There is so much going on the last couple of days - definitely no shortage of things to blog about! I will try to get all the show n tell up this week and there is a LOT. So be patient - yes even those waiting for Dear Jane!
Let's go back to last Saturday. That was the final class for Vintage Moments. This was a year long project that I taught at The Hobby Horse.
|Vintage Moments quilt by Marsha McCloskey|
There were a LOT of people signed up for this class. Not so many got finished. Hmmmm - well - everyone has their reasons for not completing the top - let's hope that we will see those finished quilts at some point.
But let's focus on the quilts that did get done. They are SPECTACULAR!!!!!
|Mary who made hers from green batiks. Love that colour ways!!!|
|Lynn did hers in blues. Just stunning!!!|
|Erica used very scrappy florals. It is fabulous and she added an extra border after the half square triangle border.|
And then we had these quilts - I swear they must have conferred with each other!!!!
|Loretta still has the last two borders to put on, but considering that she broke her wrist in the summer and last month we saw a LOT of bits - she has done remarkably well. The red/white and black is stunning!!!!|
|Linda is also doing red/white and black. It will be fabulous once she gets it finished|
|Jan - the THIRD one in the red/white and black combo! That was very weird. Anyway - this is gorgeous despite ALL the whining!!! Just teasing you Jan!!!! It was so worth it to take those borders off!!!!! The colours are awesome!!!!|
And then we got back into the softer colours again...............
|Susan with a blue/yellow/green theme which is very beautiful!|
|Janet used up scrappy BRIGHT batiks for hers. Note that she nixed that last half square triangle border!!! Looks AWESEOME|
Anne also brought in this quilt, made by her mother and it is gorgeous. Anne and her husband received it as a gift from her mom. Hey MOM - I want a quilt like this!!!!
There you have it - another round of drop dead gorgeous show n tell. I have to say that there was a bit of complaining and whining throughout this quilt. Comments like "this is not a beginner quilt", "look at all those curved seams", "my border is rippled" - oh the comments went on and on! BUT - while it may not be a beginner quilt - it is a LEARNING quilt and I think that everyone in the class learned a LOT. Every time they make a quilt like this - the next one gets even easier and before you know - EVERYONE will be saying - oh - no big deal. That quilt is EASY!!!!!
On that note - it is sewing day today and I have tons to pack in the car.
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!
PS - medical update. Sparky seems to be doing just fine. The whimpering seems to have stopped. Somehow I think she has a bruised jaw? Face area seemed to be the issue. She still has limited access to the stairs, but she is definitely better.
My Mom - she is still in the hospital. That makes ONE WEEK yesterday. She went by ambulance to a bigger hospital for some tests this past week and hopefully she will get the results today.
