People collect spoons and bells and s/p shakers to commemorate events in their lives. Me, I assemble quilt kits.
This kit commemorates my first self-designed quilt shop hop in Cleveland, OH.
And, this set of civil war repros are from my first trip to Minneapolis and St Cloud, MN.
These are from last years Austin area quilt guild show.
And, these, except for the blue, that is still in the audition phase and is from my stash came from the Georgetown quilt show on Saturday.
We had a lot of fun and laughed a lot and ate. Then, I came home and bottled beer for the rest of the afternoon. Enough beer to last all summer.
Sunday morning, up early and I pin basted the orange Linus quilt and spent most of the rest of the day quilting it.
And, that's how our weekend played out.
Now, if you want 15ish minutes of my family at the quilt show, doing what we do best; being a family. Catch the long conversation that Sydney had with the white glove lady. The sound isn't great, but she ended by telling the lady that she might get her quilt quilted by a "world famous quilter" and when the lady asked who, Sydney pointed at me. And, the lady darted toward me, before Rob could stop her and explain that I am not famous...well, I guess I am in one person's eyes.
Take care. Lane
