On Saturday, September 11, I visited NYC. Yes, it was a solemn day for people in the city and throughout the country. For people who know me, they know that I don't enjoy going into the city by myself. So when Karen (The Selvage Quilter)
and Victoria (Bumble Beans)
both invited me down to spend the day at their guild, I jumped at the chance.
lives close to me, she was my "tour guide". I just sat back and enjoyed, it was a beautiful day. Thanks for the ride, Karen!! We met up with Victoria
at her home for a lovely lunch and then onto the guild meeting.
The Chrysler Building. See some New York Beauty inspiration at the top?
The Empire State Building.
Now onto the meeting. The speaker today was Terry White
a very talented quilter who spoke about embellishing your quilts with beads.
Below are two of my most favorite quilts that she showed to us.
Whimsical, bright, and bold.
Then onto some show and tell. There were tons, but here are the most significant ones for me.
This woman used Victoria's technique from 15 Minutes Play
to create this wonderful quilt.
Here is my friend and host for the day, Victoria
, showing a quilt that she made to thank someone for giving her a Singer Featherweight!! She looks quite serious here, doesn't she? The quilt will be loved!
And this gorgeous quilt is Victoria's
Kitchen Sink Quilt. You may have seen it over at her blog, but it is spectacular in person. And big too!
And here is my lovely tour guide and friend Karen.
She is showing off this beautiful quilt that she designed for the guilds BOM. You should be able to find the block on their BOM page of their website by clicking here
. The quilt is beautiful in person.
Stay tuned for Part 2, where I will show you some of the sweets that were purchased!! YUM!!
Until Next Time...
