We had a very busy meeting this month. Of course it starts with show and tell....then we moved onto sewing the community quilt kits my other group (Fiber Junkies) made using surplus fabric from my friend's stash.Barbara wowed us with this disappearing 4-patch made from shirting fabric samples.
Linda Cantrell, well known nationally for her detailed humorous applique story quilts has been on a quilt hiatus for several years. BUT...yeah....she's back!! Here are several of the blocks she shared with us based on nursery rhymes. One needs to examine each block for a good long time to appreciate the attention to detail. For instance, Linda loves Boston Terriers.....and is a dedicated volunteer for the Boston Rescue Group.
Can you name each of the nursery rhymes these blocks depict??
Laughter, plenty of food, and beverages are always a staple at our meetings.
I brought 8 kits....patches, borders, backing, and binding all precut. Janice has a large area for us to set up 4 machines and plenty of room to arrange blocks on the floor and her design wall.
The finished quilts will be given to the Asheville Quilt Guild's Community Quilt project for disbursement.
