Revised October 26, 2000
Now that I have a digital camera, I'm going to try to document special events with friends and some of my travels & adventures.
This is the Maltese Cross cabin in Medora, North Dakota. The cabin belonged to Theodore Roosevelt before he became the 26th president of the US. I visited the cabin while I was teaching for the Badlands Quilters Retreat in Medora during mid-October 2000.
Here's Mary Peard with her newest quilt in process. She used the preprinted muslin that had an off-center log cabin design. Altogether, she had to make 64 blocks for this quilt! Whew!!
Here's the whole quilt! Mary has started piecing the blocks together - that's why there's space just below the first row. She's piecing four of the yellow/white log cabins together to form a bigger block. The idea was for a high school sport to be pictured in each of the white areas, but that will require some thinking to accomplish.
My friend, Kitty Pippen, is a member of the Annie Star Quilt Guild in Chico, CA. Her new book, Quilting with Japanese Fabrics, just came out! Mary Peard, Mollie Hall, Bette Lee Collins and I decided to go down to the Guild's meeting on July 6th and see Kitty. She had come down from Lake Almanor with a friend, who helped her sell books at the meeting.
I took the picture of everyone around Kitty, showing off her book! We made a visit to Honey Run Quilter, the quilt shop in Chico, had dinner and then showed up at the guild meeting. Met old friends and made new ones - we even brought quilts for show and tell.
Here Kitty and I together - Bette Lee took this photograph - I think she's sold on the idea of a digital camera!
These are the TNT's, the small quilt group I that I have been a part of for over ten years. Some are founding members like myself, others joined along the way. We all enjoy getting together and sharing our quilting. This picture was taken at my house at our 1999 Christmas party.
