Illinois quilters are THE BOMB!
I’m not sure if it is because the winters are nasty enough and long enough to drive everyone into quilting…or if there is something in this beautiful state that just produces such creativity, but I have been so amazed by the lovelies made by these quilters and their hands!
Have you EVER seen such tiny apple cores? I swear…we can NEVER EVER throw ANYTHING out – EVER!!
Here’s the full piece laid out to show progress:
These pieces are only something like 3/4” tall ….WOW!
More Tiny Piecing!
But this is no small quilt!
Holy baby 9 patch, Batman!!!
This quilt was made with 1” strips for 9 patches that finish at 1.5”. Hmmmmmmmmmmm……and you thought *I* was crazy?! ((Now you know why I love these ladies…I feel right at home here!))
The following photos are show and share from the last few days in Ottawa, both from the lunch hour at class time, and the show and tell at guild meeting. Enjoy!
