PIQF and a Litte Bit of Sewing

Most of what I have been sewing I can't show...getting to be that time of year again, mostly birthday's - I don't think I'll be doing much Christmas quilting (famous last words).

But... the BQ3 is done and I found the perfect backing fabric for it - at 60% off!

I am finding I can't resist a Pam Buda's mystery sew along. I tried...really, I tried...but it called my name...okay, my name isn't Tucker but this should be a quick fun project. Step 2 is done. This square is 8 1/2 inches square. I can't wait for the next step.

Last weekend I went to PIQF. Nancy, Stephanie and Loris from Luckypup Quilter joined me. Loris is definitely a lucky pup as she went to the show three days in a row. It always amuses me when she posts her pictures of the show...I never remembering seeing the quilts she does that happen? I know we went to the same show. Most of the pictures I take pictures of are ones that I think I could make...

Or dream of making...

Or only in my dreams could I make...


I could definitely make this bazillion one inch squares. I'll whip it up tomorrow.

And what did I buy at the largest northern California quilt show with hundreds of vendors?

Not much. All clearance sales. While there were lots of fabrics and quilts kits that I really liked, none of them called my name - JOY - more than my stash.

Your blue for the BQ3 really is perfect for it. And I love your block for Tucker. I'm tempted with the sew along but am limited on machine time at the moment. My sister's knee surgery went well and she is doing great. I've been up and back and am heading up north yet again. I'm enjoying seeing your quilt show photos...I only remember a few of these. So much inspiring work!

Gorgeous pictures! I'm sure you could make some of those. Now how long would it take, I'm not sure. Even a simple quilt has been taking me a long time recently, so I can't imagine how long these would take! Beautiful post! Sounds like you had a good time with friends :-)
