February 18th Quilt Celebration!

Excitement is in the air!!!  The quilt show is just around the corner.  NEXT WEEK!!

So, we had another major quilt celebration evening.  So many beautiful pieces.

First, Theresa showed some Linus quilts.  The first is Called "Hugs for Heroes" and features fabric that was designed especially for Linus.  Isn't it darling?  It is Snoopy wearing all kinds of rescue personnel apparel.

The second is a softie!  Fun for pet-loving folks!  Here are both of them.

Connie shared her Jacob's quilt which she made for her daughter-in-law's father, whose cabin the Taylors use as a family.

Beautiful, Connie!

Toni shared three beauties.  The first is her Jelly Roll Rail Fence.  Isn't it lovely?  The colors are so wonderfully warm.

The second is her Block-of-the-Month, "Green Piece", which is a pieced star sampler and applique-in-wool.  I am so impressed.  I took a few close ups of the wool applique blocks.  Aren't they amazing?  The pear block has special significance for Toni because Virginia helped her with it and is the one who encouraged her to try wool applique.

Her third is a delightful hexi which she made for her mom.  She also made a flannel quilt for her dad, but he wasn't willing to give it up for her to show it to us!

Beautiful, beautiful work, Toni!

Geralyn brought Virginia's quilt to celebrate, as well.  It has had over 40 people work on it, from a 4-year-old granddaughter of Virginia's, to the oldest among us.  From its beginnings, such care has been taken on this lovely creation.  Thank you, Geralyn, for instigating this project and for your tireless efforts in getting it completed.  It's just lovely.

Happy Quilting!!!
