30's Night

I had a wonderful time at OUR Alpine Quilt Night this past Tuesday and I wanted to share it with all of you. It's taken me a few days to go through the 114 pictures I took at our 30's Night and I picked the best of the best to show you. It was hard picking just a few to show you.

Here's one of our Fearless Leaders, Flora. She and Paula have taken turns each year to lead us and inspire us. They are wonderful and generous women who love to share their love of quilting with all of us. They both have a great sense of humor and I don't think there's been one month that I haven't gone away happy. We have a lot of fun laughing and sharing. It's a big highlight for me and I look forward to going each month.


This is part of the 30's display table. Nanette made the darling teapot quilt in the frame. I just loved it!!!


Did you know that Betty Crocker is NOT a REAL person? That's something I never knew before last night.


Here's a display of food products that came from the 30's. I've used a lot of these products in my own kitchen. Infact, My grandson lives off of Macaroni N' Cheese. Whenever he comes to my house he wants me to make him "Grammi Noodles" LOL!


I thought you would be interested in seeing this original book of patterns from the Kansas City Star Newspaper. I didn't have time to look at it closely but thought that this book would be a wonderful addition to anyone's quilting library.


A look at the inside.


Here's some of the favorite quilt pictures I took.






















I hope you enjoyed all of the eye candy.

Great eye candy...love Nanette's teapots too! I'd sure love to find a copy of that quilt book! And hey...some of my favorite foods originated in the 30's...I used to literally live on Ritz Crackers!

What a fun '30s show! I'm always amazed that people made quilts like that without the helpful tools we have now. Thanks so much for sharing the pictures.
