Quilted Kitty

Tomorrow night is block exchange at Ruth D's. I'll be bringing this kitty Ruth's to give to Louise to bind off. Daisy's charm group is making this quilt to donate to the Capitol City Quilt Guild for their Silent Auction booth. Georgia hand appliqued the kitty and did a superb job. The rest of us made the little stars. Carol Sc put the top together and did an excellent job with the placement. I machine quilted it over the weekend and watched basketball.

Till next time.....Happy Quilting!

Red and White Quilt Show

Taryn at the blog Repro Quilt Lover has a great idea. In celebration of Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts in NYC, she's organizing an online Red and White show. The idea is to post a red and white quilt from your collection (or maybe borrow a photo from a quilting friend) and post it. Then add the post to her site, Repro Quilt Lover. If you don't have a blog, you can send her a photo and she'll post it on her blog.

My addition to the show is this antique I bought at my guild about 5 years ago. The pattern is Melon Patch or Robbing Peter to Pay Paul.

The online show will end March 30 and Taryn even has prizes. So stop by her site and join the fun.

Till next time.....Happy Quilting.

The Passing of a Quilt Legend.

Jean Ray Laury passed away on March 1. She was a quilting pioneer and a really great lady. The Quilter's Hall of Fame has an excellent post about her. Check it out.
This is a close-up from her quilt, "Listen to Your Mother."

Till next time.....
