I again participated in Lori's doll quilt swap and today I received mine! I received this adorable doll quilt from Pat Riley from Janesville, WI. Thank you so much, Pat! I just love it.
Here it is with Albert on his doll bed. Albert was my Mother's doll and the doll bed was made for me by my Grandfather! You can see more about Albert here.
Another picture of Albert with his new quilt! He loves it too!
Pat also sent me this pretty pin!
I found out that Pat lives in Wisconsin and owns a quilting retreat, Prairie Hill Retreat! It looks like a wonderful place for a retreat. You can find out more about it here.
Lori, of Humble Quilts, has been an inspiration to me for quite some time. Since I'm involved in a quilt guild here in McMinnville, OR, and Lori lives in Oregon as well, I decided to see if she could come to my quilt guild meeting to give a presentation, and she agreed! I've been following her blog for years and have met with her in person a couple times as well as having participated in a few of her doll quilt exchanges and sew alongs.
This is an invitation for anyone in this area to come to the meeting of Piecemakers Quilt Guild on May 8, 2017 at 1:00 PM where Lori will present her program on Seasonal Quilts. We meet in the Brookdale Senior Living Town Center at 775 NE 27th Street, McMinnville, OR on the 2nd floor. If you have any questions you can email me from my "About" section.
Lori's blog, Humble Quilts, is very active with almost 2,000 followers and at their insistence she now hosts a Humble Quilts Facebook group with 870+ members. The blog has been highlighted in Quiltmania magazine.
Her online quilting activities have kept her busy for the last few years. She has hosted doll size quilt swaps with quilters from all over the world and lead many successful and fun quiltalongs, reproducing antique quilts in small versions. These group projects motivate other quilters to stay on task with a specific pattern and/or encourage quilters to explore and work through their own idea and create unique projects for themselves.
We would love to see you there!
