Quilt Guild last night

 Margaret Hornback presented a trunk show at guild last night.  The top picture is her 'My Kinda Girl' quilt she created.  She won a blue ribbon for this quilt.  The second picture is a quilt she made from her husband's clothes after he died.  She used the cuffs and collars of shirts, vests, suit coats, ties and labels off of his clothes.  She added his watches.  One of the watches was still running when she attached it.  What a wonderful memorial to her dear husband.  The third quilt is a dresden plate quilt she purchased at a garage sale.  Can you believe someone would sell such a beautiful quilt?!?  What an interesting way to set the dresden plates.  Margaret showed us so
 lovely quilts.  She plays the accordion, and created an accordion quilt in honor of her former music teacher.  She showed us the quilt her husband made from her scraps the last two months of his life.  He did a great job.  Margaret creates most of her quilts only using a pattern for the basic blocks.  Her colors and style are great.  She hand quilts most of her quilts.  She does a fantastic job  with her hand quilting.  There is so much detain in each quilt.  Margaret is one of our Quilts of Valor ladies in our area.  http://lolqov.blogspot.com/

This is going to be another busy, but fun week.  Quilt guild on Monday, Meals on Wheels on Tuesday, Sew-in on Thursday and shop hop on Friday.  Sew many quilts, sew much inspiration, sew little time!
