Our STITCH meeting had to be rescheduled to this week because of last week's snow, and the only people who made it this week were Carol and me. But since Carol was hosting, I got treated to a showing of some of her antique quilts, and she served freshly made banana bread and we managed to talk for the usual two hours!
The colors on the quilts are vibrant and full of life. The hand quilting stitches are so tiny, but it also didn't feel like there was batting. That would make it easier to take tiny stitches. They must have been summer quilts.
This log cabin is one of my favorites because of the exuberant colors and mix of prints.
But the most special quilts were these next two, which Carol's mother and grandmother made for her. Some of the fabric is from her old clothing.
Carol's current project is this wavy arc quilt, which I also love for the colors and movement.
And what would a special day be without silver sequined slippers? That's Carol, not me.
QUESTION: I'm experimenting with using larger text to make it easier to read. Comments? Is this helpful?
Have a colorful day
