For Katney

We have a quilting group that meets in Linden twice a week and once a month. Last week they had a guest speaker and some quilts on display; I took these two photos as examples of their marvellous work. I am in awe as I hate sewing so much I would rather discard a garment than sew on a button.

Those are awesome, Liz. They remind me of historic quilts that I have seen that were made in the eastern Kentucky mountains.

BTW, history says that the earliest settlers in that part of the U.S. were indentured servants from the British Isles who got tired of their indentured status and “escaped” west over the mountains from the state of Virginia to what became the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the 14th U.S. state.

I would not have the patience to sew quilts and yet I used to do a lot of sewing, even take it in to make a few pennies when the girls were little. Those quilts are beautiful...people are so creative.

Wow! I love that bottom one! I don't think I could make one, though my grandmother had several.

Amanda said...

Those are gorgeous (sp). I'd love to make one - have no idea how to though!

Katney said...

Oh, those are lovely Liz! I avoid applique like the plague (though I have actually taught it) and would really have to study that first one to get the layout figured out. I really like it. Interesting, too, that some quilters will always use very similar colors. Or maybe she had others in different sorts of colors and these were the ones that appealed to you!

In Awe of such handywork and talent!

I'm always in awe of quilters and sewers, too! When my girls were little, I made them lots of clothes and enjoyed it. But now, not so much. I find it hurts my neck to bend over the sewing machine and if I need alterations, I take whatever to the tailor.
