PIQF Reproduction Quilts

Happy November everyone! It's getting to be quilting time. Yellows, golds, oranges, browns and greens fill my mind and my eyes. Fall colors are warm and inviting. Fall foods are too.

I love the taste of pumpkin anything. I am a sucker this time of year for The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf's or Starbucks Pumpkin Latte. MMMmmmm. The first one I ever tasted was in Golden CO at the AQSG conference in 2005. It was a cool and crisp day and this latte was a taste of heaven on a fun day at the Rocky Mountain Quilt museum. Do you have foods that bring a good memory with it to you?

The quilts I'll show you today are filled with Fall colors and they just so happen to be made of reproduction fabrics. One quilt is made in French reproductions and the other American reproductions. It is Stunning. She has keen sense of color use in a quilt. Wow. Margaret McDonald made it and she lives, no, not New England, but Australia.

A quick note to close- this coming Thursday evening (5PM Pacific time, 7PM CST, 8 PM EST) Pat Sloan will tells us really how she balances all of the quilt business hats she wears with great success and how she keeps creativity flowing. She has written 19 books, has a P&B fabric line, her pattern company and she teaches all over the world, so how she has time is another mystery. Pat is lots of fun and full of energy. And she is courageous - as she is my first Woman On Quilts to be interviewed! Please join us on the telephone or listen through your website. There is no charge. Register here to get the log in link or phone passcode.

The next batch of pictures you'll get will be of arty and embellished quilts in the exhibit. One of the makers is going to be a Woman On Quilts in December!

May you have a happy Monday and wear a smile all day. Tuesday, get out to vote!

Thank you for stopping by to comment on my new blog! As a woman who has been a quilter for over 30 years, I'm especially interested in hearing more about the women who have quilted in the past and those who quilt today. I teach women's studies at a local university and it's clear that women's quilting has definitely mirrored the times and trials we've had to conquer such as suffrage! And yes! I voted! I hope everyone, but especially every woman, will take advantage of this opportunity that other women so long ago worked so hard to achieve!
