Wanabe Show and Tell

There is always a bunch of things to see at each month's Wanabe Friendship group meeting. This month I was taken back at 2 very traditional pieces. The first, an old piece long ago began and owned by the recently deceased daughter-in-law of a member. Mother-in-law member finished the border and Phyllis Reddish quilted it for gifting back to the young family ( 3 kids plus Dad) now without their Mom.

And can you believe it?This quilt top was GIVEN to a member by someone who didn't know what to do wih this unfinished heirloom. Now... it is beautifully quilted, and finished.

The following is a class wool applique sampler by Carol Culbert. Is this not cool stuff?

Another chance to use embroidery stitches usually seen on crazy quilts. Wool is quite the thing of late, isn't it.

Well all that said, I am off to a couple days of private retreat sewing. While I am essentially an art quilter, I have 30 ( count 'em) 30 shabby chic wedding party table runner to get made for a May wedding. Peddle to the metal ,Patt!!
