It was also Breakfast Club yesterday. Jane and I went together. I may have embarrassed her in my St. Patty attire. She's much too kind to say so though. We saw some pretty quilts during show n tell. Jane made another darling baby quilt. She said she bought these baby picture squares several years ago in Kalona and she was getting tired of them making angry faces at her every time she came across them in her stash. She decided it was time to sew them into a quilt. Lol. Isn't it adorable? The babies sure look happy now!
Here are a few more show n tell pix...
This antique beauty was purchased by Pam Brown as a top for $75! She then hand-quilted it.
This was an interesting quilt. I thought it was antique till I read the label. She saved Crown Royal bags and labels till she had enough to make a quilt. I assume Crown Royal is a liquor of some sort. It reminded me of 19th century quilts made of cigar labels. Neat idea.
Jane and I came home inspired to dive into our stashes and create! I quilted and sewed the binding on the doll quilt I showed you a couple posts ago. I'll share a picture when I take one. I soaked it to remove the blue markings and it's still damp. Our husbands went for an all day (after church) bike ride, so we had quilting time today. I haven't talked to her to see if she quilted, but I worked on Winds of War for a couple hours. I'm speaking in Wellman, Iowa tomorrow evening for the Kountry Quilters, so I had to pack everything in totes and load my car this afternoon. I'm leaving right after work tomorrow.
My quilting beckons me. Keep stitching!
