The Lincoln quilts were a challenge that I did with my 2 friends, Jill and Susan McD. We celebrated the 200th anniversary of his birth. It was such fun to have a themed challenge, I'm ready for another!
Jills, "And Malice Towards None" (not judged).
Susan's "Lincoln blogs" (hand quilted, and that is his signature)
and my, "Remembering Abe".
This is Jill's fabulous quilt, "Circa 1880".
I love what she did with the border edge here - very cool
This is a stunner! Look at the edge - beautiful!
Susan H's Wickersham quilt called "Stella" (hand quilted)
What lovely story. Susan Z. made the top and gave her to her best friend, Barbara B for her birthday (a big one). When Barbara opened it at a guild dinner she cried, we all did! It is lovely and titled "A Gift of Friendship".
Margaret's (our quilt show chair and hero) beautiful quilt, "Down on the Farm".
My completed "Passage to India". You can't see it here, but it has over 600 Swarovsky crystals and embroidered mirrors. To my great honor, it received Margaret's quilt show chair ribbon award.
My "Whooville" quilt. How nice that the judged recognized liberated piecing and ribbon matches the quilt :)
And finally, I can't resist adding this photo of me and Susan H. In some odd way her shirt matched my skirt, sort of
So, I have a new profile photo because I had to send a photo of myself with a quilt show entry. I have one word to say about setting up and taking my own portrait; awkward.
Have a fun weekend and I'll be back with part 3 soon!
