My adorable niece is performing in a play at the University of Utah, so today was a busy day with both of her Grandmothers arriving into town for the play.  Her parents come tomorrow, and her aunt and uncle come tomorrow afternoon.  We will all be in attendance to let her know how proud of her we all are. 

This is a quilt I've been working on.  I think I will name it, Christmas Or Not.

Now we are back at the museum.  There were several school house quilts.....always one of my favorites.  Little did the maker of these quilts realize that they would one day hang in a museum and be admired by so many.

This school house has panes in the windows and even a door knob.

A charming color combination.

Another Delectable Mountain....very different layout from the one I posted yesterday. I really find this to be an attractive quilt.

A few points cut off in this quilt too.  As Kaye England wrote in one of her books, "I always try to do my best, but if there are points cut off, that okay, they are just hiding."  Completed is better than perfect!!

I do not purposely look for imperfections, but when I see them it makes me smile.

"Guard well your spare moments.  They are like uncut diamonds.  Discard them and their value will never be known.  Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
