May 2017 Show and Tell

Kathy Cray brought another of her collection of antique quilts for the meeting program.  She explained how Sampler quilts like this one from 1890 came about. Quilters in the 1800s did not have the myriad of patterns and books that today's quilters have.  When a quilter made a quilt, they made an extra block for reference for later quilts.  These blocks could also be given to a daughter or friend for them to have the pattern.  When the quilter had enough extra blocks, they could make a quilt which became the Sampler Quilt.

Show and Tell is reveiling UFO's are coming in.
