Here are the quilts that I took on the 11/16/16 DOQ Road Show, rescheduled due to the Thanksgiving Holiday...
Sunflower Wall Hanging, purchased at a DOQ Quilt Show a number of years ago. Couldn't resist supporting the guild:
Leaves of Fire, fabrics purchased on my first trip to Las Vegas and blocks made in a Thangles class at Quilting Possibilities nearly 20 years ago. Machine quilted (by me) using a paper template to sew through:
My very first "quilted" jacket, affectionately called the Big Bird Jacket, due to the bright yellow "accents" that somehow took over:
My Snowman Jacket, made according to a pattern made specifically for me. The red "accents" needed to be narrower to avoid it being renamed my Flag Jacket. On top of that, the made-to-me pattern DIDN'T FIT!! Ultimately, it was reassembled to enjoy during the holiday season:
Antique Quilt, supposedly made by my great aunt Ira. It is a tied quilt of unusual construction:
Another Antique (tied) Quilt...
With an obviously antique print on the back:
Antique Double Wedding Ring quilt top, purchased to practice my machine quilting. Never found the time or inclination to quilt it:
Antique Apple Core (Double Hatchet) Quilt, purchased in Paducah, Kentucky at the AQS Quilt Show in 1995:
After my Quilt Talk, the residents were entertained by Helen Wolfson, a local hammered dulcimer player:
Antique Honeycomb Quilt, purchased as a top in Monroe, Georgia and later machine quilted by a California quilter and bound by me:
I hope you enjoyed seeing the quilts that I shared. It was a lovely morning and I am happy to be able to represent the Durham Orange Quilters Guild in this way.
Until next time...
Air those quilts!!!
