Happy Design Wall Monday!! Check out what other quilters are actually getting accomplished at Judy DWM post. Since I’m not getting much done I thought I’d at least take a new picture 🙂 Actually I did get some sewing done and I have the leader-ender half square triangles on my wall to prove it (on the right, see them, yep they are new). I have the 6th and 7th Pinwheel Party blocks almost completed for both the blue & orange quilts but the 8th & 9th ones are already posted. Yikes!!
What I finished is my April First Saturday blocks. Just in time too because May 1st is Saturday!
- Added: 30 (Paducah purchases are killing me!!) Cumulative Added: 91.5 yds
- Used: 0 Cumulative Used: 15 yds
- Net Out/(In): (76.5 yds)
Paducah was fun and the quilts were amazing. Had a hard time picking my favorite, as usual. It was fun to see my latest obsession, Molly & her Owlets, at the show 😉
I was very good at the quilt show this year. I bought things but not too many. I bought fabric but not too much. I had loads of fun and ate lots of good stuff, especially the Boy Scout’s strawberry short cake….yummy.
Yep, that’s it 🙂 Thirty yards of fabric, a Gwen Marston book, new pair of scissors, tumbler template, sewing machine needles, couple of spools of thread (hand quilting, silk and trilobal polyester — went to the thread lecture by Dr. Bob), Cherrywood grab bag, show books and a purse from Kenya! Oh, yeah, and the red blob to the right is a popcorn shirt I picked up as well!
Some of the fabric pictured above is a gift but I got some reproduction prints and some other yummy fabric.
While I was gone, I received an email letting me know my AAQI quilt is up for the May auction!!! Yippeeeee. The “slow & silent” auction starts May 1st through May 10th. Mine is quilt #4965. Here’s hoping it sells.
There is one by Suzanne Marshall (#4961) who’s quilt at Paducah won FIRST in the Small Wall Quilts-Hand Quilted category. Suzanne’s entry in the AQS Lancaster show won BEST Handworkmanship Award for “Vases”. Suzanne doesn’t sell her work so this is a chance to own a piece of her beautiful hand workmanship.
