Local quilt show

Yesterday Charlene, Felicia, Pat and I enjoyed a pleasant afternoon at the Southern Comforters quilt show.  There's nothing like a quilt show for inspiration and great eye candy!  Here are a few pictures:

I liked the twist-turn setting of these 9 patch blocks, it's a very pretty quilt. 

And the blocks in this one are very interesting:

This is right down my alley!  I'm sorry I didn't think to write down the quiltmaker's name on any of my pictures, but this is one I'd enjoy making.  Here's a closeup:

Visit my blog (Eat, Sleep, Quilt) for more quilt pictures and to see what else we were up to!

That's all for now, sew forth and sew on til later

I thought I would share my latest project.  It's a "Doll Quilt Swap" I'm participating in over the Internet.  My partner gave me permission to "do my own thing"  whatever that is.  The quilt can be 12 inches to 24 inches and anywhere in between that.  This month's theme was anything green or spring like.  I'm glad had permission to do my thing.  Anyhoo, this is it.  I just need to finish my quilting, then do the binding, label and off it goes.  Since this is a monthly thing and the size is small, I thought it was a good way to try different and new techniques and things I want to perfect. hahaha.  On this one, I did some beading, hand applique and hand quilting. 

What you think????

Oh yeah, back to scrapes or is it scraps, man, where is my dictionary.  I don't want to go look for it because I'm on a road here.  Anyway, I'm doing this "mile a minute quilt" to bust my scrapes down.  I found a site on the Internet and It seem to be working for me.  Check my blog out  here  and see what I'm doing.

Piece and Prayers till next time
