The new Quilting Arts Magazine is out and it has a nice article on the Coastal Quilt Artists, headed up by Bobbie Sullivan!
The article tells about them making "slice quilts", which involves taking a photo and dividing it into sections for individual people to make a "slice" of it.
Here's Betty Crowell with one of their award winning quilts in Houston! Betty has worked on all of the "slice quilts" that they have made, I think! There's been 7.
This picture has some of the members in it, including Eleanor Meaney who has since passed away and is greatly missed by all.
Copley Square, Boston, pictured below is their latest one.
To see more of the Coastal Quilt Artists "Slice Quilts" go to here.

Bayberry Quilt Guild Challenge Quilts

If you haven't been in to the store to see the Bayberry Quilt Guild Challenge Quilts you should come in to see them!
The challenge commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the National Seashore.
This one is Ruth's, complete with moveable parts, as usual!
There are 54 wallhangings hangings hanging, and they are all beautiful!

This is not part of the challenge, my mistake! I clicked the wrong number I guess. It's one of Marie Spadaro's that will be hanging next month. It does kind of of look like a fantasy Cape Cod shape though.

Come in to see the rest!
