Let me tell you about a wonderful quilter who had numerous excellent quilts at the show. She is also in the same Jo’s Little Women’s group as me at Cabbage Rose. You couldn’t meet a nicer, more talented woman. In addition to the Celebration of American Life I showed you in the last post, Billye Olson had this quilt as well.
Lulu’s Country Cottage includes appliqué and embroidery
Billye showed several others as well, all beautiful but I somehow managed not to get any other pictures of her quilts. Uh-oh.
How about this blue ribbon winner, Amazed, made by Susan Bancroft and quilted by Susan Corbett?
It was a wedding gift for her son and daughter-in-law. Wow, what a beautiful gift!
Now, for a look of some quilts that appeal to my 19th century reproduction fabric leanings, here is Charleston Harbor made by Sandra Hardin and quilted by Sheri Mecom.
Cheddar and Blue made and quilted by Sharon Bowman, inspired by a Jo Morton pattern.
My Old Kentucky Home made by David Mowrey and quilted by Susan Corbett.
On the home front, my mailman brought me so many goodies the last couple of days. My orders of 60wt. Presencia thread and Jo Morton and Judie Rothermel fabrics came in, now I just need to sit down and sew.
