The last quilt show post

The baby quilt is almost finished.  Just a couple more feet of binding to go.  The quilting is lovely.  I don’t regret any of the hard work I put into it…now that it’s over. 

Okay, so here are the last more quilts from the Georgetown Quilt and Stitchery show.  I realized I still had machine quilting left and we can’t leave those out.  So, this is the applique section. 

Beautiful leaves…


This quilt is three dimensional.  I loved it.

These made my heart melt.

The composition and accuracy of this one were phenomenal.  Not that the others weren’t, but this one showed just that something extra.


Loved this one, too.  It was a choice for best of show.  It made me happy.


And, look at the quilting detail.  Yummy.


Okay, so later is machine quilting and special techniques and my other choice for best.

Good news to share.  I’ve been invited to speak at a local guild meeting.  The topic is my vintage machines, how I collect them, and use them in my quilting.  We have a few details to work out, but it should be a group of about 50.  And, as nervous as I am, I’m equally excited.  I plan to get Syd’s help in photographing my machines, so it will be a family project. 

Work is just busy enough to make the time pass fast and slow enough that I don’t feel hectic.  That’s pretty perfect.  My taxes are filed, the weather is nice and we’re supposed to get some rain.  It’s like all my dreams have come true at once. 

Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket.

Be well and have a great Wednesday.

I love the applique quilts, especially the one with the leaves. I am still working on my applique skills, and I need to take a class or two.

I would love to hear your talk on vintage machines. I have several I love, and I never tire of hearing about machines I haven't tried yet.

Thanks for sharing the applique eye candy, Lane! Just what I need to get me motivated to return to my fabric auditions: trace, snip, try, TOSS! Repeat as needed until the block works or the world ends, whichever comes first!

I wish I could come to your vintage machines talk, too. Any chance you could get someone to video it so you can post it online?

Speaking of vintage machines, do you have any suggestions about where I should buy belts for my treadles?
