Athens Alabama Piecemakers Quilt Show

LOAD TIME ALERT—LOTS OF PICTURES!

What a grand array of quilting talent in the Athens (AL) Piecemakers Quilt Guild!  I find it uncommon in guilds that there is not a preference between patchwork and applique; it’s usually skewed in one direction or the other.  But in Athens, both sets of skills are phenomenal and plentiful.  Just look!

(apologies in advance…they did not label each quilt with maker info & I didn’t get a program before I left to do all the cross referencing.  All quilts are made by guild members.  Also, I got my pics before ribbons were awarded-you get to judge now too!)

These strips are cut 7/8” (OMG, right?)
