get ready for a good Mystery

Last week Bonnie Hunter posted the color and fabric requirements for her holiday mystery. Now this is HUGE! She has a mystery on her blog every year between Thanksgiving  and New Years . Last year I did Easy Street along with her and all her followers. I think this group grows every time she does this.  I even had two sisters follow. I saw several Easy Streets at the Sisters Quilt Show in July and one of my Guild girls also had a beautiful one.

So anyway off to Lowes I went to pick up her suggested paint cards to start going thru my stash.

  Going to try and not buy any fabric this time , at least for the front. She has two sizes to choose from, not sure about that yet.
So how about it. Are you up for a good Mystery. Come and join the Mahem!

Time for a Talk

Nothing like getting ready for a little trunk show to get you finishing those UFO's!
 Tonight Ann Marie and I will be giving a little talk and trunk show at the WQG meeting.
 The content is "Modern Quilting" .
 Now my co presenter is a prolific awesome quilter and she amazes me with her quilting. You can see her site there in my side border for those blogs I love to follow.
 Love her STUFF!

Enough said about that ....
I was able to finish 3 quilts for the talk tonight.
 Just finished hand sewing on the binding of the third this morning.
 Another beautiful sunny day here in Oregon so outside I went
 to take some pictures of the three newly finished quilts.

Friendship Stars Improv

Finally finished the binding on this little quilt. It is my first attempt at improve piecing. The blocks were made and sent to me by my friends in the Sew Bee Wonky group on Flickr. I added a few of my own blocks and decided to offset them with low volume prints. Love how this turned out. Straight line quilting or as one of my guild friends called it... " corduroy quilting ".

Sunshiney day today so a good day to
take the picture outside.

The back with a few leftovers thrown in.

and one more picture of the front.
Love this quilt.
UFO No More!

MQX West

Got to go to MQX West friday. Quilt show and classes for machine quilting. Not to mention a vendors mall. I wasn't planning on taking any classes but when I got there they had an opening in a lecture demo with Angela Walters and Lisa Sipes so I took it. The two of them showed how they would quilt blocks that people had brought in. It was a great 2hour lecture class. I enjoyed looking at some amazing quilts and had fun walking through the vendors. A great day indeed.

Vibrant colors. 

Angela in action

Lisa . She is so fun.

Some of the blocks that were quilted

Angela's beautiful work.

Thankyou AnnMarie for sharing your pictures with me.
