Wind Me Up, Hear Me Sing

My son Jon is drummer in a band by the name of "The New Kinetics" in SanDiego.


This week they released an animated video on UTube. Here is the video. Jons' character has the blue and white striped shirt. It's funny, but the characters actually look like their band member counterpart.

Enjoy, Jeri

October Blocks

Today was a great day to finish up my blocks for the month. I am part of 2 Bees and so it was a good day to finish up the blocks to mail off next week.

These Greek Cross blocks are for the
Do Good Stitches Bee

These Wonky Star blocks were for the
ScrapBusters Bee

It is kind of fun to just do a couple of blocks just to try them, and I certainly have the scraps to use.
Hope your weekend was a good one.  Jeri

Finishing up a quilt today for my sister. Halloween is just around the corner. Hope she has time to get it bound, if not.....2012!

Hot off the presses.............

A look at the whole quilt.


another closeup.....

The Quilt Expo over the last week was amazing, took some awesome classes, great vendors, learned so much. Kind of overload.....I was able to apply a few of the factoids I learned to this Halloween quilt. I had it halfway finished before and so the last part was much easier to do because of the classes I took.
some amazing quilts at the Expo.

works of art.

This one won the top award.

That teabag has itty bitty cross stitching on it.

Such inspiration.

This one looked like a painting.

Good Times, Jeri

Quilt Show

Yesterday and today was the Quilt Show put on by Westside Quilters Guild. I sold tickets  for a while and then answered questions about our charity quilting. The show was a sucess. So many talented people in our guild and a fun vendors mall. Amazingly talented quilt art speakers too. Here are some pics.

This is our Guild Raffle Quilt for the year. The quilting on this is beautiful. It truly makes the quilt.

Love this.

Beautiful applique on this one.

          These were the result of a class some of our members attended. Making a quilt from a picture.

I am still drawn to House Quilts.

So many pretty colors.

Someday......I will make a selvedge quilt.....

and of course I love the scrappy quilts.

This is one of AnnMaries' I love her stuff. My goodness look at that straight line quilting. It makes the quilt.

and some more "Modern Houses"

Another scrappy quilt. This one is handquilted! Patty Dobbs does such a beautiful job.

and I am also drawn to the antique quilts. Especially that Grandmothers Flowergarden. Love it!

What a great show. We have some very talented quilters in our guild.
