This first quilt...I'm not sure what happened to the pic. It was a miniature, each of the hexagons finished at 1/2 inch. I'm not sure why we didn't get a better picture. This quilt was made by a friend of my mentor's. In addition to the hexagons, there was some beautiful applique around the edges.
The next quilt was a whole cloth quilt that was all done by the quilting. Loved it and she did a really nice job of it. Lots of thread went into this one. There were about 20 of these assorted little animals in the quilt, but to show the detail, we had to focus on just a couple of them.
Third Place Other Techniques - Fauna Fantasy by Martha Tsihlas
This one is a bug and we couldn't figure out what kind, so of course, Sydney had to take a pic of the one we couldn't figure out.
Okay, I did really good on spending. But, Sydney's camera really washed out the colors. I got the three center pieces of fabric, each between 30 and 42 inches wide and selvage to selvage for 50 cents each. I picked up 5 light colored batik fat quarters. I can't find lights in any of the local shops, so when I find them, I buy them. They're lavendar to yellow, to a light gray. I picked up the Texas state pattern to make some gifts from. I'm thinking it will be another good way to use up some scraps and I'll border them in bluebonnet prints. I got some of the soft pony tail holders for my bobbins, about 8 to the bag and 3 bags for a dollar and I got some green ceramic lead for my pencil. If you haven't used the ceramic leads, I highly recommend them. They stay on the fabric very nicely while you quilt or sew. I've had a white one that I use on dark fabrics. Now I have a darker green to use on my light fabrics.
Hope everyone had a nice weekend. I'm off to read some blogs and get some work done. Take care. Lane
