Malad Quilters

This week we traveled to Malad, Idaho and did a trunk show and stitch demo for the Oneida County Quilters. They gave us a trunk show of their own, a wonderful lunch and a ton of fun! We thank them for their hospitality. They do lots of good works and donate quilts to those in need.

Here's the whole group with Mary and I....



And their fund-raising raffle quit for this year (contact the Oneida County Quilts for tickets at http://www.southeastida.com/oneidacounty/index.html).....


And some of their individual quilts.....

This one by Ruth Thomas looks like it has lace inserts but it is simply tons of embroidery on a piece of gingham check...


These are antique (her grandmother's) hankies set into a quilt and sashed with satin


And this one is appliqued and embroidered by machine and for her son I think...

I can't believe you were that close to me. My neighbor's grandma is in that picture. Ha Ha!

As lovely as the handwork is, I must say, the picture of the group of women touched me the most. Neighborliness, tradition, intergenerational relating...there are so many important descriptors communicated through your sharing, co-creating and co-donating. Thank you.

What a nice post. I think it's wonderful that these women do such good deeds. The quilts you show are absolutely gorgeous.

Thanks for sharing and God bless.

Boy, did we have fun in Malad. I loved meeting all of those nice ladies. I'm also glad they enjoyed our tips about using scraps up on the backs of our quilts and realizing that they don't have to make HUGE quilts, lap size is just fine! Thanks for letting me be part of it- Mary
