Collinsville Quilt Walk 2010 Part 3

Card Trick. Didn't have time to get the info for these either.

Dutch Doll.

This next quilt I also saw at another quilt show. I don't know who made it or the name, but I know the hostess said it took the maker 5 years to make, and it was hand quilted, and that it was a wedding quilt for the maker's daughter. Also, it has a large Mickey Mouse embroidery on the back bottom corner.

Crazy Quilt by Phyllis Nichols

Some of you will know for sure, but I think this is a Dear Jane.

The next quilt was hand appliqued.

And this is the label for the above quilt.

The next 2 are memory quilts made for brothers from their father's shirts.

This is the label from one of the memory quilts.

This next picture is of Tinnie Pettway and her daughter Claudia Pettway Charley. Tinnie (pronounced Tiny) is one of the original members of the Gee's Bend Collective. She, her sister Minnie, and her daughter now have their own organization called That's "Sew" Gee's Bend, where they sell their quilts and the quilts of other quilters from Gee's Bend who are not still members of the Collective. The other pictures are of their quilts, most of which are available for purchase through their website www.geesbend.net.

I think this one is called Bullseye.

This next one was by far my favorite. If only money were no object for me, this quilt would be hanging in my house.

I did get a potholder from Tinnie's line of products called Tinnie Pieces with Minnie Designs, and her book Gee's Bend Experience which she signed to me. We had a great time this year at the Collinsville Quilt Walk and hope to go again next year.

Sabrina thanks so much for the virtual quilt show.  I am now feeling very unworthy of calling myself a quilter...LOL.  All of the quilts are amazing.
