More quilt show eye candy

Three things to be happy about:
(1) a gentle reminder
(2) sleeping late
(3) fresh ginger

More pictures from the quilt show - I love houses!

Especially if they're wonky.  I didn't note any sizes but I think this one was something like 10 x 14?

Anyway, it's cute!  Here are some more small ones....

Isn't it interesting how different people can take the same pattern and, if they choose their own colors and theme, they'll make something radically different?
I think these were the result of a foundation piecing class.

More small quilts...

I told Felicia we need to challenge each other and make small quilts, they can be as simple as a quilt block.   I think these were 12 x 12!

Change of pace... this vendor had patterns and tools for making woven baskets and purses...

after we left the booth we put our heads together ... uh-huh... go to Home Depot, get a dowel and some pvc pipe...

I like a play on words, I do it every now and then...
spring chickens!

sitting duck!

uhm... flipping the bird!
Let's finish with two great pictorials!

That's it for now, sew forth and sew on til later!


  1. Interesting variety today. We went with small challenge pieces with our quilt guild - it increased participants as they don't take as long, you can use scraps, and it's not something you have to send off to a long armer.

  2. I love the puns!
    And that nativity quilt is very nice.

  3. Fun to see the quilts in these last 2 posts. My friend & I did a challenge creating a small quilt and really enjoyed it. Working smaller can be quite challenging, but generally it goes quicker and you get a little bit of 'instant' gratification. AND they rarely turn into UFO's.

  4. Spring chickens -- love it! too funny. Thanks for sharing.
