Horry County Museum's 20th Annual Quilt Gala

First a few historical quilts that were shown in the bed turning style to protect the quilts, so we only got to see half of each quilt.

An old fashioned yo yo

A magnificent postage stamp quilt in a round the world setting

A lovely old signature quilt where the signatures have been embroidered

A poison green and bubble gum pink ocean waves, beautifully hand quilted
  Some of the modern quilts, these two were hung side by side and my favorites:

This was part of the challenge called "Dressed to the Nines",the rules were : create a wall hanging using only black and white prints, solids or tone on tones only.

This is all thread work!
 Scrap quilts:
This was part of a talk on inch finished hexies scrap quilt.

Lovely strips made into a scrappy barn raising setting

Bonnie Hunter mystery patterns : " Roll Roll Cotton Boll"

" Easy Street"

What a great way to spend a rainy day :0) 

Happy Sewing,

Here we go again! Ice storm number 2

More ice ! This is not a good thing in a town without snow removal equipment,
last time it took 4 days to thaw, this time we do have warmer temps in the forecast in a few days.

The trees are heavy with ice and snapping and popping , large limbs are coming down!

some are breaking off and some are just hanging very low.

I better go sew while the power is still on.  Happy Sewing, Kim

Winter Projects

Little dolls for the NICU with my group the Sea Trail Grandma
where you can see all the many things that are donated to our area hospitals.

Lots of little dolls and I will make more in a smaller size for the tiniest of preemies.
Happy Sewing, Kim
