Betty with her SEW pretty lap size quilt. What a FABLOUS colour combo! We say, "JOB WELL DONE, BETTY!" Doesn't this quilt just bring on a BIG smile!!
Oh my, Arlene!! Bright and cheery and so very vibrant, all with a hat to match!!!! Yes indeed. Arlene's hat is made with the same fabric she used in her quilt. GORGEOUS!! I'd say that's a trip to HAPPYTOWN!
Ohhh Rena! Your fabric selection is perfect!!! What a gorgeous quilt!! You've got a beauty on your hands here!!! Workmanship perfecto!
We need to put this one in perspective for all you blog readers.
This is Wendy's VERY FIRST QUILT! HOLY DOODLE! MOTHER OF HALF SQUARE TRIANGLES! Move this gal to the front of the class! All while wearing her "Inspector Sure Lock" hat.
Kathy told us the air was blue when she was putting this puppy together, but we're breathing in nothing but clean, fresh air looking at this stunner! LOVE the colour combo, Kathy!!! Very well done!!!
WOW, LEAH! This turned out beautifully in our humble opinions! You've got a real beauty on your hands!! Great job of it!!! Really and truly, GREAT JOB!
Crystal has a stunner on her hands. Look at those gorgeous colour combos. Crisp and clean all the way! More quilt love happening here! You just feel good looking at this one!
It's like Wendy knew the quilting trends for 2014 when she picked the fabrics for this gorgeous creation! Our Pittsburgh travellers came back saying yellow and grey is big this year! We salute Wendy for being a real quilting vanguard!!! Remember, Wendy made her fabric selections wa-a-a-a-y back in September 2013. Follow this quilter to know what the future holds!
Here's THE BACK of Rosemary's quilt. Seductive minkie fabric with a label to beat the band! Doesn't the character look like the quiltmaker? AND let's not forget to mention the hat. The ribbon embellishment has all of the words from a particularly moving moment in the story (tearing up here in Severn Twp.) embroidered on it. All of the words. We say CLEVER, CLEVER CLEVER! But wait for it....
WOWZA! WOWZA! WOWZA! And look at the other side of Rosemary's hat. Yes, sireeeeeee! You've got that right. It does indeed match her stunning quilt. Takes your breath away really!!
And last but not least, Lorraine's quilt!!!! The work that went into this would floor even the Trojan Warriors! Are you wondering what is on the front of this beautiful quilt? Well, let's show you right now!
Why it's Esther Pringle herself. The entire story has been told in this incredible applique creation! I know... I know.... I'm feeling a little faint too. Mind boggling!!! Lorraine felt she wanted her quilt to tell the whole story and she succeeded in leaps and bounds! The workmanship is utterly breathtaking!
No moss grows under the feet of any of these quilters!!!! ALL OF THE QUILTS WERE BEAUTIFULLY MADE AND NOT A BAD ONE IN THE BUNCH. GORGEOUS WORK LADIES!!!!
Here we all are after the lemonade and cookies but before the Scotch! Yes, Lorraine's quilt HAD A WEE BOTTLE OF SCOTCH ATTACHED! NOT GONNA TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT!
CONGRATULATIONS LADIES!!! JOB WELL DONE!!!! WE HOPE YOU JOIN ESTHER PRINGLE ON HER NEXT BIG ADVENTURE STARTING IN SEPTEMBER OF 2014!
A BIG THANK YOU to Paula for all the great photos!!
