September Alpine Quilt Night

35 comments
It is October! Can you believe it? Wedding in 10 days. Baby in ? days. And then before we know it - Halloween. Let's change the subject, please.Tuesday night was Celebrate the 30s at our quilt group. Here is the lovely and fashionable Paula all decked out for our fun time. This dress was her grandmother's. Paula's grandmother passed away at age 46. The dress was made but not hemmed before she died. So Paula finished it and kept it. Beautiful isn't it. This post will showcase our Show-N-Tell. I'll save the 30s quilts for another post.
We had a visit from the famous Jill Finley. Our Alpine area has several stars and Jill is definitely one of them. Her new fabric line is just out and she brought some fabric to share with some lucky winners. Before you know it she'll be at quilt market with her new quilts. Go wish her well at her blog Jillily Studio.
One of our local gals was a won a prize with her whole quilt machine quilting. It had amazing texture.

Speaking of stars. Alpine Fabric has some new quilts all ready for Market with their great fabric. There will be quite a few people representing from our area at Market.
Jody's mom brought this amazing quilt home with her and it has a great story. It was so fun seeing everything but the kitchen sink thrown into this quilt from wool to table cloth plastic.
Lovely basket quilt with a story. The baskets are really amazing.
Jody won a prize with her quilt too. It was described as beautiful, heavy and organic.
Love squares and I like all the fabrics in this quilt.

Lori's grandmother's quilts. Mostly never used and in mint condition.
My friend Judi's stunning quilt. I want to make this quilt. It is just a show stopper. So is Judi.
Cute watermelon quilt. Oh the days of summer are headed out. We had snow today. This picnic quilt won't see much use now until next year.
Original design. this reminded me a cross between cathedral windows and medallions.
Aniva's sweet baby quilt. I love little quilts.Aniva's daughter's quilt had a cute story. Aniva saved all these fat quarters that her daughter picked out years ago and managed to make them all work together in this sweet kitty quilt.
Sharleen's lovely sampler quilt. That yellow really tied them together.
Sweet scrappy hearts made for a daybed after the size grew too wide. Smart thinking.
Bonnie's cross road quilt. She just got it back from the machine quilter, Wren.
The wonderful Kim and her daughter Kenna showed this sweet brown and pink quilt.

Show-N-Tell was so fun. More later. When I don't know. I had a few moments tonight to make a post. I hope everyone is well. Hi to all of you and thanks for your sweet comments and constant support.

You know how much I love seeing the Show and Tell from That Alpine Group. Look how cute that Paula is in her grandmother's dress. And Judi and I started making the Criss Cross quilt together. She finished hers and mine is about 1/2 done and laying on a shelf.

Live Well With Judi said...

I just want you all to know in blog land, that not only does Nanette come to quilt guild meeting and take wonderful photographs and is able to remember everyone's name and talk about their quilt, but she also taught a part of the class on 30's fabrics. And, as always, it was done in typical Nanette style...with lots of fun samples to 'pet' and 'scratch and sniff'. She shared a wonderful childhood memory that I can completely relate to...she used to lay in bed as a child and stroke her quilt and study all the quilt squares and came to love fabric. Oh, how I used to do the same thing! It began a life long passion. I guess being an insomniac isn't all bad. Good luck with all the days ahead and savor every minute.
