A Fun Day at Genesee Valley Quilt Club

The posts have been a little sparse lately as I keep having problems with uploading of pictures. I think it is all done and then I get a server error. Grrrr. I think it has to do with doing it at a busy time of day and it is probably timing out but very annoying. So with some luck I will get the remaining New York pictures up and then some of quilt club today which was fun.

Priscilla Kibbee had a sale table and it never ceases to amaze me that I always find new things that I have to have. As I am making a jacket next week in her jacket class, I picked up a few odds and ends to put on the jacket which will be primarily blacks and reds. It needed a focal point though so hopefully I will have found it!!

I also volunteered to help with the Programs part of Genesee Valley for next year (a behind the scenes position for sure). With a whole team working the programs, it shouldn't be too bad.

I only took a couple of pictures today but had to share this one of Teddy Ahern's chicken quilt. Teddy is a champion machine quilter and that is how she did all the chickens. She then used fabric crayons to shade them in. It is in honor of one of her pet chickens who was killed by a hawk in her yard.

I also loved this one that Pam Peet did and had quilted by Valerie Schultz who is also a wonderful machine quilter as well as President of our club. If you double click on the image, you might be able to see the detail in the light areas.

If possible would like the recipe for the SusanBAnthony quilt. Looks wonderful in red feathered stars but directions/dementions could be helpful. Looks as though you all are having creativity as we do here in Michigan. VeliaLauerman,108 North st.,Hudson,Michigan 49247 9705

I was a guild member many years ago. My elderly aunt has moved in with us and wishes to pass on her quilt library & other items. Can you help me contact the newsletter editor so that I can advertise this to the entire guild? Thanks for your help. Leslie Smith 810/252-0356.
