get a picture of every quilt but it got so crazy just before the meeting began and it was hard to make sure I wasn't missing any as many last minute arrivals were being hung up.
