Last year at the local guild's show, held at the County Fairgrounds, there was a silent auction for lots of miniature quilts. I bid $23 on this little cutie, which included the stand, and won!
Below is a closer view. Love the cheerfulness of the 30's prints and the friendly pinwheels. Someone put a lot of work into this and I am really enjoying it. I have also hung other mini's and some linens on the stand for display.
I have not joined the guild that is nearest me because their meetings are on Tuesday mornings and that isn't friendly toward a working gal's schedule, but I love going to their quilt show and shopping the vendors and seeing all the quilts on display. One year there was a whole cloth quilt, all in cream, that the owner had titled "And Still They Complained". It was hand-quilted and the owner stated that even though she had used a single width of fabric each for the front and the backing, the ladies who helped quilt it still complained as if it were full of seams to needle through. I thought that was a funny story!
A special thank you to each of you who stop by and take a look at my little blog, and an extra thanks to those who comment as well. Thanks so much!
