Parks & Recreation
I have to admit I am a Recreational Quilter...not a pro....not very prolific...but I have a jolly time wherever I quilt. Today my Quilters-in-the-Park folks shared some quilts they did in the past. The group has been together for 14 years. Ann (above) is one of the 7 charter members. Her applique always astonishes. She also is good at recycling. I believe she used her old flannel nightgown in one of her quilts.
Marge has also been quilting a very long time, but she isn't one to dally. Saw this tree skirt design on TV, couldn't wait to get a pattern, and drafted those trees herself. Her angles were a bit different, so she ended up with seven trees instead of the original six . Hey, it's a lucky number!
Lenore is my Quilt Mom....yes, I have one, too. She has kept me going when I was dragging. We made our Dear Jane quilts together. She has more energy and spirit...and she will be celebrating her 90th birthday next month! "Many, many more!"
And Jessica keeps me going, too. She is teaching me EPP...and believe me, I don't know how she keeps her patience sometimes. I am soooo slow....but what the heck, I'm just here for the fun!
