Sue graciously accepted our President’s, Diane Mitchell, request to do a ‘Trunk’ Show for us after the quarterly business meeting on September 20th. She warned Diane that she did not have much to show.
Before the meeting, Sue must have hauled eight overstuffed bags and bins from her car trunk into the Hall. BTW, this is why this activity is called a ‘Trunk’ Show.
“Not much to show”, is a whopping understatement.
Sue’s handiwork covered the walls (and some of the furniture) of Independence Hall.
Her backdrop is a quilt she made for her granddaughter. The style is called Bargello. Thank you, Alyssa, for letting your grandma show us your quilt!
Thank you, Sue! It was a pleasure to hear the history about each quilt and wall hanging. You are a very talented lady! A bunch of us are hoping someday you will teach a class for members…
The IHQ 2016 Board Members introduced themselves and shared a bit of past & current projects. So much talent in one room!!
I had intended to photograph each board member with their art, but I did not realize the “show” would be an informal “Sew & Tell”, and I quickly lost the opportunity. I blame my croup, or whatever hideous virus it is that still lingers, and sucks all energy.
So… if any board members feel they should have gotten a mention, but got lost into the black hole that is my brain, fear not! Contact your local webmistress and request a private showing.
