We had a fun bus trip to Monroe Washington to see all the quilts on display. Wow oh, WOW!!! There were over 500 quilts … tons of eye candy … I took a picture of only a fraction of them. Click on the slideshow below to see what I took pictures of. Of course, I took pictures of every single Bonnie Hunter design I could find! 🙂 I also included the description of each quilt … usually following the quilt, but some of them came before the quilt … I’m sure you’ll figure it out!
Did you see the quilt with the itsy, bitsy, tiny, tiny paper piecing? My friend put her hand up to help show the size … I think the pieces in the flowers might have been 1/4″!
And this made me laugh out loud! “It wasn’t Ugly When I Bought it”
Daisy Chain Mystery – Clue 3 … It’s a simple and fast step! Making 4 patches. And yes, you can see on the bottom right that I twirled the intersecting seams. If you want to join in the fun, it’s not too late. I’m making the throw size quilt and each step has been quick and easy!
Webbing: This coming week at our guild meeting, I’m demonstrating how to “web” quilts together … I had to do a bit of sewing and cutting on some UFOs that are not on my “Top 12/13” list … so, they might be timely finishes, if I need a quick finish! 🙂
I finished quilting one secret project. Binding is on. Quilt is done.
The label is made for my March Island Batik challenge. Sew, just a bit of quilting and the binding and it’ll be done and I’ll show you the quilt. I absolutely LOVE the fabric!!!
I know I’m totally biased, but it is a very pretty quilt.
The winter table runner was finished. It
used up wasted a lot of fabric. If I had read throught the directions prior to starting, I would have used a totally different method. It used 3.5 yards, when in reality, 2.25 would most likely been more than enough! Serves me right for not reading the first instruction “read through the pattern prior to starting.”
I did buy a little bit of fabric at the show … I bought 1.25 yards of knit fabric for a t-shirt top (on the bottom of the picture on the right) … I debated whether to include it because it’s for a garment, not for quilting … but in the end, I decided to include it because it does add to my stash! I also bought 2 half-yard cuts of Island Batik material!!! (top of pic to the right). There was only one vender at the show with IB fabric (that I could find).
One of the secret projects is done, done, DONE!!! The baby quilt challenge for the guild used 2.5 yards. I’ll show you a picture after our quilt show in May.
