First a mini-trunk show from a friend in the audience. This woman reeks talent. You have seen her exquisite work before on this blog. Her color sense. I die. Here is what she had with her:
set of blocks. Click to enlarge. Don't they look old and somewhat like barkcloth?? Perfection. She said something about needing to make 66 more and that they would have red sashing. I vote for orange. But this girl knows what she is doing color-wise.
her Guild name tag. She said I didn't need to obliterate her name :-). Barbara is the one who teaches the excellent Big Stitch class (after you hit the link, hit ctrl-f, type in "big" and it will take you right to her class description).
On to the other trunk show:
this one has a cute border, see elsewhere, there's no way I'm going to try to arrange these photos in my deteriorated condition lol
Anybody who haunts antique shops has seen some unfortunate attempts at quilt "restoration" like this one
I think these are examples of old mends
