On The Longarm Today

         Quilted two quilts over the last two days. 
            The first is for a friend at work. 
             Just love the fabric in this one.

         Such happy fabric!

          Swirly quilting .

             And the backing is so pretty!

And then today I finished a baby quilt for my daughters friend.
I used Minky on the back, a little stretchy but not too bad.

        Chantilly Lace panto that I forgot I had.
        I think it made a nice compliment to the quilt.
        Now on to binding and in the mail with it.

A Precious Find

I came across a box up in my fabric closet today. Inside was a quilt my mother in law had started before she got sick. I can remember her talking about and gathering fabric for this quilt. It was to go on her bed. I found a receipt from Fabricland that had the year 1989 on it. I found two large pieces that only needed to be put together to make a nice size quilt that will be perfect on our bed in our new to us camper. What a pleasant surprise! My husband will be delighted with my find!

Time to say Goodbye to Sisters

What a great vacation. Today it rained and hailed from time to time, but we just stayed inside and sewed! This morning we were able to get into town to hear a lecture by Angela Walters and to see some of her quilts hanging outdoors. Beautiful way to end our Quilt Show weekend.

Warning.....lots of pictures to follow......

AnneMaries' beautiful challenge quilt!

This was the back of the quilt just above, Too cute!

The teachers tent was very inspiring.

Love the Spargo stuff.

Baby owls

Always drawn to the colorful

So pretty!

Angela's quilts in the outdoors.

I love her quilting style.
