Show and Tell!

Mary brought "That Damn Silk Quilt" so named by her Mom.

Pictures really don't do it justice.  It has the loveliest shimmer.

Chiska brought a partially put together Cathedral Window Quilt

We had a great demonstration of the Press and Seal Quilting method by Joyce.

She used this lovely quilt to show us how to trace the pattern on the press and seal
and then place it on the quilt.

She shared a tip with us:  
 If you make a knot in the end of thread
 that comes off the spool your thread won't twist and get knotted up.

Here is the Press and Seal applied to the quilt

Here is a sample of a quilted piece.

The pattern extended:

We also began talking about doing a day long quilt retreat in June.  
A chance to sew together at the Rectory.

See you next month on April 27 at 7p.m
