More Traditional Quilt Content
All of these quilts were made by my friend Cindy. As you can see, she goes for the dark, warm colors and the primitive look. Of these quilts, I like the top one the best. Although the colors are subdued, the fabric is brushed cotton and is very cozy. It will be great next winter for those cool rainy days. The stitcheries in the second quilt are all angels of some kind. Cute and charming.
I have had so much fun with these women over the years, we even travelled across the country to go to the Paducah show together. We may or may not do that again, but we had the time of our lives. We've also been several times to the Road to California show. We meet once a month, supposedly to sew, but laughing and eating sometimes take priority. Every year we draw names and make a quilt for that person to exchange at our Christmas party.(Check out the December 2005 archives to see last year's exchange).We have a variety of tastes, but our delight in fabric and quilting holds us together.
