Bread is the best food! Images from the February LV Quilt Study Group

The February meeting of the Lehigh Valley Quilt Study Group was a real treat!  Sue P. brought in an amazing crazy quilt full of rayons and interesting images from the early 20th century:

Finding King Tut on the quilt was wonderfully fun and indicative of the craze that followed the discovery of Tutankhamun's Tomb in 1922.  But the back was just as much fun, full of feedsacks:

And my personal favorite:

Bill from brought some interesting quilts including this mid to early century patchwork:

And this wonderful quilt comprised of small baskets with enchanting patterned alternating blocks:

Sarah brought a southern quilt along to the meeting which we all adored:

Lorraine brought this beauty!  Thanks for letting me know!

Lisa shared these quilts and we loved this piece, despite the fugitive colors.  Somehow it made us all think Spring!

Jayne shared this crib quilt.  It was a quilt kit offered by Bucilla in 1959 and entitled, "Early to Bed."

Jayne is our redwork maven in the group.  She always brings
 fun pieces:


And...what we normally would have considered a clothespin holder with a new purpose!
Sue P. had brought along some pieces from a friend but we all went crazy for these stuffed toys featuring Snow White with ALL SEVEN of the dwarfs!!!  

Each of had the same reaction when we saw these:  absolute delight!
Next meeting is April 21st!  Please feel free to email me if you would like to attend!
