Blue Valley Quilters' Guild

Deb Rowden was the guest speaker this morning at BVQG and she spoke about memory quilts.

I took a couple of pictures.  Sorry the quality isn't great, but let me tell you about the ones that struck my fancy...

This one reminded me of Gee's Bend quilts...  It was made for the widow of a man who had just passed away out of his dress shirts.  It was made in 4 parts (quadrants).  What a great way to create a family heirloom and to remember those who were special to us.

This next quilt was made of neckties.  I took a picture because I love the setting.  I'm more and more drawn to diamonds and triangles...  This strippy look is very appealing to me.
