I went to the Guild meeting last night and was pleasantly surprised, a couple ladies spoke to me. One lady actually complimented my cookies!! I took a top that I had made about a year ago for "Show and Tell." It is one of my favorites. It was my first Stack and Whack. I got a few OOOhhhs and AHHHs, so I was happy. Perhaps they are not such bitches after all. (Well, some of them are!!)
I tried to take photos, but they did not come out well. I will post a few. The ladies that attended from the Elkins Quilt Guild were very nice and I am tinkering with the idea of joining their group. They are very involved with a lot of charity work and seem to be so friendly. Hmmm...I will have to ponder that.
Today I will be cleaning house, making blueberry jam and hopefully get in my sewing room for some quilting. We'll see how that goes.
This is my stack and whack - the main material is an oriental print with cups and tea pots. It reminds me of The Baby and our Tea Time Thursdays.
The lady who made this quilt did it while on a car trip to see her family. She hand pieced each of the 9 patch blocks. When she got to the various houses of her family, they would help piece some of the blocks. She said the 9 patches represent the 5 girls and 4 boys in her family. The girls are the "bright" materials and the boys are the background material. I thought that was funny!
This is a quilt that was made for the son of the quilter. He was in the Navy and had been to Australia and loved it there. She found material that represented Australia and this is what she came up with. I wish the photo was better - the quilt was stunning. The back was as wonderful as the front.
Hope you all have a wonderful day - mine will be busy, but good.
