Saturday morning, after strip club had finished, our Silver Thimble Club met in the classroom. Pat chased me down to tell me that there was a great photo op for the blog happening down there so, off I raced with my camera. This is what I found:
A huge pile of quilts. Actually, this is the final pile. Most of the quilts came out of a carry-on sized suitcase. It was, literally, like Mary Poppins' carpet bag. The quilts just kept coming!
And whose suitcase was this, you might ask? It belongs to this gal- Aleta, the queen of quilting. From the above Christmas quilt, to an embroidered Atlanta Falcons quilt....
She took a moment to allow Claudia to share her Honeyberries quilt...
then they both showed off their harlequin quilts..
Hey! That's not Aleta! No, it's Mona proudly sharing this quilt that her 7 year old granddaughter, Trinity, made. Grandma attached the borders, but the piecing was done by Trinity. A new quilter is born!
Off to the woods with Aleta's deer quilt,
And a break for Carol's Twinkie quilt. Cute!
A mammoth patchwork. I love the homliness of a patchwork quilt.
Carol snuck in yet another of her creations. I'll call this quilt Sweet Treats as I can't write the real name on the blog. It contains all of Carol's faves- Skittles, pretzels, cookies, Twizzlers, cupcakes, nonpariels, etc. I gained 5 pounds just looking at it!
Aleta was all rested up and ready to show off her quilting prowess.
I just have one question. Aleta, honey, when do you sleep?
