No responsibility will be taken for numb bums!!
Before we start....
Get a BIG cup of coffee and a comfy chair!!!
(this is picture heavy!!)
Due to the Blizzard AGAIN.....
Minot,ND had to be put off till Worldwide Quilt Day!!
Look at that dog...sneaks into EVERY SINGLE picture!!
Quick visit with the Wednesday Girls who were having a sewing day.
Gave a quick lesson on how to comment on blogs,
a snapshot of Colleen Winter's Baltimore Autumn Block 1
Completely needle turned..even the little berries!!
This was my first attempt at block one... and for sure my last with this project!!
I will be using Heat and Bond!!
Minot Quilt Show ~ What a Hoot!
It was really hard to get good pictures with poor lighting
the exhibits hanging so close together.
Best of Show
The stitching was amazing...
Daisies and pebbles...
I noticed the trend was super heavy quilting on most of the quilts.
Some of my favorites....
These YoYo's were darling....
Brenda King needs to make this to go with her beach bag!!
I thought Tracey Holzer would have admired this Star!!
This was "Ted's Coffin Liner"....
Cross Stitch and Quilting
It was a wedding gift from her mother-in-law and took her 36 years to complete.
Her husband joked he'ld never see it done
it would probably line his coffin someday!!
This little piece was thread painted flowers
The detail was fabulous...Justin pointed this one out to me!!
There was an exhibit of mini quilts which perked my interest
since Tracey Holzer and I are participating
in The Quilt Gallery's 'Dreaming of Spring' Exchange
These were works of art....
How cute is this?
Pat Speth was their Trunk Show Quilter.
She had a showing of Nickle Quilts.
There was a flea market...
which the only thing I sadly left behind was this mini Singer.
There were 12 vendors which I reserved myself to just a couple of purchases
I think I know a little bambino on the way that needs a farm inspired quilt!!
A Growth Chart....
Some pins and pads of paper..
And for the banner...
a little 'Duetz' tractor and some flowers...
I know... I know.. not JD but squint and it could be!!
Where Justin purchased these 5 toed shoes with socks to match...
To do some Garage research but look what was on sale!!
Goes perfectly with Justin's shoes!!
Any of my friends will attest
to the fact that a quilting excursion(or any for that matter) with me
take you down paths you did not expect!!!
Now bring summer on!!!
