Pam Weeks' Presentation

Last night the Gilmanton Historical Society welcomed Author and Quilt Historian Pam Weeks for a quilt talk. The public was invited to bring in a quilt to show, too.

Here are two Civil War era quilts that are signature or friendship quilts that are owned by the society.

They are both in great condition.

Another view of one of the blocks.

The second society quilt was a basket quilt.

Pam brought several quilts out during her talk but none was prettier than this magnolia applique all hand quilted.

Meb, from the Sunshine Club that meets on Tuesdays at the Alton, New Hampshire Senior Center, brought in her 1880's unfinished top.

Although I do not have a picture of it, I brought my 1880's Log Cabin summer quilt. I learned that the date can be established from the appearance of so-called Garibaldi fabrics in their red and black.

It was a fine presentation!

Happy Memorial Day

Memorial Day was passed quietly here with a simple lowering of the flag this morning and then raising it up again at noon. We are truly grateful to all our veterans for their service to our country.

Friday quilters had fun projects at The Golden Gese on 22 Liberty Street in Concord, New Hampshire.

Laurie was hand quilting on her big and beautiful quilt.

Maureen was making brightly colored blocks.

Tammy was stitching embroidered quilt blocks in all the state birds.

Beverly was making a simple sailboat as a baby quilt.

Sue showed us her lovely three dimensional stars in the medium and the small sizes.

Here is a peek at the backs of the stars.

I worked on some giant 4-patches made from charm packs but forgot to take a picture of my progress.

Happy quilting!

Catching Up

A recent update on Microsoft left me unable to post on my blog so here are some Sunshine Club news.

Meb was showing us her pretty panel quilt.

 Here is the border.

Meb also did an applique piece that she is hand quilting.

The star border is lovely!

Meb did an applique quilt of hearts that is just beautiful!

Mary was working with the Accuquilt Go cutter.

Mary already has some blocks made.

Mary has lots of great ideas!

Sarah and Sue were tuning up Sue's machine.

Sue is almost finished with her applique owls. They are so cute!

As for me, I finally finished sewing my Kansas Troubles jelly roll top.

I got it trimmed and pressed, too!

Happy quilting!

May Day

Good weather has come to New Hampshire and my sewing groups were great fun!

 Down at the Golen Gese quilt shop, Maureen was working on her rail fence design.

This is so pretty!

The bright spring green really makes it pop!

Maureen also had a wonderful finish with one of her many patriotic quilts for service people.

The panels are beautifully framed in red white and blue fabrics. Good job!

Sue was making a heart shaped potholder that your hand slides into to protect your thumbs.

Bev had a nice bunch of microwaveable bowl potholders going. So cute!

There they are!

Bev presented me with a marvelous book of Civil War reproduction quilts. Thank you!

This will keep me inspired and busy!

Bev still has more work to do on her beautiful card trick blocks quilt but these are awesome!

Husband Wonderful is making good progress on my car's new exhaust system and I'm so grateful to him.

Happy quilting!
