Applique Delight

 Yesterday was the day for my Applique Group meeting and I just love to go as I am always inspired by seeing the work of these talented quilters. Faye Cunningham (one of the winners of the Rajah Prize) is a well known quilter and teacher and she gave a talk about her quilt designing and showed just a small number of some of her quilts. She showed these first 2 quilts which she bought from the US. The dresen plate was quilted and she quilted the star top. Both are from the 1930s and are beautiful. I love quilts from this era and have several tops I need to quilt and finish too.
 The last two photos show some of the quilts from our Show and Tell. I took my Joseph's Coat with Buttons piecing and can't believe how quickly it is coming together and how enjoyable it is to piece. I will have more photos of progress very soon. I also finished off another QAYG quilt this morning so there will soon be photos on my other blog too.
Hope you're enjoying some stitching time too.
Hugs, Jan Mac

Yes the last photo is of a Di Ford design. I think known as Antique Wedding Quilt.
