I can't believe it's June 1st already!
The Sunflower was chosen as the June block for the Shenandoah Valley Botanical Sew Along... found HERE. Above is my Red & Taupe version.
Also completed in May were a few more of my Dutch Treat blocks.
AFTERNOON - Day One of Colorado trip at Dawn's House
I had the distinct pleasure of meeting one of my favorite BLOGGER Friends!
Kyle Redente of Timeless Reflections drove to Dawn's house to meet everyone.
She is as lovely in person as reflected in her blog posts! She was such a joy to meet and to be with! I hope we will meet again some day!
Kyle is also an extremely talented Quilter!
This is Kyle's version of the "Noah & Matilda", Baltimore Album quilt.
The quilt top is gorgeous and her applique' work is stunning!
Kyle also brought her completed Yellow & White version of the Big Leap quilt. (from the sew along I hosted a few months ago) What a treat to see this finished quilt. It looks even more beautiful in person!
Dawn provided us all with an amazing quilt study lecture with emphasis on Hexagon quilts that she shared from her personal collection. All of the quilts were stunning beauties and covered an age range that spanned more than 2 centuries.
Dawn also provided us all with hand inked signature squares to fill out and swap.
How very thoughtful of Dawn to create these beautiful Signature square stampings for our group to exchange. What a fabulous souvenir and memento to take away from this very special day we all shared! I'm already contemplating ideas for making my Colorado Signature Quilt. Thank You Dawn!
wishing you all a Wonderfully Creative start to June!
