2013 Des Moines Area Quilter's Guild Show Quilt!


As our guild is celebrating 30 years, it was thought appropriate to have the theme Legacy of Quilting for the show quilt. We started the center of the medallion with the very first quilts made and worked our way out to the present. Included is Broiderie Perse, English Paper Piecing, Red Work, Pieced, Needle Turn Appliqué , Trapunto, and Paper Piecing. To finish the quilt properly for history it was hand quilted.

If you would like a chance to win this quilt, please email me for information. Tickets will be sold at the Des Moines Quilt Show in October. This is the AQS Show in Des Moines and the Des Moines Guild has our show within their show. It's wonderful if you happen to love quilts and shopping! Between the two shows there are about 800-900 quilts to see and lots of vendors! If you are in the area, please let me know if you are coming to the show. I'd love to meet you! Bloggers, feel free to share this info about our show October 2-5 at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines!


My stack of wool appliqué shapes is getting smaller! As soon as I am finished stitching the inner layers, I'll be adding them to the background fabric and stitching around the outer edges. It's been a relaxing project so far!

Have a great day!
