Dead Head to 30's Quilts

The January Show and Tell from The Nimble Thimbles Quilt Guild was quite
Diverse
.
Laura's quilts were a great example.

First up: A Grateful Dead tribute quilt Laura made from her husband's tee shirts, collected from a multitude of concerts they attended together.

Jerry Garcia would be proud.

When Laura presented this quilt to her husband at Christmas, he commented "So that is where all my tee shirts went!"

From Dead Head to 30's.
Laura's next Show and Tell was a circle quilt made from 1930's reproduction fabrics.

No one can say she is afraid to work outside her box.
When I asked Laura what fabrics she favors the most she responded "Batiks!"
Don't you love it when creative people are willing to experiment with every style of quilting?
I could learn a lesson here.

Laura's 3rd Show and Tell for the evening was another example of her diversity:
An embroidered Christmas wall hanging.

I'm really curious to see what the inside of Laura's house looks like.

Boy... what a stark contrast in quilts! She is definitely not afraid to step outside the box!
