CMQHOF Induction 2017


I was deeply honored by my quilt guild (The Schoharie Valley Piecemakers), sponsor (Kathleen Livingston), and the Hall of Fame judging committe to be chosen as one of the 2017 inductees.  The official ceremony was Saturday and it was hosted by our sister guild (Pieceable Days), so it was a hop over the hill.  My mother was inducted in 1987 and it was announced that it was the first mother/daughter into HOF.


And now for for my crummy pictures.  They nicely displayed a few quilts by the inductess around the chapel where the ceremony took place (United Methodist Church, Cobleskill,NY).  This Celtic Knot was fabulous!  And the hand quilting was just phenominal.  Sue just branch out into miniatures so had a sample to share.

I felt bad about not getting Dolly's wonderful Palampore (people dashed in front of me as I clicked).  It's a quilt I want to make (have the materials) so it was wonderful to see one up close as well as get some insight from her on working this.


A super King size Bargello that would have made my head spin to keep track of pattern layout.  Those mitered corners in the border were spot on.  You can see a bit of the One Block Wonder - a class that Cindy teaches in her travels.


I wish I had better pictures, especially the close up kind.  The hand work on these two quilts is metallics and lots of beads.  Both of these Judy entered in the Vermont MQX show and the black one took a ribbon.


My blurry two - oyi!!!  What a variety of quilting tecnique, style, and fabric choice in the inductees examples of work.


The host guild made these wonderful 'corsage' keepsakes that I think are super.  And the silver special engraved, handcrafted HOF thimble.  I don't take good enough photos for you to see the detailed work on this sweet thing.  My mother gifted me the ribbon quilter's pin.

  
The certificate!  I need to get a special frame for this.  I totally did not get a photo of the finished pineapple block that I made.  That will go into the official plaque with personal photo and bio to be hung in the HOF center.  I will be down there in a week for another event, so maybe I can get a picture of the full plaque.

Again, I am extremely honored,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon
