Bev, Dorothy and l took the drive to Castlemaine last Saturday for this months
meeting of the Castlemaine Applique Group.
Carolyn, one of the members, was our guest speaker, and she shared with us
her antique quilt collection, telling us stories of how
and why she collected the quilts she owns.
This first one is just a top, but its color and design is stunning.
This second one is also a top, Jacobs Ladder.
Carolyn hopes to one day hand quilt these tops.
Carolyn always wanted to make a double wedding ring quilt,
and now that she owns an antique one, she does not need too!!
This 9 patch was quite charming, and
from a distance has an Amish look to it.
This stunning red and white quilt caught my eye.
This quilt was just charming, an album block.
This was probably my favorite on the day. Love that red and black/grey.
Another lovely red and white. This one belongs to Carolyn's friend, Sharon.
Carolyn also brought 2 bears.
This one has been made using an antique cutter quilt.
This one was made using a school blazer. Quite charming!!
Here is a picture of our group in the hall we use.
About 50 members. We always have a great day!!!
l will be back in a few days with some of the quilts
from Show and tell. A few stunners to share!!!
Thanks for visiting.
