Catch Up

Its been over a month since I posted, time to catch up.
My first visit to Quilt Week in Paducah!

My Phebe quilt, "The Cotheals at Home", won Honorable Mention in the First Time Paducah entry, Bed Quilts Longarm Quilted. This is what I look like after only 4 hours of sleep.

I had lunch with another quilter, Mona, who I met at Houston last fall and this is her quilt in the show, "Sunset over Lac Clara"! Nice to see you again, Mona!

Did you know I'm a calendar girl? Well, actually my "Selvage Star of Bethlehem" quilt is pictured in the 2016 Quilt Art Engagement Calendar! Here I am (in pink) at the calendar signing party on the first evening we were in Paducah. I must have had some coffee by then because I'm looking more awake.

Here it is, the very last quilt in the book! Lots more happened in Paducah - quilts, shopping, eating plus a few interesting experiences with our bus tour. I don't know that anyone from Paducah, KY reads my blog but "Thank You!" for being friendly and offering help when we needed it!

 Back home again, I needed a UFO finish for May so here it is, quilted by another guild member, Susan McMillan. I'm fairly sure that while I was working on it, I had a brown cloud hanging over me. I initially named it "Serengetti Oaks" because the border fabric reminded me of zebras and an African safari. I'm thinking of renaming it ...

"Second Spring" from a quote by Albert Camus.

"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
