|Carolyn's Strip Pieced Quilt|
|Showing off Adrienne's superb machine quilting|
Adrienne showed off the vintage quilt that her 92 year old friend had made. She struggled with some of the piecing but Adrienne's custom machine quilting always makes a showpiece of every quilt she does. It was fun to look at the fabrics in this quilt as their was everything from heavy cotton hosiery to a piece that resembled a girdle.
Carolyn brought some books and magazines that she no longer wanted and I took home Rosemary Young's The Civil War Diary Quilt. It is a bit more than I would tackle in a quilt but love reading the stories in the diaries written from 1861-1865.
Every quilt has a story,
