30s Quilt Exhibit

My local quilt shop, Capital Quilts, is having a little exhibit of quilts and other items using 1930s reproduction fabrics.  I entered two things, a mini quilt sampler and a clutch purse made from hexagons.  I got hooked on 30s fabrics many years ago and have never tired of them.  I even made a queen-sized Trip Around the World for my bed (which I would have displayed but it is terribly worn out.)

If you live in my area, check out this fun exhibit and vote for me!

Churn Dash Baby Quilt

I machine-quilted this Churn Dash quilt.  It is baby-quilt size, 36"x36."  It was so much fun to make and I may have set a record because I made it start to finish in 2 weeks.  I often like to "work small" so this was definitely a departure, making 12" blocks.

We had a wonderful 4th of July weekend in Wisconsin, visiting family.  I brought some knitting along but worked very little on it.  Too busy having fun!  Tomorrow I am taking a wool applique workshop through my quilt guild.  Looking forward to it!
