postheadericon Vintage Quilt Show

At the Battle of Byron last Spring, 2009, Comforting Quilters sponsored a Vintage Quilt Show in the museum section of the Byron Depot.  These quilts were so beautiful and carry a great deal of history for many families here in Georgia. 

Do you see a family quilt?  Leave me a comment and let me know!  I'll mark the quilt with your name.

Enjoy the show!

postheadericon Comforting Quilters is Saturday!

Come Learn a New Technique!

September has flown by too fast! I took a great trip to visit my Dad for his 80th Birthday the first of the month, and the remaining 15 days or so have simply breezed on through!

Mike and I spent the day at the Georgia National Fair this past Sunday. What a great day of fun and excitement. I actually had my first funnel cake and it tasted pretty good! Of course, my favorite adventure is browsing the art, photography, and quilts! What beautiful works of art! If you get the chance, you simply must put in at least an hour to do nothing to gaze to the heavens and see what creative minds these women have. Truly an inspiration!

While visiting a booth sponsored by a quilt guild in Perry, I learned a new technique for making quilts. It is the most excited I have been in a very long time, and realized that this was the ticket for comfort quilts.

This weekend, I will be showing you all how to make these fabulous, beautiful and quick quilts that pull the art of quilting together for all to enjoy!

Be sure not miss this! It will be a great day of sewing quilts for everyone!

Remember, we will not be meeting Friday night. Our scheduled business meeting will be at 9:00 AM Saturday morning, October 16th at the Byron Depot. We'll have the coffee on and provide a breakfast snack, so come prepared to learn, cut, sew and quilt!

Again, it is always nice to know who will be in attendance. Please take a moment and let me know if you will be there so we can plan our day!
