Where or where???????????????

Did the “warm” go!!!!! 39F this morning, as I looked out at the brightly shining sun, and saw that ‘below average/temps’ would be around for a while longer! Springtime in Minnesota…….a little something for all!!!!!

Tuesday eve was my smaller/local quilt gathering was exactly that…..smaller. Other life activities always have a way of intervening but, for those who attended, the evening began early with a wonderful supper and ended quite late………with non-stop chattering! It was so good to be together!

A few photos of quilty completions and ‘finds’…………..IMG_5761  Twyla is always busy with items for her business. Both the runner above and below are dual season toppers with the backing suitable for winter or spring………..IMG_5762 

Ann, along withTwyla, has been helping with their church mission quilt project and brought a simple top example to share………………..IMG_5763

And our quilt historian/rescuer, Joan, did it again with this thrift shop acquisition that was saved from being turned into a possible pet cushion!!! She spied it as she and hubby were about to leave the shop……….$2 (yes, that is correct!!!) was the price on this beauty………………IMG_5765IMG_5766  Hand quilted! We figure, because of it not having any type of batting, that it was a sweet summer bed coverlet. The only real “damage” was some of the yellow center hexies have disintegrated, due to the fabric dyes used years ago. Other than that issue……perfect!!!!

Marilyn brought this finished top/”flimsy” with the question……to border or not. We decided ‘not’, since the size was large enough. She is now in search of more of the lattice fabric for the binding!!!! IMG_5767

To see the items I shared, just check out my previous posts for the vintage bling and posts here and here.

Now, on to some current projects……reveals soon………………………

    Love the double sided table topper. Is blue side a D9P ? You have very clever friends

    Isn’t that the truth….I had hoped that spring really had sprung, but here in SD we have to take the moisture any way that we can get it. The wet seems to be keeping leaves from a total freeze, not sure how the cherry and apple blossoms are faring, but there is always hope. 🙂

  5. What a fun group. And $2 for that vintage quilt? Wow.
