First Friday

The February show at Quiltworks in Bend was held last night and the featured quilter was Lori De Jarnett who some of you may know from her blog, Humble Quilts.

Lori has a wonderful collection of vintage reproduction quilts.   I told her I wanted to take her picture next to her favorite quilt and she picked this one.   She said she made it after seeing a picture of one in a museum in Lancaster, PA.  



I'll just let you enjoy these gorgeous quilts.  
















And last, but certainly not least, this is Lori's Dear Jane quilt.   In my wildest dreams I can't even imagine making one.   Stunning!


Lori's quilts inspired me to buy more Civil War reproduction fabrics and guess what?  The shop was having a sale!   Woo Hoo!

If you have any questions about any of them, I'm sure Lori would love to hear from you. 

The group display was our Woolies group.   I'll show you those pictures tomorrow.  Way too many pictures for one post.  

Hugs, Anne

Anne, you are so fortunate to have several quilt shops near you. We have one. Everything else is a day trip. Isn't it amazing how inspiration can strike when looking at a beautiful quilt?
