The Quilter: Quilting with Malke

Sorry for the delay, and it’s been a while, but here are more stuff from our Vermont Quilting Trip!

Our group in Woodstock where we all picked up some very cool fabric.

A quilt show in a trunk.  This is the background story:  while at the Shelburne, Madi became friendly with a perfect stranger who also happened to be a quilter!   She took us to see the covered bridge and than showed us the quilts she had in her trunk because she was having a one woman show!

I just came back from a great two day trip to the Shelbourne Museum in Vermont.  We went for and saw the famous Dear Jane quilt and were suitably impressed with it in person.

Of course, what is a quilt trip without going to quilt shops. We went to Woodstock Quilt Supply and had Bob all to ourselves. It’s a very modern quilt shop with many Kaffe Fasset and Kona Bay fabrics. Tala Quilt Shop in Vermont was another stop and how different this was! Very quaint with overflowing shelves of Reproduction fabrics, Moda and Batiks.

Vermont has a thing about Mooses and they were everywhere. Unfortunately  we couldn’t stop to take pictures of all of them, but this is me with the “Covered Bridge Moose”.

I absolutely love Laura Wasilowski’s song about the tomb of the unkown sewer, so I took a picture of one in front of the Shelbourne museum.

The group photo is of Claudia, Joyce and Madi in the Tala Quilt Shop. You can see how crowded the shelves are. Glad to be home but already planning our next trip.

At the store, we started a Dear Jane class.  Although we had only six people register, we all became dedicated Janiacs, and we are enjoying every minute of it.  I, in particular, took off with those little cute blocks and I am making, or trying to make, two of each in different colorways to make them the same but to look different.

I’ve made quite a few but not nearly all of them.  Anywho, we dicided that it would be fun for all of us to go to the Shelburne Museum to see Dear Jane up close and personal.  A two day trip to Vermont in the Fall would be fun anyway.

Tell you all a bout it when I get back!
