Spring Fever!!

I guess I have a bad case of Spring Fever.  I can't seem to get my act in gear to post, but I did want you all to know I'm still here!  What have I been up to?  Some sewing - but nothing I can show you, unfortunately.  I'm just beginning a Supreme sewing job for Stephanie which I should be able to show you in the early Fall.  I'm also doing some applique for a dear friend, but can't show you that either. 
What to do....how about show you some of my recent baking? I tried my hand at homemade hamburger rolls and they were a complete success! The recipe is from King Arthur Flour.  They were quite easy and so tasty!  I did have to buy a specialty pan, however.  I couldn't find a pan just for hamburger buns, but this pan for large muffins tops worked just the same, I do believe!  Give them a try - you'll be amazed at the difference between these and store bought!

Mr. Squash and I traveled to Pendleton last Saturday for the Krazy Horse Quilters show.  It was terrific!  Mr. Squash made all the ladies laugh - he said he thought he was going to a gun show when asked how it was I managed to get him to come with me!  The quilts and workmanship were exquisite all around!  Here are just a few of the many wonderful entries!




This was all hand quilted!










Everyone was so taken with this one I couldn't get a photo without a person standing there in awe!

Another completely hand quilted beauty!  This is also done by a man, and from my guild, no less!
The featured quilter was Peggy Gelbrich.  I just loved this house quilt!

I also met a new exhibitor at the show.  I'll tell you all about her in my next post!

They are all wonderful but I saw the gypsy kisses in there! Loved that. I aspire to mine looking that great. I want those hamburger buns.

Mary said...

Those are beautiful quilts. Did the buns taste as good as they look?

Oh my...the house one is my favorite. I'll be having a giveaway soon that has the pattern for that Christmas quilt.

I think I like the house quilt best. I think everyone likes house quilts.
The setting using the big star center with the embroidery blocks around is a unique look. Shows off both the embroidery and the piecing.

Guns and Quilts...something for he and something for she. :o) Such a wonderful variety of quilts.

Looks to have been a good show...how far did you have to drive for it? I have been waiting to hear about your trip. Cathy called me that night and told me that you introduced yourself to her! Yay!

Almost drug my quilting buddy to Pendleton for the show, despite her recent foot surgery. Love the house quilt too, but I'm so attracted to the scrappy squared up wedding ring quilt. Color choices make it look so American Jane & I know I've seen that pattern out and about somewhere...does anyone know which company this one is?
