Jeananne Wright

Oh. My. Goodness. 

I. Am. In . Love!!

Jeananne Wright  came to speak at our guild about the history of quilts. She has a million quilts... okay maybe not that many - but enough, that I have decided we are long lost sisters, and she should be required to tolerate my presence as I wallow in her knowledge... and pet her quilts....  

Oh - big sigh!!

She let me take pictures, I don't think she knew that I would take each and every quilt that she brought 's picture.... but I did!!!  (Oh don't correct my grammar .... I know its off!!)

Is that not GORGEOUS!!!??

I really think she meant for me to have this one? 
If she looks hard enough I bet my name is on the label!!!

And then we had show and tell....
Check out this beauty!!!

I believe she made it for a gold star mom - but wouldn't that be a wonderful Quilt of Valor?

This black grey and yellow one was a winner at the fair - such a cool quilt!!!

And this one, I can't remember how many fabrics she said they used, but it was yummy!!  It made me want to come home and sew!!! So... I am sort of looking forward to this weekend... we have NOTHING ( okay maybe one or two things) but NOTHING that should get in the way of me.... bonding with my machine!!!

I agree, that one does have your name on it. But I'm equally sure the second one had my name on it. Perhaps a quilt rotation is in order. Everyone can sign up to rotate a quilt for a month. Thanks for sharing.

Don't say that you have 'nothing' planned out loud - you want to keep it that way! I can see why you were inspired! Makes me want to sew too! Hope you get to sew up a storm!

My guild has hosted Jeanne in the last couple of years. She gives a great lecture with tons of quilts! Lucky you!

Jeanne is a wonderful lady. If she had an official fan club, I'd want to be president! Not just because of her quilts and speaking, but she is just a great person.
