Celine Perkins from "Perkins Dry Goods" was our speaker for the April Country Quilters Meeting. The quilt she is holding in this photo is "Grandpa's Best". This quilt was made for her dad and she said it is one of her favorites.
Perkins Dry Goods was established in June of 2002. Celine's quilting life began in 1983 when she took her first hand piecing class at Glad Creations Quilt Shop in Minneapolis, MN. You can check out her website here http://www.perkinsdrygoods.com.
Anna has been busy quilting while she was a snowbird in AZ.
Barb showed a quilt she made for her 12 year old granddaughter. She also showed an antique summer coverlet.
This photo doesn't do this quilt justice. The colors were amazing on this beautiful bright stars quilt.
Daphne showed a cute wool project.
Carmen belongs to an art quilt group called Crossing Boarders. The theme last month was faces disguised. She came up with this fun mask.
