.....my day was too busy and I crawled into bed without blogging.
Sorry, about that. No time to sew today...:-(! I was busy with the dentist, and I have been having regular massage for my shoulder. We quilters have a difficult day without needle and thread.
I'm just now recognizing this is the same feathered star block in this quilt as the one I shared yesterday. It was from the same group that had the block exchange. Once again I am drawn to this beautiful star block.
Oh how I love this block, and what a gorgeous masterpiece this quilt is. I especially like the negative nine patch that is used in the sashing.
Mary has achieved the look of a very old quilt. Perhaps it comes from the pheasant border fabric, and I also the ping snowballs contribute to the old feel.
Here is another beauty by Mary Freeman. Once again she has achieved a lovely antique look.
These quilts end the pictures which I have from the show in Houston. I ran out of time to finish the show. I was rounded up and shewed out of the hall at the end of the last day.
This is just a peak at a new Blackbird design which was hanging in the Moda section at market. Barbara Allen and Barb Adams certainly have lovely designs. It looks just like them, doesn't it?
I was thrilled to meet Kathy Schmitz. She is a sweet and lovely lady. I felt like I knew Kathy because of an email mail I received from her thanking me for posting one of her designs on my blog. I loved being thanked instead of scolded. Kathy and Bonnie Sullivan of All Through the Night are sisters.
Here is a photo of one of her new designs. Soft and sweet.
Julie purchased this beautiful quilt which was hand quilted. from one of the vendors of antique quilts.
I thought I'd share this wonderful wooden smoker with you. I look forward to getting reacquainted with him every December.
These two alpine skiers were a treasure which I found in an antique store many years ago. I learned to ski once I moved to Utah, at the same time my first child took his first lesson. He was three years old when he begged to ski. I decided that I wanted to ski also, and we as a family have numerous memories of our skiing days together.
