Yesterday I went to a local quilt show. It was an annual seminar they call Quilting with Machines. It is only about a 40 minute drive from my house. I packed my lunch, did a little shopping, looked at a few quilts, and met my friend for lunch. She texted me just before I left to say she was bringing her lunch. I had planned on going out somewhere, so I hurriedly packed something. I have to say that it was the most perfect lunch I have had in a long time. We had planned on sitting at tables that were set up outside, but since I had gone to my car to take my vendor goodies out when my friend arrived, I called her over. I had backed my car up to a grassy, shaded bank. I have an old wool crazy quilt in my car, and decided to spread it out on the grass and we ate our lunch and talked and I showed her what I had bought at the vendors. I haven't had anything resembling a picnic in forever. It was so pleasant.
I saw a few quilting details at the show that I liked.
I don't know who's quilt this is.. can't really give you details on the quilting, although I think it may have been one of those auto stitching long-arms. I like the striped quilting on the borders. I have done quilted stripes on several of my quilts, a full size Baltimore Album, and at least one miniature. I just think that it is a classy look. Plus the fact that my feathers stink, and I don't have a fancy machine that will stitch them for me, stripes are easy to do and they look good.
Right now, I am, or should be, working on my guild newsletter. I'm online to find ideas for stashbusting. I have had a continuing theme this year of stashbusting ideas. On the other hand, my stash just keeps growing.
So I should get to it I guess. I hope that you all have a great weekend!
