First, let me share a picture of the four of us together at the Vermont quilt show. The picture was on Barb's camera and I needed to get it from her before I could save it and post it. This is Wendy, Barb, Claire and I on our lunch break! We sure had a fun time.
Speaking of Wendy Reed (constantquilter), let me share some of the photos I took in her sewing room. Here is a box with one of her projects in process! Note that they are all done using her potholder method and are all hand-quilted! Gorgeous! Also don't miss one of her many ribbons in the background!!
Here are her string blocks for Lori's challenge.
I love how she used scrap blocks for her center line in the blocks. Aren't they awesome??!!
This is a quilt she made as a challenge with a friend of hers: they each had the same LOUD background fabric and challenged each other to make a quilt:
Here's a close-up where you can see Wendy's hand quilting and her beautiful appliqué up close.
Claire and I stopped at Keepsake Quilting on our way to Burlington and I felt that I had to share the wall of rulers!! I've never seen so many rulers!
I finished my June mini in June but never got a chance to post a picture. I also want to share some more pictures from my trip to Vermont.
This is an Amish quilt that I made many years ago and even hand-quilted it in purple thread. I found it in a pile awaiting the binding! Lesson learned: don't leave something that's almost finished to be completed at a later date. Get 'er done!!
I still have more show pictures to share as well as quilts from the Shelburne Museum.
All our family and friends are leaving our cabin tomorrow so I'm expecting that I'll do lots of sewing to compensate for the great kid company we've had all week. Hope you had a great 4th. I have to share a couple of pictures from the 4th of July in Bend.
They have a pet parade every year where people display their pets (and I mean all kinds of pets...dogs, pigs, snakes, roosters and horses!)
Our 7 yr old granddaughter has been going to a horseback riding camp the past two summers here in Bend and the camp participated in the parade so she got to be in the parade on her horse! That's a big deal for a girl who has been raised in San Francisco!
