Show and Tells are FUN for Everyone!
Barb brought in a quilt top that is almost 100 years old!! She took her grandmother's quilt top and attached it by applique to a boarder! It was amazing how vibrant the fabrics still were after 90+ years! The quilt is gorgeous...nice job Barb! What a special keepsake!
This grey and white quilt has been a labor of love, but it sure turned out beautiful! Thank you for working with us on the fabric colors...it is just striking!!
Another driveway stitchin completion! Just to quilt, and I think Phyllis is planning to do the quilting by hand! We all loved the gold metallic crown!
