Sisters of the Cloth July Class

Are you ready to see some quilts? Sisters of the Cloth met on July 14.
We started with our group Show and Share.
Kris is making little zip bags for work friends.

Jenny is making potholders.

These potholders are personalized with grands handprints.

Becky made her grand a T-Shirt quilt.

and this beauty.

Becky also showed us her pretty Dresden Plate.

Pat made this fun quilt for her son.

Trish designed this hexagon t-shirt quilt. You will see it hanging in the Iowa State Fair.

Margaret also had a little zip tote, this one with a gusset.
Deanna shared her quilt tote.

And Linda showed a comfort quilt she made for a gal in treatment/recovery.

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.

Pillow Covers

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.
