Just a quick blurb about the upcoming AQSG (American Quilt Study Group) seminar in Manchester, NH. Please see further information (here).
I joined in AQSG 1985 and discovering the wonders of this fabulous organization at my first seminar in 1987. It was such a thrill to meet so many people who felt the way I did about quilt history. This will be my first seminar since 2007 and I can hardly contain my excitement!
There will be a silent auction and a very entertaining live auction with the effervescent, Julie Silber as auctioneer. It is always a lot of fun.
This is the quilt I sent this year.
Surprise – it is a potholder quilt! It is made of vintage feedsacks both front and back. There are hundreds of different prints in this one, including my very favorite cowboy prints. Because I try to use some sort of cooking term in my potholder quilts, I have named this one “A Baker’s Nine”.
I hope to see many of you there. I am going with my friend Cyndi (Busy Thimble) and we would love to have a "bloggers lunch" to meet up with old friends and meet face to face with new ones!
