Every other year, the Free Church Women's Ministries of the Groveland Evangelical Free Church sponsor a quilt show. They draw on local quilters to fill the church with quilts for a one day show. There are 132 quilts listed in this year's show catalog. The Pine Needlers Quilt Guild holds a Quilt Stroll through downtown Groveland in alternate years. Put that on your calendar for June 8, 2013.
I approached photography of this show with my new philosophy, a focus on the quilt show, rather than on the individual quilts. So that includes people looking at the quilts and views from funny angles. Even though, for the most part, I didn't take individual pictures of quilts, I still took 51 photos in addition to what I have in this blog.
This one concentrates on one quilt that I went back to look at more closely at a friend's recommendation. I'm in the mood for something humorous and this is it.
Wina Helm, a local quilter, uses bright colors and lots of whimsy in her prodigious output of quilts. She saw a quilt, Chicken for Dinner, displayed at a (reasonably) nearby winery and someone found the pattern for her. She made her Chicken for Dinner in 2011-12. (Wina, that seems unusually slow for you! ) It was machine quilted by Dee Small.
I'm giving you a taste of the show, an advance on organizing the other 51 photos, with Wina's Chicken for Dinner, block by block.
