Motown came to town

Yesterday was Community Day at the rec center, and the Wee Bee's got to show our Motown challenge quilts!  Here's mine:
Superstition, by Stevie Wonder!  If you can see it in the right closeup, I quilted black cats in the border.  I wanted to do 13 but there wasn't room for the size cat I used.

Our Bee made this quilt as a surprise for the center director, he was quite pleased.  I always like to see how, when we each do a block that's not preselected with no other guidelines except the size, how they all come together so well into one quilt!

The crowds were a little thin from previous years, but everybody who came had a great time.  There was music, dancing and bingo (I think) inside the center, a sound stage outside, and plenty of food.  The kids were having a great time on the moon bounce.

Our first visitor...

Our uninvited visitor...

And a horse named Ceasar ...
You can't see it, but he's wearing a cute little police department badge around his neck. But you can see his big feet:

I thought Clydesdales were used primarily for draught horses but he's a police horse.  With feet that large he can do pretty much what he wants to, I reckon.

We had a "quilt airing" of course, here are a few shots:

Patty K's Old Tobacco Road came out nicely

Here are a few of the other Motown quilts:
ABC 123 (Michael Jackson); The Tears of a Clown (Smokey Robinson); not sure of the third one - WeeBees, help me out!

 We also had Zentangle demos - Yetunde makes it look so easy!
Charlene caught on quickly!

A lot of my quilt pictures came out so fuzzy I didn't want to use em; what's up with my camera?  Anyway, that was my version of yesterday, hope you enjoyed it  :o)


  1. Thank you for sharing. I did indeed enjoy it.

  2. I really liked your Motown quilt! I also liked the first one, too, though! Even your "mistakes" are better than my finished pieces!

    I have to ask about the "uninvited visitor." Is that a child's toy? It can't possibly be a real bug, can it?

  3. Looks like a wonderful show, a lot of talent on display there!


  4. I bought a book on zentangles recently...they are fun, aren't they?

    What a great theme for quilts! I loved yours!! You are so creative!


  5. Oh my gosh what an awesome quilt show!! I wish I could have seen it in person. Very fun.
