Busy, Busy, Busy

That's me here lately, Busy, Busy, Busy!

First, I want to share the birthday gift I got from my sister-in-law.  Aren't they cute?

Last week we had such fun at our Guild meeting, I wanted to share with all of yous.

We all brought our machines along and sewed together.

First, Linda Aarant demonstrated how to make a Hot Dog Pillowcase.  I thought "huh?  Its a regular pillowcase."   But now after seeing how it was made, I understand the name.  Also, learned how to hide a raw edges in a seam.  (Anyone interested in the tutorial, please let me know and I will email it to you.  For some reason it would not copy on my blog)

This is mine.    😆

Next, Eileen Carr demonstrated how to make Walker Totes. 

This lady made some using denim fabric and pockets of jeans.  Then ties are from men's hankies.

This is Eileen Carr and one that she made.

We each made a Walker tote then we donated them to our local Nursing Home.

Some made plain, some fancy, even applique pockets.

We spent the whole day together.  Such fun, I am sure they will all get a lot of use out of them.

We also had some beautiful quilts brought in for Show and Tell:

I hope I didn't bore you too much.

Till next time,

Paducah Quilt Show — 2016

                   Oh what fun we had!

This past Wednesday was the first day of the Paducah Quilt show in Paducah, KY. 
 Seven of us Quilter's went together to see all beautiful quilts.

The designs, the techniques, the stitching, imagination, the quilting....

I could go on and on explaining how beautiful they all were.

Instead,  I am just going to share a few with everyone!

Check out closely, all the details in each room..amazing! 

I just loved the colors of the Sunflowers.   (I bet it was only 20 X 20")

Each circle was appliqued on by hand.  Then quilted with small circles throughout.  

I loved these colors and the quilting was unique in this one.

All those little pieces!

I hope you can see all the detailing in these quilts and the beautiful quilting. Even the log Cabin was brought to life.

A "Dear Jane" Quilt, perfectly done!

Picture perfect! 

"Liberty" from the right & left.

Oh, those pieces!

Great idea using the "Dresen Plate" 

This quilt, I thought was so cool.  It was called "Sleep,  Pray, Scream".  Oh, and that is not a frame but a boarder on the quilt.  This picture was taken looking at it from the right side.

Same quilt but the picture was taken straight on.

Same Quilt but the picture was taken looking at it from the left side.

We were told the were over 500 venders.  All I truly know is there was a lot!  I seen quite a few new products this year.

We also met John Flynn, Ricky Timms  and Pat Sloan. 

How exciting the day was.  We made lots of memories, met a lot of interesting people,  and made new friends. 

Thank you for joining me and my many pictures of the quilt show.  I hope that you enjoyed seeing them.   Also I hope you got to see the detailing, stitching and beautiful quilting in each.  

Till next time....
