Today several members shared their quilting travel experiences with the group, followed by Show & Tell.
Rena Brinker showed us a quilt she has made for a close friend.
Jane Furguson showed sample quilts from Mary Cesar, a teacher from Hawaii, who will be teaching & lecturing here next month.
Below is the back of the quilt shown above, by Mary Cesar.
Irene Stewart brought a quilt that a friend of her son bought at an estate sale. It looked to be from the late 1800's, & was in pretty good shape.
The embroidery work on it was pretty spectacular.
You can click on any of the images to see a larger picture.
Pam Harris showed her on-line challenge quilt, inspired by a snorkeling trip (somewhere warm, I forget where she said, sorry).
The purple was painted batting. Yellow rusching made Brain Coral,
the fan fern was made from medical gauze painted pink, & the little orange anemones are Threadplay that she learned from Deb Hardman's class at Seams Like Home.
Marie Fujimura shared her Mountains & Anchorage city buildings with architecture inspired by the mountains.
Hidden in the quilting were lots of animals, birds, & a bicycler, fish & whale.
