So now my machine has a happy, attractive, homemade patchwork cover with some of my favorite fabrics, and I have a small, but completed, project!
Have a good day!

|BLUE: blue eyes, blue hat and blue around the mouth from Italian ice!|
|The tree in the background is a BEAUTIFUL quilt made by one of the congregants of our synagogue--|
Jeannette Kuven Orin (hopefully I spelled her name correctly)
|Rest in peace, sweet Harper--|
you were the most wonderful and sweetest dog ever.

Orion Star pattern (Quilt in a Day) in autumn colors
|This Seven Stars quilt, from 1900, was hand pieced, appliqued and hand quilted by Sarah Eloise White Cumming.|
|This is a hand-pieced and hand-quilted 8 Pointed Star made in 1957 made by Emma Chambers as a gift for her granddaughter's wedding. I did not take a close-up of the hand quilting but it is truly amazing!|
|This is a block from what I believe is a Borrowed Quilt that was constructed for a quilt challenge (Fairfield Processing) I love the use of tulle overlay to represent rays of light.|
|1 of 12 blocks in the beautiful Kimono Quilt made by the Bee Attitude quilting group, that was up for raffle (that I didn't win, but some lucky person did). Each of the blocks had a different color scheme with beautiful oriental/Asian prints. It was an amazing quilt!|
|This Grandmother's Flower Garden dates back to 1930 and most likely included fabrics from dresses and aprons that were also made by the quilter.|
|This was one of several hand pieced jackets by Ruth S. Galpin (1923-1988)|
|This was one of my personal favorites because I am a true nature lover. It is upside down because it is draped over a pew (and I forgot to rotate it!)|
The Bug Collector (2006) created by Mary Beth Stockman
|The Beach (2009)|
This quilted collage bag was machine pieced, quilted and appliqued by Eleanor Burke at a Connecticut Piecemaker's Carol Gee workshop. I love all the details-- including the footprints in the sand and real shells.

|Pigs in the Blanket (2000)|
Made by Diane Behrens as a keepsake for her grandson
|Cabin Pathways (2009)|
Machine pieced and hand quilted by Cathie Billings
I love the colors in this one!
|Double Wedding Ring (2006)|
Hand quilted and appliqued by Mary Anne Urquhart
|This Color My World quilt was created entirely from scraps by Sharon Dina in 2009. |
The pattern is a scrappy bargello by Bonnie Hunter.
Hope you enjoyed the quilts and the quotes! It was a beautiful exhibit.
