Yesterday was Bee Day! What a great day! Linda was our hostess with the mostest – thank you Linda! Now I usually take a lot of pictures of the food, the visiting, the laughter and the fun but for some reason I was having so much fun I forgot to take pictures. But I did get the show and tell and that’s a good thing – it was particularly fabulous yesterday … so here you go!
First up was Lynda – she was having a dilemma assembling her quilt and asked for a bit of advice. Well, we are never short on advice!
Suz was binding this quilt and said she would unfold it once and only once for show and tell… (until Sally showed up and she unfolded it again). This A&M quilt for Suz’ niece is called Tradition – now, let me see if I can get the story straight – she has two pictures of nieces with Revelry the mascot and anything done twice at A&M is considered a tradition. (Is that right, Suz?).
When I got up for show and tell, Lynda tried to help out but the camera was a bit challenging so dear Judy took over the photography detail – thanks y’all! Here is my latest in bringing chickens into the kitchen without the mess:
I just got two quilts back from my quilter (Susan Corbett). This first one is from Barbara Brackman’s Threads of Memory blog:
Peggy brought a project box to show and tell. I got so caught up in her story, the only picture I got was of her holding the box!
The project box contains a quilt project that Peggy started a long time ago. Our guild speaker last week was Froncie Quinn and wonderful her presentation was about historical quilts and how she creates quilt designs for reproduction quilts. Well, at some point Peggy had visited the Shelburne Museum, had seen this quilt and had bought the pattern.
After hearing the speaker at guild, Peggy found her project box and discovered that a lot of the nine patches are complete and the applique prepped and ready to stitch. She is all inspired again. How fun is that whole story?!
Sally brought a very special quilt to share – made for her friend as a remembrance of a lost child. So much thoughtfulness and love went into this quilt – it will be a precious gift.
Nancy came across several antique quilts being given away by a neighbor (I think…). Here are just a couple of these amazing quilts:
Have a great weekend, y’all!
