Welcome to my blog. Fabric has always been a passion of mine! I love looking, touching, feeling, smelling and of course creating with fabric. I was a professional seamstress for 13 years and now sew for relaxation and the pure joy of seeing a finished creation. It is my hope to share my triumphs and temptations with you. Love to all.

Quilt Show here I come!

Has it been a whole month since I blogged about my adventures?

I think so.

So what have I been doing?
No road trips. Not a lot of fabric shopping! Oh I know...

Getting ready for the Busy Bee Quilters Quilt Show, July 29-31 at the Monroe High School!

Yes I have been a little busy. Finishing quilts, sewing on pockets, making labels, starting new projects... lots of fun stuff.

And I have pictures too!

This quilt is one of my favorite - Moda Green Piece, BOM at the Needle and I in Everett - Love that shop! I had so much fun making this quilt - It is my generations quilt. An heirloom to be passed down for sure.

And one I designed on my own - Dreamy Night. One of my favorite quilts of course. (made because my grandson took my Christmas Quilt and I needed to have a winter quilt!)
I know you all have seen this one! I just love this quilt. One of my favorite quilts you know. This one traveled the Pacific Coast with me. And to the Carribean! Well traveled quilt this one. And I designed it too -
Breezy Beach -

And my favorite of favorites - Grandmother of all Grandmothers

Granny's Star Quilt! - Fons and Porter July/August 2009 issue (not my own folks)

Yes I have been busy getting ready for the show - And I have one more entry! The Challenge Quilt - A Painted Web was inspired from an article in the Winter 2011 Fabric Trends Magazine about Web Tagging! So I tried to create this photograph of a painted spider web on fabric. And O man did I bite off more that I bargained for. Well here it is. All done and ready to hang.

I have had some fun getting all my ducks in a row per say. To get ready for a fantastice Quilt Show! My entries are only a few of the 200 plus exhibits you can see if you come out. And I encourage it cuz folks let me tell you...My quilts are nothing compared to what you will see. These quilters are FABULOUS and SO TALENTED! Not to mention there is a Raffle Quilt and other raffle items and vendors, vendors, and more vendors.

So the dates again-

July 29 - 31 at the Monroe High School. Friday/Saturday 10-5, Sunday 10-4.
Hope to see you all there.
