Quilt talks-- I will be giving two more talks about doll quilts, crib quilts and their history.

If you are interested in doll quilts and crib quilts, antique quilts, and new quilts, you may be interested in the lecture/trunk shows that are coming up:

  1. The first one is in Ottawa, KS. on October 19th at 7 pm. for the Sunflower Piecemaker's Quilt Guild at the Westminster Presbyterian Church, 401 W. 13th St.

  2. The second one is in Topeka, KS. on November 10th at 7 pm. at the Women's Club. This is for The Kansas Capital Quilter's Guild.

I have antique and new quilts to show, and I really enjoy talking about the quilts. There will also be some patterns/kits available.

Columbia Mo. Quilt Guild

I have been invited to speak in Columbia, MO. on June 6th at the Booneslick Trail Quilters' Guild.

I will talk about doll and crib quilts, some history, and show a trunk show of antique
and newly made quilts. I am looking
forward to making some new quilting
friends in Columbia!

I've been working on doll and crib quilts....

I have been working on some new projects
and learning to use my Featherweight
machine. It is really fun to sew on!

The diamond log cabin shown represents
the 1880's period. It is
foundation pieced on fabric.

The whig rose quilts are my design. The one on the right is called "Folk Art Roses" and I have a pattern for it.

The one with a pink background is slightly different and I am working on a pattern for that one. The whig rose was popular in the 1840's to 1870's period.
