Visiting an old friend

In a couple of weeks, I will be presenting a trunk show (my first ever) to our night time guild here in North Bay, Ontario, Canada (called Northern Lights Quilter's Guild) and my quilts have gotten the once, twice and thrice going over to determine which quilts will be assembled for the show.

Today, an old Baltimore style quilt (made in 2003) got pulled out of the holding basket in our TV room for dusting off in the dryer. I thought you would like to see just a few of the blocks and my hand quilting.  I would like to keep this quilt a surprise until the members see my show.

My quilt was laid over an ottoman for photo taking and suddenly I heard some rustling at one end of the quilt.  Someone crawled inside to make herself at home and settle down for a nice snooze.
Have a great day!

  2. Beautiful. And kitty approved. Must be a good one.

  3. Beautiful! I have just started making my first Baltimore style block and it is taking such a lot of work- you have my admiration.

  4. The blocks are beautiful, and your hand quilting looks wonderful!

  5. Very pretty. Nicely done hand work, both on applique and quilting. Looks like a sampler. If it is, I won't tell. ;-)

  6. Every quilt of yours must have a cat scan and approval. Lovely peeks of your quilt, I hope we get to see it after the trunk show.

  7. How exciting for you! Your hand quilting is wonderful hope we get to see the whole quilt after your trunk show!

  8. Lovely work! Wonderful about the trunk show too!
