Here is my quilt: Thane of Cawdor (from Macbeth) made in 2006. Many of these blocks were swapped with friends in Illinois.
Garden State Quilters, Barbara presented me this copy of a piece created by her grandfather, Stan Bower, in 1930. When she was in grade school these were passed out to every student on Presidents Day. I am overwhelmed to have such a lovely gift. This is Hand Lettered folks! I intend to frame and display it in my home.
link to her blog where she posted about a special civil war quilt and go here to read about her grandfathers Lincoln artwork.
Last Saturday, the American Quilt Study Group, New England Region, had a study day the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, MA. It was a wonderful day of civil war history. We enjoyed a lecture, admired the special Sesquicentennial quilt exhibit and shared show and tell. We also discussed the 2017 AQSG Seminar, which will be in New Hampshire.
Here are lots of photos from the day - I am so sorry that I have not included the names of those photographed.
It was so wonderful to have some of the quilt makers in attendance to tell us about their quilts.
Cynthia of wabi-sabi quilts!
It was a great day filled with new quilting friends and lots of inspiration.....then this happened. The Barb Mobile needed a new battery - STAT. My hybrid was totally dead.
I have been overwhelmed with kindnesses! Thank you Nancy, Debbie and Lori
Finally - a special thank you to all the GSQ members who came out for dinner, the lecture and workshop. It was a treat to see so many quilt friends!
