Where does the time go??? Blink twice, and another week has rolled around.
I went to a quilt show in Gainesville (TX) Saturday at their civic center. I really liked the size of it. There were several rows of quilts to look over, and vendors set up around the perimeter. Gainesville is about 90 miles from here, and made for a nice little Saturday drive. I got a couple of patterns, an older magazine that's not in print anymore about miniature quilts, and a few fat quarters. The larger quilt shows are nice, but I like the flavor of the small town venue. Here's a sample of what they had to show.
Friday night there was a tutorial over on the HGTV quilting and needlework forum, this one on making fabric postcards. It was taught by Gonesewin, who also happens to be one of my on-line Scrabble buddies. Several years ago I tried my hand at the postcards, but wasn't pleased with it. This class helped simplify it, and I'll probably make a few. This was my class project. Of course there are areas that will improve with diligence and practice, but I think it's cute.
Oh, and before I forget, these are the patterns I got in Gainesville. They're by JudyDidIt Designs, and my patterns came from Barb's Quilt Nook, Etc shop. They'll be cute little wallhangings.
Guess that's it for now. Have a good week everyone.
