Show and Tell

Stacey, Dawn and Nancy were over yesterday for a quilty get together. There was lots of food and lots of show and tell. First off here's Dawn with a quilt center she finished yesterday. My picture does not do the colors in this quilt justice.
Stacey, Dawn and Nancy recently took a class together. Nancy and Stacey finished adding the borders to their quilt.
Quilts with feet. hehehe

Dawn thought Fred had lost some weight...
What do you think?

Dawn and Stacey recently participated in a triangle swap. Here is Stacey's quilt.
I loved how her border fabric brought out all the blues in the center. Dawn took a totally different route.
So much triangle fun! I want to make both.

Ta Da! The civil war quilt is done!
Almost. If I can find the right fabric, the consensus of the group was that I should add a small containment border.

Fun, food and friends. Great combination.

Bloggers Quilt Festival

I haven't participated in Amy's Blogger Quilt Festival in a while. I've missed everyone visiting and visiting the other participants blogs. This time I'm not missing out.

I made this quilt several years ago from a Bali Pop and my stash. The pattern was from one of my magazines but I don't remember which one and I didn't exactly follow it.

There is an embarrassingly funny story about this quilt. I used to hang my quilt flimsies in a spare closet until it was time to take to the quilters. When I was unemployed I had quite a few hanging in there. I reserved time at local shop to rent their long arm, when it was time I couldn't find the quilt. I looked in every nook and cranny in this house. I knew it had to here. I had taken it with me to quilt shop in Vacaville to show a friend and I thought maybe I had left it there. I was broken hearted. I love how the quilt turned out then to lose it was very disappointing. I told everyone my sad lost quilt story. I spent over a month trying to decide if I was going to remake it or not. In the mean time I decide to quilt one of my other quilts....can you guess what happened? Yup, right there in the closet where it was suppose to be.

Good thing I don't need my sewing machine case...

Lately Siddi thinks it's an excellent place to take a nap.

So Much Fun

Finally the nine patches are sewn and ironed, they are even cut in half. I promise not to show the civil war blocks again until the top is done.

Just before I left for Idaho I hit a few of the Renegade Run quilt shops, one of the shops was Sew Katie Jean. Lucky me, I won the shop giveaway.
Woo Hoo! Ten quilting books! Thank you s0 much, Sew Katie Jean! I'm going to have sew much fun with these.
