I've been missing in action for the last week--not because I have been that busy--just very lazy.
The skies have been overcast and it's been pretty cool outside (even snow on Sunday--ack!), so I think I am going into hibernation mode!
|I forced myself to get my Pie in the Sky blocks put together.|
This quilt is a riot of color and really fun to put together!
|The best thing about Pie in the Sky is that it burns up 48 fat quarters--love that!!|
The other best thing is that I won't be taking it to another retreat--yee-haw!
Pie in the Sky is the cover quilt on Kim Diehl's book Simple Graces.
|I finally got this months Dixie Diary blocks completed--Shooting Stars.|
On our way to quilt camp earlier this month, Sandi and I stopped at the St. Cloud Heritage Quilter's Running with Scissors quilt show. Most of the photos I took were inspirational close-ups of machine quilting I plan to "borrow", but the following pics are a few of the highlights for me:
|This was a fabulous quilt!|
|They had very cool handmade ribbons.|
|I wish I had a closeup of this one--so many pieces and perfect!|
|There were several One Block Wonder quilts--this one was especially pretty.|
I've been on a quest to find my copy of the One Block Wonder book--I know it's here somewhere!
|The tiny prairie point edging was a fun finish for this quilt.|
|This star was hung up pretty high so it was hard to get a good photo, but you can see it's stunning!|
