March 2014 JSS Bee meeting at Madelyn’s – part 1

Madelyn is the “Hostess with the Mostest” and JSSers responded with equal enthusiasm for the March JSS monthly gathering. Part 1 for this blog is a show ‘n tell by Madelyn.  The quilts speak volumes!

Jack did not take this photo, but I had to take a photo of this photo.  When referring to Madelyn as the “Hostess with the Mostest,” Delta Airlines agrees! Here is Madelyn’s graduation photo – officially a Flight Ahhhtendant!


These last photos are in Madelyn’s quilt studio! Linger and look around – MANY PROJECTS in process by this MULTI-talented Quilt Artisit!

  1. Loved it!!! Madelyn – you secretive, closeted, ambitious, energetic, colorful quilt artist! And all I saw were circles! 🙂 What a feast for the senses – I loved the tour — Thank you, Judy!!!!!

  2. OK, I was there and I didn’t see all this. Great pics! It was a great day with precious friends, delicious food and much laughter. Ahhhh, we are so very blessed! Thanks, Judy, for helping us feel the love all over again.

    • Was it SO FUN to see Lani HERE! Yes, she is HERE! Her address is TEXAS once again! She is no longer an out-of-towner. She even went so far as out-of-the-country! WELCOME HOME, Lani! Looking forward to seeing other out-of-towners at April retreat! Sarah, you will be missed!

    • And I totally forgot to take a photo of The Official Parking Attendant! Sorry Jack! Actually he could have taken off his Valet hat and put on his Photographer hat and joined us. It would be great to see his creative photos of Y’ll’s quilts and woodworking!

  3. Yes, thanks Judy for the wonderful tour of Madelyn’s beautiful home and inspiring decor. The color is bright and beautiful and in spite of having such a fun day there, still missed a few things! We will have to go back…..soon!!! Thanks to Maddye for hosting…….anytime….

  4. WOW!!! Loved the amazing photos!!! That Madelyn is creative, a great hostess, has a mathematical mind and is a great friend. She is multi-talented, and may I add courageous?!!
    Thanks so much for sharing all that. I LOVED every display…..including Jack’s.
