I spent today working on 2 quilts for Abbi Mays and it felt good.
I like the flowers the best and enjoyed quilting that one most.
Here is a close up view.

I decided to just do the meandering for the Christmas quilt.

I am also getting ready to do a fall quilt for Sandy, a neighbor. It is a large quilt and I don't have the batting that is large enough, so I am piecing the batting together now.

I did get my nails done and they have spiders painted on them. :) That is fun.

I did some cleaning and filing.

So, it was a productive day.

DD had trumpet lessons tonight and her teacher said she was doing a great job. She is reading music fairly well. I'm so proud of her.

It's been a good day.

Sunday sewing

Well, I finally took photos of some of the stuff from Quilt Market. Now to make the patterns and use the templates. Isn't that always the case?
This the the one I call Marianne's star. What fun this is going to be to play with.

I also sewed this evening. I did some embroidered hearts for the love quilt. This is the state it is in at this point. I want to make it longer and then add a larger border. I want to get this finished this week.

Birthday Block

I sewed a little tonight. I made the monthly Birthday block and got it done in time.

My friend Marianne sent me the templates for her block. I call it Marianne's star because I love the way she puts it together. Thank you, Marianne.

Quilt Market

Went to Quilt Market to represent Abbi May's quilt shop. What fun we had. Some of the fabrics were just spectacular. Tammy is my friend on the right that I went with.

I love this pattern. I could see these fabrics used with a dark brown. Lots of tote bag ideas. This poppy fabric was amazing.

I got to see Gina again. I really need to figure out how to embroider on clothing better.

This is a baby quilt I have to make. The 3D aspect with novelty inside it.

Met Mark Lipinski at Market too.

We stayed with Tammy's cousin and he had Candy, the parrot. Isn't she beautiful? She adopted me and made sure to let me know when I was not showing her enough attention. Seemed to want to eat everything I had too. LOL
