This is a great organization if you like to study and learn about antique quilts you should check them out. This year they held their seminar in Cherry Hill, NJ. The next seminar is in Lincoln, NE. HHmm, great steaks and quilts, what could be better?
While I was not able to attend, some of my handy work did.
Along with my cupcaker buddies Jill and Susan, we supplied the seminar with the centerpieces.
We made the oak leaf and reel into a table topper about 14" square.
I made 13 of them.
I used a reproduction rubber stamp and a fabric ink pad to make the labels on mine. Yes, they are fused on. Kind of a cop out after hand stitching all those bindings... (or maybe because of it).
We did the quilting and the stitching at the same time.
It was fun laying them out. It would make a lovely quilt. Since we redrafted and made the pattern, I think I may one day.
coco gave them a spin and liked them.
The other component to our center piece were canning jars with 4 FQs of reproduction fabric in different color families; red, blacks, yellows, etc.
Now there are only a few things that would prevent me from going to a great quilting event; Rich, Andrew or Hanna. Last weekend I got 2 out of 3. Thanks, Andrew for watching coco!
The building of her (current) declared major.
We were lucky enough to be there for a broom ball game. Her team are "ice holes" pretty funny. A sport that is a mix of ice hockey, field hockey and soccer.
Hope you had a great weekend too!
