...and I haven't been doing any sewing, I thought I'd break into the archives and show you some quilts from our show last December. If you remember, I was heading down South for the winter the day after the show, so I couldn't infringe on my shoe-packing time to post them then. And then I got to Utah and just plain forgot about them, and here they've sat - on my camera, still, mind you - for almost eight months. Hey now, I've always said I'm easily distracted. This is not a secret.
Our little quilt group has dwindled over the years to a handful of quilters, really. I remember when we had a good strong group of thirty or so, which I realize must still sound so small to those who belong to large guilds of hundreds of women. But we were once thirty+ and going strong, and it's sad to see quilters move away or just stop sewing altogether. Unfortunately, new quilters have not moved into the mix to take their places and we have shrunk to a group that easily fits around a dining room table. But for those who remain, we are enjoying the camaraderie and continue to sew all through the long winter months. Every December, at our annual quilt show, it amazes me what we turn out. We are a mighty group of stitchers, that's for sure.
As you can see, we like our batiks here in Skagway.
Another finished Round Robin from our group last winter. The variegated purple stars were my round. I love the vine applique border that was added. It brought back the curves form the center block. These round robins were so much fun to work on.
More to come....
