Packing up and heading out

"What, you lay quilts down and don't expect me to make myself comfortable?!"

I'm heading out of town for a bit - I'm teaching in Tucson, AZ at the quilter's guild. On the way we are camping in Arches, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park, the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and Page (Lake Powell, so we can tour lower Antelope Canyon). What a great trip, yes!?

Interwoven - Progress, Problems and Challenges

 After a couple of months of sewing I have something to show you.  Sometimes I never know where I'm going to end up when I start a project and that leads to extra challenges and some sleepless nights!

The Sue Patten Collection, part of the Upper Midwest Quilt Show 2014

Sue Patten

Hi again! I'm almost ready to blog about the string pieced quilt I've been working on all summer, but in the meantime I thought I'd share with you some quilts that were part of a special exhibit at the Upper Midwest Quilt Show.  These quilts are all made by Sue Patten and are thread painted or embroidered!  I thought they were amazing.

Upper Midwest Quilt Show 2

 Above the Timberline by Kathleen Hughes

This is another beautiful quilt from Machine Quilting Today's Upper Midwest Quilt Show last weekend.  I thought I'd share more of these quilts with you and some detail shots. I hope you like them.

Upper Midwest Quilt Show - Ann Horton

Ann Horton's quilt "Nine Lives Animal Shelter"
 I'm not the best blogger I guess... This week I'm too busy with everything NOT quilting except for this morning. Instead of coming up with an informative technique blog, I'm just going to show you one of the quilts I saw today at the Upper Midwest Quilt Show in Oconomowoc, Wiscsonsin.  I hope you love this quilt as much as I do!
I have lots of detail photographs because I was so charmed by this quilt.  (I have a kitty and a dog which were rescued at animal shelters.)

Ann Fahl Quilts

University of Wisconsin, Madison  July 2014

 I had a tough tough time this week and as a consequence I did absolutely nothing on any of my quilting projects.
