The Day before Election Day

Happy Monday

All I am going to say about the Election is Vote! I'm sure we will all be glad when the commercials are not longer thrown at us..


I recently was able to go to the quilt show in Aurora. My friends, Karen and Gloria and I have been going to this show for many years. I particularly like it because it is in historic Aurora and it is usually a showing of old quilts and even though there are new quilts, they fit in nicely with the old ones. There is an old log cabin called The George Steinback Family Log Cabin and there is a fire in the fireplace and cookies and it is a wonderful atmosphere on a chilly fall day. Here are a few of the quilts and a picture of the log cabin.

Marcia and her gorgeous Bird quilt...BOM from Sue Spargo. Spectacular   !!!


I want to have a class in January using Sashiko stitching and learning about "boro" and "Kantha". All beautiful stitching done with Sashiko thread. Stay tuned for more information.

My Thanksgiving cactus is coming into bloom. Pretty amazing.

Karla has done another picture quilt!

Judy finished this beautiful quilt just in time for the weather to turn cold. Good Job!!

Karla has found a beautiful way to express herself in cloth and wool and embellishments. Can't wait to see what she brings next time!

  1. You have a talented group of friends Betty . . and they have a talented teacher. Love seeing the projects and the Aurora show. That "barns" quilt must have been something to see. Happy winter stitching to you all.
