Martha Bateman is our new guild president, and already she is doing a wonderful job.
Yesterday we had Show and Tell as part of our meeting. Because I took so many pictures I will show these in 2 parts.
Broderie Perse technique by Mary Walthers.
This technique is where you cut out a shape from another fabric and applique it onto a background piece.
Look how beautifully Mary designed the outside edges of her quilt.
Our guild is so large, I'm sorry I don't know the names of many of the people who brought Show and Tell.
She called it her "Wonder Quilt", meaning she wondered when it would be done. She finished it several years ago, and has been waiting for a friend to have the time to quilt it.
Our guild has a long arm group that meets together every month. Lately they have been experimenting with snippets of fabric as their background before they quilt on the long arm.
