Deb Rowden

Thursday night was my guild meeting and Deb Rowden was our speaker. Deb is a wonderful speaker, very warm and always a smile on her face. She has spoken at our guild before and is a favorite. Needless to say she pulled quite a crowd. Deb is an editor for the KC Star books as well as an author. Her latest book, Making Memories, was the focus of her presentation. She brought many quilts with her and sparked alot of ideas. This quilt has an inked date of 1848.
This is a friendship quilt from her time in Germany. The little glitzy quilt below was made by Barbara Brackman as a mourning quilt when she lost her dog, Lexie.
I thought these gloves were darling.

The book is called Making Memories and her blog is www.debrowden.blogspot.com

  2. Thanks for sharing your guild events and photos. I live in a tiny town to far from a guild to attend so I enjoy seeing and hearing about yours and others very much.
