A Photo Recap………..

Of last eve’s quilt group gathering………..First, Lynda with a quilt made some time ago using a black fabric that has degraded/shredded over time. This is one of several she made using the black yardage that, we wonder, if the dye has “eaten” the threads.quilting at Anita's 001  Check out the black cows….top row, left block and 2nd row, 2nd from the right block.

quilting at Anita's 003  This quilt is a wedding gift for Lynda’s daughter…..an end of July wedding is planned. And the backing…………….quilting at Anita's 004

This next quilt, Joan picked up for $4.50 at a Minnesota Salvation Army store!!!!!!! “Rescued” would be a more appropriate word!!!quilting at Anita's 006

Her next “finds”………….quilting at Anita's 007   Quilting detail……..quilting at Anita's 008

quilting at Anita's 009  Positively electrifying color!!!!!!

quilting at Anita's 011   I quilted this quilt last January for Anita. The binding is now applied and she decided this one is a “keeper”!! There are more photos and details on my post here. It’s one of 2 kits of this design that she purchased from Connecting Threads. The blue/white combo is so classic!!!!!

Twyla has a crafting business and is always coming up with the most beautiful ideas! Here she combines her quilting with her fabulous painting talents. The flowers/centers are specialty buttons. quilting at Anita's 012quilting at Anita's 014quilting at Anita's 013

  1. Lovely and creative. The peach 4-patches was a thrift store find?? I need to hang out in thrift stores more often!

    Yesterday I met with my small group, too. It’s a funny group — of 9 of us, 4 do very little quilting. They rarely have anything to show for show-and-tell. But we love them anyway. 🙂

      I totally relate!!! Quilting is merely a reason/common thread(?) for the gathering……friendships and relationships is the “key”!!!!!! Glad you enjoyed the post! Hugs……………..

  2. I always love these show-and-tell sessions. Those “rescued” quilts were a steal. At least someone who really appreciates them found them.

  3. What a great array of quilts!

    Love the wedding quilt and the backing is so appropriate. Your group of ladies are so busy…and those “rescued” quilts are gorgeous. Wonderful quilts and so glad they found a good home.

    Many, many lovely quilts here! I love the “show and tell” portion of our quilt guild meetings–the variety and talent always amaze me. The idea of the fabric breaking down in the cow quilt is very scary, though!

    • treadlemusic says:

      We are totally mystified…..and alarmed…..by it. She said that it was fabric purchased just like any other good quilt fabric!!! We’ll never know, though. So glad you stopped by for a visit!!! Hugs…………………………….

    There are some lovely quilts amongst those but the one that truly grabs me is the Rapid Fire Hunter’s Star. It is stunning. I could imagine it in various two colourways, but I think Carol’s choice is amazing. The stars really pop.

    • treadlemusic says:

      I couldn’t agree more…..her choices were perfect. The pattern instructions give directions for doing it in the 2 colors or up to 4. We all agreed that more is not better in this case!

    What a wonderful collection of beautiful quilts. My favorite is that one (from the top 5th and 6th) which shows flowerers made from ties!
