Turning Twenty Quilt Show
I've been wanting to learn how to quilt for a long time. Until one night, I was blog hopping and discovered Donna's blog. Her enthusiasm is so contagious that I ordered a book from Tricia. I will attempt to quilt for the first time and Donna offered to help. Donna is also having a Turning Twenty Quilt Show and by participating you will be entered to win a prize. If you are interested, please go visit her blog for more info. She is giving away a lot of door prizes! Above is a quilt from my mother-in-law. I think this is a different kind of quilt ... I am not that familiar with quilting but you can tell there were a lot of efforts and times spent in completing the above.
This one is another quilt, again from my MIL ... in those days, they used old clothes, neckties, etc to quilt a blanket. I think this one was all done by hand as opposed to machine quilting. Both of the above are very old, we decided not to use them due to wear and tear ... they are a keepsake.
I am editing this post to add this link. This is a wonderful organization that quilts for veterans to show they care. Please check it out by clicking the link. Thank you.
