GVQC November 2011 meeting

Yesterday was GVQC’s monthly meeting and we were honored to have Jane Holihan give us a trunk show of her drop dead, absolutely gorgeous quilts.  Jane is an award winning quilt artist – and we’re talking the biggest awards around for quilt making – and we were all impressed by her, her work, and her modesty.  Instead of accepting her lecture fee, she had the money donated to the School of the Holy Childhood.  

My photographs do not do justice to her work.  I’ll post the pictures in order of her making them – I hope I remember that correctly – and then will make a few comments after you’ve seen all the photos. 

And the show begins:

 
Jane hand quilts all her quilts, and the last 2 pictures are minatures ranging  from 14″ squares to the much smaller whole cloth quilt at the end.  That could not have been larger than 8-10″ x 12-14″.

And a big thank-you to Marcia for holding up the minatures for me so I could take better photos.   As usual, if you double click on the photos, they will enlarge for you.

I’ve been a member of GVQC for over 30 years, and I can count the number of times we’ve given a speaker a standing ovation.  Jane received a standing ovation.  Brava, Jane!!! 

Hugs…
