|Deanna shared her quilt tote.|

|Vintage baby quilts are the theme of the day so Dian brought this one to share.|
|Here is the same quilt Dian replicated.|
|Kathy had both a little zip tote and a bag to share. Totes were on our minds today!|
|This one hand-pieced from little hexagons.|
|And finally, Carol showed us this quilt hand-pieced from just a little bit larger hexagons. For our group project, we are making larger hexies - 2". Guests worked on these as the enjoyed the quilt show and program.|
Next we viewed a trunk show of quilts that belonged to Marilyn Hanson. These are quilts made by her grandmothers. What a treat.
Beautifully pieced and hand-quilted masterpieces. We are so glad she shared them with us.
These two pictures are close up of the previous quilt. Spectacular.
A fun pieced back.
Then it was time for a snack break before our program. Cece Lewis brought her collection of vintage baby quilts to share. Also a treat! Some of these Cece has made, many she has collected and several she has found and finished or repaired.
|This is an example of a repaired quilt. Cece appliqued this silhouette over a large spot of sun damage.|
Wow! That was a lot of quilts to view in one day and we loved it! Next class, we will have a trunk show of two-colored quilts but the program by historian Katherine Wilson, will be about real life at an estate like Downton Abby.
