February Program Report

Our February meeting featured Cathy Miller, the singing quilter, and her husband John Bunge. Toe tapping ensued. In addition to the fun and very lively music, Cathy brought a selection of her quilts, many done on the road while travelling to their singing engagements, including one aptly named ‘Insanity’, made of quarter-inch hexagons. God help me, but I just had to count the stitches. Between eight and ten per edge. Ouch. Taking the stage with her as a memory prompt to the words of one song was the ‘Star and Plume Quilt’, the names of the 48 blocks telling the oft-violent story of Sunbonnet Sue and her intruder turned suitor. The sampler quilt proved so popular that Cathy re-drafted it as a block-of-the-month.
