two favorites today!

Modern Day Diamonds and Sugar and Spice.   Both have been on my list for a while.    I need to square it up and put the borders on before the weekend.  Wish me luck.  The pattern is from Heather Mulder Peterson's book Livin Large and the fabric is a Riley Blake fabric. 
I hope you are all having a productive summer.  Or a laid back good time.

We finally were able to get together to sew! Yay

Lana brought her completed crochet bag.  I love it, why didn't I take that class? 

Great colors.

She said she found this pattern in a McCalls magazine.

Look at those little squares.  love it.

Jeri brought this baby quilt to bind.  She said she started it a long time ago but then there were only boy babies coming into the familly.

Wait until you see this right side up. It is stunning.  Right now she is somewhat frustrated and is doing some unpicking. 

Cute table topper. 

It seems like by the time we leave things just don't fit in the case very well. 

Tomorrow is the balloon festival so we will be up early to see the balloons take off.  Our mountain air is perfect for the balloons.  Tomorrow night is the glow down main street.  Each year it gets bigger and bigger.  It is so fun to walk down the street and see people you haven't seen in years.

The Singing Quilter--What a great trunk show

I put this on top because it is my favorite.  I love how she shadowed each block. 

She sang a song about a crazy quilt and added each element of the song in this little quilt.

She said she started some hexies and could not stop.  I think she said these were 1/4 inch.

I actually heard her say this was pretty easy.  I know no one believed it.

Cathy Miller, The Singing Quilter and her husband.  She taught two classes while she was here also.

Dianne and the gal from Dave's Bernina.  Dianne won the sewing machine.  She was sitting in the same seat I was last year when I won.

And even more quilts from the Quilt Walk Show

this is Lillian's Meet me at the Crossroads quilt from a class she took last year at the festival.

Love the look of this. 

the colors in this were really eye catching.

This is Lana's farmers wife quilt.  so many small squares.

I believe this is an antique crazy quilt.

This beautiful quilt won the only award for a quilt we have at the festival.  It won the people's choice award.

Don't you just love the blocks and colors on this quilt?

This is one I want to do but not sure about those small squares.

Placemats and Classes

One of our service projects this year is making place mats for our "meals on wheels" program.  There were so many cute ones I wanted you to see them all hanging on the walls in the auditorium.

Claudia, Nan, Marylou and Linda at the registration table.  It looks like the fun starts  the minute you get here.  For me the hardest part is getting all my "necessary" stuff out of the car and into the building.

This quilt will be raffled off at the balloon festival the end of June. 
Flora talking about block placement and how you get a different look with different placement.

They were getting right to work in the Crochet bag class.

Emily with her "Breathe" quilt. 

Over Thursday and Friday this quilt was put together for the Chemo Quilt Sew In.  Pretty awesome isn't it?

I think the word I would use for this quilt is charming.

More pictures from the floor.

This quilt was made with 11/2inch squares.  I know the quilter could not see the pattern close up but from the back you can see the awesome details that were added.  The man who did this said it was his second quilt.


Love the colors here.  I think I can use my new curves ruler to do one like this.

striking colors

I think this is one of Nan's quilts.

This one too.

Love the details in this.

Kay Hatch made this one and said it is the one all the grandkids want.

Another one of Kay's.  I really like the colors in this.

More to come.
