“Quilt Talk”

I saw a post of Facebook today that reminded me about the Quilt Alliance auction for 2017.  The auction is to benefit the Quilt Alliance

The deadline is July 3rd so I had to get started on it today.       The theme this year is “voices”    and the quilts need to be 16 inches square.

Here is mine which I am calling “Quilt Talk”   (need to bind it yet)

This  is leather, quilted on the Singer 66 treadle.
In addition to an online display of the quilts, the collection will be exhibited at 2017 Alliance events, including the Not Fade Away conference on July 15 in Herndon, Virginia, the Quilters Take Manhattan fundraising event in New York City on September 19, and in the Alliance booth at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, November 1-4. Additional exhibit venues may also be added. All quilts will be auctioned online beginning November 13, 2017 to benefit the Quilt Alliance.   I’ll post a link for the auction when that is set to go ( there will also be online voting I think)

Teddy and I took some more garden pictures today . (click on pictures to enlarge)

Maybe tomorrow I will have time to start that new quilt I am planning .

Happy Quilting

    Holy smokes, the garden is looking awesome! The arbor with the two clematis is jaw dropping. And I love the Veronica/gomphrena/Stacey’s combination too. Don’t know when you sleep?

    The mini leather quilt is really impressive. How can you get that much detail in leather? Wow.

      Thanks …..the clematis really do well there…I think it is the real star of the back yard. the combination of those 3 worked out great the Stachys was taking over that whole space so I pulled out about 3/4 of it this spring and it seems about right now

      leather is so fun to quilt……but you have to find thin leather……

      Hope all is well for you and your garden

    PS My phone does not know how to spell Latin names. You know I meant Stachys.

I have missed reading your posts and so happy to see your work on the machine and the in the GARDEN! my goodness. You put mine to shame.

    It’s magnificent. And the garden too. And Teddy as well. (Want to stay in his good books, must give him his due.)

  14. Love your and Teddy’s flowers. Clematis are my favorite flower. Do yours bloom all summer? Hopefully mine will. I enjoy your quilting and quilting on leather is beautiful.

    Wow Tim your garden just keeps getting better and better. I lost my clematis in the last couple winters so it’s especially nice to see yours.
