More quilt show....


"It's Hip to be Squared" hand pieced, hand quilted and owned by Daphne Hedges.







30's Row Quilt pieced by the 30's group for Jane Lee.


This quilt had no information listed. Click the close-up photo and look at that quilting. Whoever quilted this wrote words into the sashing along with dragonflies, butterflies and more. Very well done and I am sorry I can't give credit to the owner/quilter..




Scrappy Diamonds (she named it "Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend") owned by Julie Alesburg, I love the modern fabric...very cute.














And to finish off this quilt show, two very well done applique wall hangings.... Please double click on the photo to read the information on each quilt. For someone who doesn't do this type of applique these were amazing..














Yesterday I took off at 9am to get a haircut. I fully expected to be back home by 10am at the latest. Instead I headed down to Target. Santa, being the nice guy that he is, visits every Christmas. Oh, we don't get to see him,(he's way too busy for that!) but he drops off an extra red Santa bag filled with surprises for the great-grandkids. This year there are 6, plus 1 due next June. It's Great Grandma's (my Moms) job (her idea) to fill the bag with two gifts for each great grandchild. As I walked the toy aisles I was struck that she really needed to be doing this, although she always manages to get one of us to do her shopping and wrapping. So I called her. She met me and we went from K-Mart, to lunch (meeting up with my working sister) and back to K-Mart and then to Wal-mart and on to Target. I didn't get home until 3:30pm, but her shopping is all done. I still have to wrap it, LOL, but that's ok. I think it was good for her to get out and help pick. She seemed to enjoy it. I wonder if she was as tired last night as I was. LOL

Today I am going to work on a couple of Christmas gifts.... maybe there will be photo's tomorrow....

Happy Sewing....

Thanks so much for sharing. It really is a pleasure to read your blog and see so many great pictures.
I don't get out to go to quilt retreats or shows so this is the next best thing.

I'm always amazed at the talent shared in a quilt (and I'm a guy!) I don't think I could ever do it.
