Good Morning Quilters!
It's May 2nd and I am looking forward to putting together the May Day Flower Basket quilt. It has been such fun embroidering all the baskets, and it is time to make the quilt top. I selected a solid green to be used for the alternate squares. I took a picture of the green with one of the baskets:
Did any of you receive a May Day Flower Basket on your door? It used to be a common gift for a friend.
I was away all last week at the Jane Stickle Quilt Retreat in Shipshewana, IL. Here is a collage of four of the quilts that were shown in the "Show and Tell" on Friday night:
The top left is the "Oh my Gosh!" pattern
the top right is a replica of a thirties butterfly quilt.
bottom left is part of an uncompleted Mrs. Billings Coverlet pattern,
bottom right is a quilt made with tiny, tiny bow tie blocks.
What amazing talent at this retreat!
Another beauty that I saw was this crib quilt that a friend bought at an antique store. Pat Jensen's find is made of very small diamonds, hand pieced and hand quilted. The closeup picture shows how small the diamonds are. Such a beautiful work of art, and Pat loves small pieces as much as I do.
