I live in a very small village with a shop, a school, a pub and a church and a whole lot of talent! Yesterday I went to an exhibition in the church by a group of 6 local ladies. This quilting group meets once a week in one lady's house and these are the results of their labours. I was truly amazed by their work sadly my little camera doesn't really do them justice.
The wall hanging quilt below depicted one lady's house etc and the work is very detailed lots of different textures too.
This quilt wasn't one of the groups makes but was made in the 1920's in Dakota, a very thin summer quilt, beautiful piece of work!
It has definately given me the push I needed to finish my cactus basket quilt started a long long time ago so watch this space! The one at the top of this post took about 16 years so there hope for me yet. They also had some fabric for sale, I thought it would be rude to come away empty handed :D
Now I'm off to do something very exciting indeed ............. todays the day I get my chickens! We went to choose them last night a brown Silkie, a black Maran and a white Light Sussex.
