It's been an interesting few days. I'll only share the good, quilty bits with all of you.
I was supposed to be at a quilt retreat with these two last week and the gifts were completely unexpected and absolutely delightful.
I was really impressed this year with the depth and variety of the quilts being displayed. Unfortunately I am now consumed with the idea of a "Whisper" or "Telephone Game" challenge. This link shows how this worked for one group. Anyone interested in doing an on-line version of this challenge?
I did actually stop at the fabric store closest to the quilt show. They didn't have the brand or color of thread I was looking for, but this fabric was on a sale table by the door for $2/yard. I didn't even know it was a border print until I took it to the cutting table. As a dietitian, I just couldn't resist fabric with names of fruit all over it.
Hmmm. I think I need to make friends with someone visually impaired. I think I would really enjoy making a quilt for someone who couldn't "see" it, but still totally enjoy the design.
I better go hand wind a couple bobbins so I can finish this quilt (yea...just one of many things that went bad this week.)
