August quilt meeting

After a long summer weekend it was finally time for quilt meeting in our local quilt group.
This time we had Anne Marie Olsby visiting us to tell us about her crafty treasures that she has bought on flee markets and auctions.
She had brought with her old suitcases filled with embroideries, tablecloths and sheets.
Boxes filled with thread, buttons, laces and sewing stuff.
So much to look at .
Pillows made from old knitted pullowers (the dark blue one )
using a flannel shirt with the buttons on the back
A lot of collected embroideries turned into a beautiful quilt.
A quilt made from embroidered monograms
This quilt is made from an old embroidered tablecloth using fabric from duvet covers as borders.
And this quilt also has old embroideries, laces and small stitched tablecloths.
Thank you Anne Marie for giving us so much inspiration.  Think seveal of us is going to look for old treasures now.  Perhaps we all have some up in the attic.
Then there was show and tell.  Just enjoy the photos.
