Yesterday was a wonderful lecture at the Sassy Cat Quilt Shop. Mary W. from Vermillion spoke for two hours on her favorite subject--QUILTS!!! She spoke on style, fabrics, dating quilts. We were asked to bring our antique/vintage quilts and the stories behind them. So much eye candy! Here is Mary---
Her husband Steve helped hold quilts plus Mary brought more friends to help. Mary, Lorrie2Rs, Me, and Dee from Nebraska--
|Mary, Lorri2Rs, Me, and Dee from Nebraska|
We had a wonderful time! Dee brought the most wonderful quilt made for her husband by his mother--
The picture doesn't do it justice. The pattern was by Rainbow Quilt Co. This quilt was very heavy--Dee and Lorrie2Rs arms hurt after holding and waiting for me--
Mary brought me boy quilts, boy tops, and some fruit and veggie fabrics--
When I look at them I don't see the fruits and veggies (well, maybe the bananas), I see TOT fabrics. 51 pieces--I need to think of a pattern to use them. I think I will sort them by value. A good tool to sort is using a photo editing app and change your picture to black & white--
See how much easier it is to sort for value? Mary also shared one of her patterns--it is exactly the type of pattern I like--
Mary writes great directions. There are a lap, twin, double, queen and king size patterns in it.
Still not much sewing. Sigh This is getting old.
