this one was made by many quilters... each made a block and then the blocks were put together in memory of a member that had passed in their sewing group. I thought it was well done with great fabric on the boarder which was from the member's own stash that had passed.
the one below is one of many wonderful quilts made from a challenge fabric that was picked. Their imagination was astounding!!
This was one of my fav's in that catagory
This one below a women's mother collected cat book markers and was pinning them to the wall. the daughter decided she was going to redecorate which meant painting the walls.. but what to do with all those book mark's ...look at the wonderful idea she come up with for her mom.. I thought this was a fantastic idea!!
Now this one I picked because I was lucky enough to buy the pattern a couple of years ago at our guild yard sale and then to see one made up and hanging at the quilt show just gave me so much incentive.. no I am not starting another project!! but it is waiting in the wings. I thought the maker did a wonderful job on the applique.. not easy patterns that is for sure!! and look at her boarder treatment!! You can click on these pics to get a closer look I am sure you will want to just like I did at the show..
As for me I took advantage of a little sale that was going on at Stitchin Heaven they had buy 7fq get 6 for free..and look what else they sent a rubber ducky but PINK with the ribbon isn't he adorable!! when you purchase from them you also collect "points towards a purchase" so I collected enough to get this LED ear light for applique when the light is not spectacular. Also they always send these wonderful thank you cards great people one day I hope to visit their store
I had sent them a link to the Civil War Bride and said when you pic the fabric please keep this quilt in mind.. I think they did pretty great!! you can see that nice new icon on the right there.. that quilt is going to be my 2010 to start quilt and finish!! I love it so much!!
so I am off to get a new thimble that has come out and also to drop off Rosemarie's camera.. she came by for a bit yesturday.. we looked at quilting books and sewed a little but talked alot!! next month it will be my turn to go to her place.. I didn't pull out much show and share with her.. mostly we drooled over books and patterns... it was an excellent time and it flew by very fast.
