Well darn; so now we know.
I had a great time at the Faithful Circle quilt show yesterday with Felicia, the Slow Quilter. You want to know one group of quilts that really intrigued me? It was the Rainbow Connection Mystery Quilt that several Faithful Circle members did!
And look, someone finished her Orca Bay mystery! If you were interested in doing this mystery before it gets retired on May 1, better grab it now -- or wait for the book!
I've seen a lot of pictures of Orca Bay when quilters posted their finished quilt, but this is the first one I've seen in person. Believe me, the pictures I've seen do not do this quilt justice, it is really pretty up close and personal! She used leftover blue string blocks on the back, great back art!
Now, this still life just spoke to me for some reason...
was it the muted color pallet? the subtle focus on that one piece of fruit? the play of light coming through the window? I dunno, maybe all those things were calling out to me! It's one of those kind of quilts you can look at for awhile, especially when the quilting adds extra interest.
Beautiful selvages... two fairy tales...
I was loving it!
After we finished ogling the quilts and not buying fabric (Felicia just had to have a cute drunkard's path-type ruler), we headed over to Houlihan's Restaurant and Bar in Columbia/Elkridge for a quick bite. It was my first time going to this Houlihan's, I was more familiar with the one in Friendship Heights that closed a long time ago. I had a very tasty jumbo lump crab melt sandwich, with peanut ginger slaw on the side, yummy!
We had fun and I have more pictures of the quilts to share later, it was a wonderful show as usual. Have a great Friday!
Sew forth and sew on
