The Inspiration keeps coming...

Good morning!  We've gone from 68 degree weather to rain which is trying to turn to snow.......and bunches of snow in the mountain.  This a trickster kind of Spring.  A call from Ohio told of waking up to 6 inches of snow......Its time to keep the faith.
I meant to include this quilt on yesterdays blog.  You can see the same sweet face peeking over the top of this fabulous applique quilt.  So talented!

  Just had to share this amazing antique quilt which Ann Lewis purchased a few years ago.  Below is a close up photo.  What a treasure.

Someone shared this stunning antique quilt which was made by a grandmother....I think.  I'm trying to keep all of my info straight.  It was brought by one of the gals from California, who come most every year.
And a close up peek.  There were a few thread bare spots, which just tells that it was well loved!

Another well worn and loved antique quilt....The colors are so soft and muted.

You will remember that I said we received a free quilt kit every year.......this is last years, and below is a right up close and personal shot.

Notice the quilting on the alternate block.

Here is a sweet little button quilt someone shared.

And a close up.......eye candy!

A class was taught by Leslie on making this wide mouth is the best.  This bag was made by a lady who lost her husband this last year, and every time she would visit the grave there would be dragon flies......beautiful fabric to represent something special.


Camille can be seen peeking over the quilt she showed for show and tell.  A beautiful traditional quilt....the kind I never tire of.

There was something for every taste.  This quilt Made from Kaffe fabrics, and most likely one of his designs is really splendid.

When so many quilters gather...there is bound to be some amazing show and tell with a wide range of taste represented.  I have an appreciation for all.
I find this contemporary quilt quite stunning.....and the back is the perfect finish.


And here is the talented gal who made it.

This lovely vintage star is so sweet and charming.  I never tire of the reproduction fabrics of the thirties.

I decided this quilt matched its maker....beautiful colors.

This will always be one of my favorites.  It is a design of Amy's.  There is also a miniature version, which I'm thinking would make a darling baby quilt for a girl baby! 

There was an apron class and here is one that was made.  It will no doubt turning cooking into a joy!!!  The way I've felt about cooking lately, one could only wish that were so.  :-)))!
"And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the spirit of love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest".
Percy Bysshe Shelley
