Enchanted Quilters of Lopez Island 
Scrapbook History - Part #2
1988 - 1998

EQ Christmas Luncheon 1988

Looks like Marge Gradle was the only one short enough to get into this phot. I think the photographer was focusing in on the Log Cabin table runner in the center of the picture.

Just a date of 1988 on this one. Anne Dawson on left; Vivian Burt at end of table on left. Wini Alexander center in vest looking at camera. Marge Gradle on right nearest the camera. 
Someone please help me ID the others in this photo.

A 1991 filed trip to a quilt exhibt in Canada.

I am not certain if this is an EQ field trip or a Northwest Quitling Connection (NQC) field trip. I looked back through my letters from my mother-in-law (Wini Alexander) and found no description of such a 1991 trip.  That is strange because Wini always wrote me about all her quilting expeditions. However, in my 1990 file on Wini I did find a copy of the NQC newsletter The Connecting Thread that mentions field trips to Vancouver, B.C. in 1990. I have a feeling this was a field trip this group made again and again over the years.
