Before I get to more photos from yesterday's guild meeting, I want to show you my latest finish (3rd this year). I know. The mistake is front and center, sticking out like a sore thumb. I finished the top about 3 years ago, discovering the mistake as soon as I finished. Too lazy at the time to fix it. Then it became a piece to practice machine quilting and sat for about two more years. I finally put the binding on it, finishing the hand stitching Sunday night. I donated it to the Cuddle Quilt program at BQG Monday morning. Whew!
Here's a quick shot of an adorable sweat shirt jacket C was wearing - bet you didn't know I took a picture of your back! :)
The speakers for the meeting were two sisters from Tennessee who have written String Quilt Revival. Their program was wonderful - here are a few of their quilts:
By the way, these patterns are not in their book - they sell them as separate patterns on their website.
I was also enamored with their hooked wool rugs. I have done only a bit of this, but seeing their work made me want to do more. I'll share some rug photos tomorrow...
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
