City Quilts Trunk Show & More

Wednesday, April 27, 2011


Recently Cherri House came to visit the Philly Modern Quilt Guild.  She presented many of her quilts from City Quilts & some of her patterns.  Enjoy the photos below from her visit.

Also... I didn't take photos... but
I took Cherri for her first cheesesteak...
I took her to her first diner...
... and along with my dad gave her a driving tour of the city's famous places.
It's always so much fun for me to share Philadelphia with someone for the first time.

Intro...

The pool table worked perfect to hold the quilts.

Cherri talking about the book.



Something was funny...



Cherri asked me to tell the story of when she showed me the inspiration for this quilt.









(Thank you to my dad for taking the photos.)

I loved visiting Philadelphia when Meg was in school. And the cheesesteak and the diners and several spots of epicurene delight. How fun to see all of Cherri's quilts in persona dn get to fondle them too!

Missing Philly today :(

Thanks for the quilt pics - sometime I am just stunned by the beauty of her work - so "simple" patchwork-wise yet so complicated - the movement and colors and pattern with randomness - wow. Thank you for sharing!

You're guild looks like so much fun, I wish it wasnt 90 min away from me!

I think the Newark, DE Quilter's Guild doesn't exist anymore.... lame :(

Great trunk show- I have been wanting to make the House's House quilt! They are all great though.

I love the colors of your quilt but the touch of pink really makes it!

I can't believe all that you do with fabric. Your eye and ability to manipulate the fabric is tremendous.
