Kathy Doughty came to the guild this month, she is such a nice person!And so talented!!!
And is has been a pleasure to help the guild by hosting some of the workshops at the shop, it's fun to see people creating! Very inspiring! Thank you Kathy and Prairie Star Quilt Guild!

Here are some pictures of her quilts.









 This one was inspired by an antique quilt pictured in a book Warm Heritage Old patchwork quilts and coverlets in New Zealand that we sell (check our website www.thequiltmerchant.com under Assorted books)

We had a great speaker at the guild the other day: Corey Yoder. She is a Moda designer, very nice!
But I was seated far so didn't get really good pictures, sorry...

 As we are going to do Pam Buda Block of the month Pieceful Pines, she brought us her own quilt!
We will have it on display until the end of the month, so come to see it, it is gorgeous!
 Then we got more snow...
 I tried the curvy Log Cabin ruler, we are going to have a class, I loved it!

We had our Timeworn Treasures meeting, so here is our show and tell! Beautiful quilts!














Then we had a very special guest speaker: Peggy and her family quilts!
 This applique one, the stitching is amazing!

 This one, the fabric has been sun on the family farm, it's wool with wool batting.
And that one is candlewicking

All dating from early 1800!!



















And here are some pictures of her family and a little bit of her story!
We were very lucky to see these in person!
