NQG 1st Quilt Documentation...

The Neuse Quilters Guild held it's first Quilt Documentation Project this week and we had a lot of fun!! 

 Our county, Lenoir, was not included in the book that our state published back in 1986 and we wanted to be ready in case another book is published. 

North Carolina Quilts

We had a two day event and invited residents of Lenoir County to bring three quilts for our historian, Lynn Gorges of New Bern, NC, to give us information about fabric and the dates they were completed.

Our lovely guild banner invited our guests into the room.

We then photographed the quilts, measured them and identified the pattern.
It was two full days of work...but fun work.

Here are some of the lovely examples that were brought in.

This last quit is a signature quilt made by the owners mother. She embroidered  all the names of her son's church class on it along with the name of the church and the was very special and he was very proud of it!!

We had a fantastic two days with approximately 50 guest and 83 quilts.

Isn't it fun to share our love of quilting?
