Words With Sam!

This month the PMQG mini challenge quilt involves Words. 
I used some paper pieced blocks from this book by Sam Hunter


QUILT TALK by Sam Hunter


Several months back I took a class by her held at Fabric Depot 
and bought her book. I like to put words on the back of quilts sometimes
And thought this would be a fun way to add those words. 


My mini challenge quilt.

Lesson learned....hard to read the letters in
The low volume background, but next time.....
I enjoyed the process, and will use the book again.


I also finished the 2015 Riley Blake fabric Challenge,
And here it is, first time using my Hex n More ruler for the triangles


Front......


And back
         No letters on this one.

Back to stitching, off to see my sisters tomorrow!

A Quilt Show in Sisters

Last weekend was the 40th annual outdoor quilt show in Sisters Oregon. We took our trailer over on Wednesday and spent the better part of a week just outside of town. My sister and a good friend also went for the week. We were able to do a little outdoor sewing, a little shop hopping, barbecuing, relaxing, visiting, laughing, and of course walk about the show on Saturday. Great week and I already made reservations for next year!


Sew much fun sewing outdoors!

Sewing Saturday

Finally tackled this mound of batting this week.
 I pieced seven baby quilt batts out of it. 
Frankenstein batting..... ��



And today I was able to go to Sewing Saturday with my Westside Guild peeps. 
It has been a while since I was able to sit and stitch with friends. 
It felt good. I quilted another Fancy Fox piece for a second pillow. 
Again I just love that Serpentine Stitch. Cool texture. 



And I finished a couple of pot holders.


Good Times!
