Those Mesa Ladies/ May

 As you probably know
one of my most favorite days of the month
is when I have a chance to get together with
Those wonderful Mesa Ladies
That is not their official name, 
just a title I have dubbed
because most have lived by each other
 in the same neighborhood in Mesa
for years and years.
We meet at their church
to work on quilt projects
and share yummy food. 
Such nice ladies!
This month most of us brought 
Works In Progress
Janet found a spot out in the hallway
to lay out her blocks for this bright happy Chevron quilt.
Cute fabrics!
Peg had 
left over
red white and blue
4th of July blocks
and was putting together a small throw.
Steph has a new little grand daughter
and was starting a beautiful
blessing dress 
Her fabric choice is a delicate white sheer
embroidered with polka dots.
Renee always makes the most interesting backs for her quilts.
Little bits of left over scraps 
that make the backs of her quilts
as fun as the fronts.
Gina was sewing simple squares together 
with a lovely Japanese cotton/ linen blend
fabric line:
Steph, Gina and I teamed up together 
to provide the lunch this month.
We asked Steph to bring one of her amazing salads
because she really is the best in this category
Her Pesto Pasta Salad 
is to die for.
Recipe can be found on Steph's blog
Gina brought fresh Strawberry pie
And as part of my contribution
I provided 
Inner Peas
because I wanted all the ladies to be able to leave
with a little *Inner Peas inside them.
(*from Trader Joes: crunchy, salty like a potato chip)
