TOO Much Fun…

Kate invited me along to her quilt group this morning, and what a fun group they are.  A variety of ages, a variety of interests, and very welcoming.  Our hostess was Linda whose entire house is a quilting treasure trove…here’s a brief tour…she collects buttons…


including this cute as a button pup named Buttons…


and her house is full of quilts…her own and antiques…



and her sewing room, like any good studio, is packed with raw material and tools…

she saves strips too thin to sew and uses them for gift wrap….

and uses the selvages…(here a sewing machine cover)…

Of course we got around to show-and-tell…Bernice has just finished a quilt top for her great granddaughter…


and is working on a piece using hexagons…

  1. ohhhh if I lived around there I would definitely try to fish an invite from you to this group…looks like so much fun! Buttons!!

  2. This DOES look like TOO much fun. And very inspiring! I really like the selvage quilt. How very clever. Keep enjoying, Bonnie!

  3. You had me at the word quilt. I love, love, love quilts and the art of quilting. I agree, it looks like so much fun. I taught my daughter how to sew and her first quilt was the hexagon too. Love the use of her strips for gift wrap, great idea. Thanks for sharing!!
