Hand Quilting with Friends and Antique Photos Women Quilting!



I quilt with friends every Wednesday from 9 till 12. We start by sharing quilting projects, visiting, laughter, and of course, quilting! 
 We have two quilting racks. About 12 attend every week. Our ages range from 33 to 96!
 We break at 10:00 for treats!
Then, back to work! 
 When home, I quilt while we  watch baseball or football!  
 This is what I'm working on now.
 Sharing a few photos of quilters of the past. 
 She looks cozy in her living room...
 and, she is on a mission...
From quilting to knitting?? 
 Wonder what she is thinking of
Maybe, something special, don't you think!!

Hope you are having fun with your quilting projects!

Hug's, Carolyn

  1. I used to quilt with a group like that on Wednesdays. I loved it! But I was the youngest and most of the women have moved away or passed away. We used to meet at our church and have two or three quilts on frames. Then we started meeting in homes. That was many years ago and I can still recall the things I learned from those women and the good times we had!
    Love the shot of you at your frame.
    And those vintage photos are priceless! :)

  3. How lovely. I don't belong to a quilters group anymore & sure do miss it. We didn't quilt quilts together but sat around tables, chatting, eating & working on our own projects. Hugs, xx
