I was looking forward to sharing more pictures of great museum quilts from another DAR session this week.

This quilt was pieced by Janet K's mother. I need to get her name because she was a very good piecer and very prolific. These quilts are being quilted and finished in her memory.

I finally have a picture ( thanks to Jan ) of my Glittering Stars quilt! This was a 9 month class taught here at the Attic Window. I was so surprised and of course delighted to win a 1st place ribbon at the NCW quilt show!! Joyce Ross from Ephrata did a magnificent job machine quilting! I highly recommend taking classes, so much to learn and so many great tips not only from the instructors but others in the class. Besides they are fun!!
