I have been getting caught up today from all that you have to do when you get home even if it is a short trip. The laundry is done & the grocery shopping. I vacuumed and washed the kitchen floor which should have been done before I left and wasn’t. The bathroom still needs to be cleaned but I think I will wait for tomorrow. I ordered Carolyn Konig’s book “Creating Herilooms” which has her version of Mrs. Billings in it from the Quiltmania site – I am not sure what year this book was published , so much more in my budget than the quilt pattern with all the papers and the acrylic templates. By copying the pages of the templates I should be able to make my own – we will see as I have no idea right now when it would even be started!!
I have not done any quilting today – I wanted to get caught up first on all the household chores and finishing posting some photos from the show.
This is a beautiful quilt by Megan Farkas of Sanbornton, New Hampshire – she saw a photo of a Persian Tile Mosaic and turned it into a quilt – it is Hand Appliqued and Hand quilted wonderful work.
An Art Quilt by Trish Morris-Plise and quilted by Sandra Bruce from California, wonderful work.
A beautiful quilt from Japan once again – this one is called Winter Memories by Chieko Shiraishi it was inspired by the Little House on Prairie books it is Hand Applique, hand embellishing, and Hand quilted.
And I hope I got the right sign to go with this Dear Jane quilt – called “An Out of Hand Experience” by Bonnie Robottom from Calgary, Alberta, Canada and quilted by Sharon Blackmore. It is mixed technique quilt both by hand and machine.
I have more photos than I thought and maybe I will share more over the next couple days – now I think I need to sit down and work on one of my own quilts!!
