THE DUKE CITY APPLIQUE SOCIETY CHRISTMAS TRADITION
The December meeting of the Duke City Appliqué Society, earlier today at The Quilt Works, was very special. Each member contributed one or more hand-appliquéd blocks - that she has made during the past year - to the "pot." Then, as coffee and decadent sweets were shared, two names were drawn, and two gals took home the sets of blocks as starting points for wonderful quilts. Lillian Rozelle is shown in the left-hand picture with a set of blocks for the Cranberry Album Quilt, from Jeana Kimball's book entitled Old Voices, New Impressions, published in 1997. In the right-hand picture, Olive Murray smiles with her set of blocks for the Sally Post Quilt, for which patterns are available on line at www.sentimentalstitches.com.
