The Quilting Year Begins…

The lovely Tuesday quilt group met this morning at Lynda’s…always fascinating.  She has with an eye and a sensibility close to my own.  She has new quilts, collects old weird quilt tops that maybe have something quirky about them, and makes interesting combinations…always.

Here’s what we were looking at today…her own quilt on the bed…I don’t know the pattern but I think it looks like geese in a formation!

As we were leaving I saw a quilt that looked familiar…I had photographed it at a quilt show a few years ago…before I knew Lynda.  I asked her if it was hers and she said no, but she had liked it too so she got the fabric and made a duplicate EXCEPT, the other maker had lined up the house and tree squares evenly, and she didn’t.  When I came home I found the other quilt…here on the left and Lynda’s livelier version on the right…

  1. The quilts ate so,so lovely!! The quilt with long ties, I wonder if someone forgot to cut them off…. I like the many different pieces though. The maker must of attacked her scrap pile. 🙂
    The pincushions are cute!

  2. So interesting,
    the quilts are lovely….(but oh those pincushions!). I love that there are still people that treasure the old quilts, and take the time to make new ones. And that you take the time to share! Thanks Bonnie.
