The past three days were spent at Grand Rapids, Michigan at the AQS Quilt Show. I enjoyed myself very much. One highlight was a visit to the Grand Rapids Public Museum on Thursday night to see some very old quilts. Here is some eye candy from that museum visit:
I stayed with my friend Joan, and took two classes. One was a 2.5 hour class on Drunkard's Path machine piecing. Here's a vintage small piece that Joan had at her house, and she let me take it with me to class, for show and tell.
Here's the sample I worked on in class (it's about 10 inches square):
I found the machine piecing of the curves very easy, and with no pins. It went very well, and I'd like to make more.
There wasn't a miniature quilt category at the Grand Rapids show - or else I missed it completely! I was surprised.
Hope you have had a good week, and were able to look at some quilts too, or work on some of your own.
