Last weekend I headed down to Cedar to the Cedar Chest quilter's winter retreat. My Aunt and I went to the trunk show by Blanch Young. Blanch is 90 years old and showed some fantastic quilts. I loved her amazing use of color and the way that she used big prints on the back of her quilts. Here are a few pictures from her trunk show. My favorite saying from her trunk show was "Some mistakes I make, make the best quilts!"
My Aunt Karla and I took an all day class from Blanch's daughter Lynette Bingham. We made a baby trip around the world quilt that was called Twice as nice. This actually ended up making two quilts in reverse order. Her are the tops of the first quilt that Karla and I finished. Lynette has a fabric shop in Hurricane Utah called Main Street Quilt Cottage. I will add her link on the side. This retreat was really fun and we just might have to make this a yearly tradition!
