Several quilts there were on display only. This was Pat's from her presidency last year. She asked everyone for a fat quarter of green. Then we wrote our names on the petals. It's a wonderful, restful quilt.
this one took 25 years to complete!!! It was gorgeous! All hand pieced and appliqued, and hand quilted!
This is mine. I had gotten the top in an antique store and hand quilted it. Got a 2nd place on it. All voting was viewers choice.
Here are the challenge pieces. I did the dragons. And it was the wrong size for the challenge. Got to read all the directions.
This was on the 4th of July in Norris. Next time I write, I'll put up pictures of the other things going on outside! I just love going over there! It rained on and off that day. Been doing that most of the week. Even a minute ago, it was pouring down, and now the sun is out and it's so humid!
Got my back adjusted today and tomorrow is a massage. Got to do things that make the body feel good or else you can't function. I'm also pulling out things that I know I have and getting things into quilts! A panel that I got in Houston...3 or 4 years ago? Now I'm ready to baste it. Will just quilt around the design. And when the table gets cleared off completely, I have 2 large quilts to baste. The one that I just got in Sweetwater. And another one that is Dresden Plates. Bought a backing for that today.
We are lucky in this area! There are so many quilt shops! Each has it's own "flavor" of fabrics. So I went to the one that has the reproduction fabrics for the Dresden plates. Mammaw's Thimble. She's been open for years and keeps getting bigger and better!
Keep your area stores busy! They need your support or next thing you know, they will be gone!
