Silver Threads


This past weekend, the Tewksbury Piecemakers held their annual quilt show. The show was titled "Silver Threads" to commemorate their 25 year anniversary. I'm thrilled to say that Ladies of Downton Abbey won Best of Show!


A member of the guild made the ribbons which incorporate the guild's logo.  It's absolutely beautiful. I will always treasure it. 

There were some gorgeous quilts at the show. I thought I'd give you a little peek into the rest of the show.


This is Gypsy Rose by Louise Lussier. Quilted by Norma Biggs. I love these colors!


This is Fall Flowers by Sue Pederson. Quilted by Laurena McDermott. Beautiful harvest colors!


This is Bali Wedding Star Quilt by Pam Marlow. Quilted by Norma Biggs. Love the batiks!


This is Hexi Garden by Debbie Grund. Quilted by Kathy Starling. I love the movement of this quilt!


The guild made a calendar for next year. These are the entries.


I particularly loved this July entry by Marlene Levesque. The piecing is very precise and the fabric is perfect for July!


Here's my mystery quilt which you have all seen before. However, the next pictures are all the same blocks from the mystery quilt pattern. The colors and setting are different. Have a look! It's amazing how different they all are!













You would never know these are all the same blocks. I love seeing them all together!


Here's the last picture. (Finally!) These are the baskets the guild raffles off. There were a total of 12 baskets. I'm sure the lucky winners just love them! They look gorgeous all together. 

We had a wonderful show. Can't wait for next year!

Slab Runner Quilted

Here's my slab table runner. I'm enjoying the process of sewing down the binding. It's a great excuse to watch television! ...
