Stroll Through The Show With Me...



I'm back from Mid-Atlantic and will share a teeny-weeny bit of the quilt show first, through my eyes... click here and c'mon along! Take a good look at some of the hand quilting details where they appear. It was a terrific show, enjoy!

Yes, this is a squirrel quilt that you see... it was so well done, ("corn" quilting) I laughed out loud at the title: The Squirrel's Speech; it does look at though he is poised at a podium.  Tomorrow I will share more from the road trip up to Hampton, VA. I had a wonderful time... well, seriously, who wouldn't? What's better than a few days away surrounded by friends, quilts, fabric, classes and shopping? I can't think of a single thing; well, maybe the fact that there were snacks too!

Life really is Good!

Thanks for the "trip" to the quilt show. I enjoyed it immensely, especially the squirrel/corn quilt and the kitty at the faucet.

My goodness this was a great post. Thank you kindly for taking the time to put this together. I have much love for many of the quilts you chose but probably none quite as much as the birdhouses. Just never seen anything like it! I'm making sure that sets in my brain with cement!

Great quilts! I especially loved the stitching on the crazy quilt and the colors on the big star.

And the squirrel!

Ah HA! Your comment box changed, too - so it wasn't something that I did on my blog. Bad Blogger - making more changes we didn't ask for!

Okay - now to your post -- LOVE that squirrel photo! They are banned from our yard but that doesn't seem to stop them . . . (giggle)
