Quilt Show

One of the events at the Grotto 100-year celebration was a quilt show held in the church. There were so many beautiful ones...old and new.

I had never seen quilts displayed this way before.

This pink and green version of Grandmother's Flower Garden was my favorite. It was entirely sewn by hand. The green background is hundreds of individual pieces, not a solid one. I've put this pattern on my list of designs to try. I can almost guarantee I won't make one as big as this, but maybe a wall hanging will be in my future.    

Seeing these beautiful works of art has once again gotten me in the mood to sew.

100th Anniversary of the Grotto

The Grotto of the Redemption is 100 years old this year. This past weekend there was a celebration of this remarkable landmark in my hometown.
No celebration is complete without a parade!
