Last night our local quilt chapter had our annual tea party! We all brought dainty nibbles and our tea cups, and some of us even wore dresses and hats! Unfortunately I didn’t get any photos during the meeting, but I did take a pix of my teacup, which was very well received. Daughter Debra made it for me one summer in pottery class at Tech. I love the catepillar handle.
Our program was cancelled at the last minute due to hospitalization of a family member, so we went ‘green’ and shared various recycling tips. Our program chair showed the shopping bag she’s made, lined with a vinyl table cloth, and tiny tooth fairy pillows made from the top/batting/backing leftovers of machine quilting. (If you’ve ever had a quilt machine quilted, you’re familiar with the requirement to have an extra four inches all the way around so that the quilt can be securely fastened in the quilt frame.)
I showed my blue bottle photo-to-quilt project, and modeled the source of the dark and light blues: a sheer shaded blue blouse from ‘the other fabric store’ (Good Will), minus a few squares of material!
