Life has been very busy around the Squash House these days! So much so that I have not been able to spend much time on the computer other than to keep up with email and make the occasional post! The fence is still a work in progress as is the raised bed project and we think we just might be able to plant this coming weekend! I also attended an all day Embroidery Tips and Techniques class at our local quilt shop on Monday! What a great time we all had! The class was held in one of our many local wineries - it even included wine and cheese tasting in the afternoon!
Last week my friends Carol and Amelia (no blogs) and I attended the Krazy Horse Quilters show in Pendleton, Oregon. It was just the right size - not too large and not too small. The quilts were extraordinary! Here is just a sample of what we saw. Enjoy!
The quilt below was hand-quilted using a variegated brown/tan thread - you might be able to see more by clicking on the photo!
What a great use of Pat Sloan's Arabella line (one of my favorites) below!
We all stared in awe at the quilt below - I believe the note said she used over 150 different Polka dot fabrics in all!
The gorgeous hand quilted sampler below was made by one of our own quilt guild members - a man! He does the most incredible work - you just can't get over how perfect his stitches are!
I hope you enjoyed the show! Don't forget to leave me a comment before noon on Saturday --- ideas on how to hang different size quilts in my studio so they can easily be rotated!
