I'm so jealous (in a good way) of Karen High of Sherman, Mississippi, a member of the Gum Tree Quilters Guild of Tupelo, Mississippi!
This is her very first quilt, and you should see how well she did on matching the points! Believe me, my points are still not that good, by machine or by hand!
Karen brought her beautiful first quilt for show and tell at the program Gordon and I gave almost two weeks ago in Tupelo, at the invitation of the Gum Tree Quilters Guild. Yes, I am still blogging from that fun gathering of quilters, and I have more blog posts to share with pictures from the event!
Karen still has to bind this quilt, but she has finished two more quilt tops since she made this one! Sharp points and prolific...yep, I'm a pale lime green jealous of Karen!
Standing next to Karen in the first picture is Cheri Weber, who quilted Karen's first quilt. Cheri used a 2009 APQS Millennium to do such a beautiful job, and the quilting patten she used was "Wildflower" purchased through Willow Leaf Studio. That was generous of Cheri to share that information, I thought!
Cheri, of Saltillo, Mississippi, is also a member of the Gun Tree Quilters Guild of Tupelo and the Piecemaker's Quilt Guild of Oxford, Mississippi. Cheri is one of my friends on Facebook as well as a friend from the Mississippi Quilt Association.
More beautiful quilts to share with you from that program that we gave in Tupelo to the Gum Tree Quit Guild, with members present from the Needlechasers Quilt Guild from Iuka, Mississippi, the Piecemakers Quilt Guild from Oxford, Mississippi, and the Golden Triangle Quilt Guild, from Starkville, Mississippi.
Our specific program was on the History of Quilting with heavy emphasis on Historic Mississippi Quilts.
Read about the mystery rose wreath quilt, now identified, here. We're still trying to identify these quilts made between 1860 and 1920, posted here. Then here is a new sidewalk art installation in downtown Tupelo that is not quite complete, so you are getting an early peak. Think Elvis!
