I went to my first quilt show this week!

  And it was amazing.  Well overwhelming is a better word.  How do you take all that in and not get just giddy like a little school girl.  Being so excited I kept forgetting to take pictures.  And when I did take them I forgot to take pictures of who made the quilts.  So being fair to the owners I'll not post your pictures here because I can't give you the recognition you so deserve.   I'll be going to another in 2 weeks and I'll excitement under control and have a little show and tell. 

 Well we'll just have a little quilt show of our own.  Here's what some things I'm working on and some finishes.  I bought this panel from our local quilts shop, but you can purchase it at  they have several different patterns and panels.

 And this is what I made from this lovely panel.  I love the softer colors.  In a few weeks I hope to have the quilt finished that's currently under construction and will match this little beauty.

 Finally after a year this one has made it out of the sewing studio and to its owner.  Every holiday I try to make a wall hanging for my mom to put in her hair salon.   Machine issues and a busy season but this in the UFO pile for quite awhile.  That dark spot you see around the face is just water I used to remove the marking pen.  Patience is not one of my best qualities or I'd waited for it to dry before taking the picture.

Done and Gone!

This was finished  and given to a breast cancer survivor.  I'm pleased with it even though its not perfect.
