new sample for fabric wrapping club

Here is my newest creation and will be used as a sample for my next class. It is such great fun to wrap. This one actually curves in at the top and has a matching plate. I am now going to make a box and a hat (since everyone puts the bowls on their head, I thought I would make a hat and make it legal :) Happy quilting all!!

back from sisters

What a wonderful time I had. Spent the night before in Bend with a friend and then she and I hit the town on Saturday. We got there by 8:30 and there was already a traffic line, but the weather was warm (but with a breeze so not that bad) and beautiful. Lots of friendly people, lots of places to shop, some wonderful fabric, and some quilts. Well, OK, a LOT of quilts!. being more on the art quilting side of things, I did not see a lot that spoke to me, though there were plenty of beautifully made, more traditional bed quilts there, just not so much my cup of tea. My friend though, that is her cup and she loved the quilts and the colors (apparently hers is now browns and purples and mine are bright and bold. Do you find that what you are drawn to changes as well??). Will most likely go again, just for the rejuvination. Now, off to use some of that inspiration and wrap a teapot! Happy quilting all!

Nothing like last minute planning. Got my sitter just last night arranged so that my friends and I can go tonight to Bend and then tomorrow off to see the Sisters quilt show, yeah!! Got a last minute hotel, last minute sitter, and hopefully will find some lovely fabric and see a bunch of fantastic quilts!!! Happy quilting all!
