Starting a new week!

Happy Monday and the start of a fresh new week!

As mentioned yesterday, my camera battery died while attending the Cal-Co Quilt Guild quilt show yesterday, so I didn’t get to take as many pictures as I would have liked.  But I will share what I did manage to snap pic’s of.

I wish I had thought to write  down the names of the ladies who made the quilts, but I didn’t.  So if you are local and reading this, let me know and I will add your name!

This was called “Mark Twain”  It has pictures of Tom and Huck and excerpts on Mark Twain.  You know how I love to read, and just thought this was an awesome quilt!

This one reminded me of my Grandma Mac.  She was so crafty!

This woman took all the applique on a trip that she and her husband took.  She sat in the back seat while he drove around on their vacation and she made up all these little dresses while she imagined what she would have worn way back when..

    I got to go to a quilt show on Saturday and bought some red and aqua fabric for Jane’s swap too. Great quilts in the show you went to.
    Your quilt is just perfect. I love the rick rack on the border. Great idea.

    Hi Melissa, love all the quilt pic’s – the flag one was so neat esp. oh heck they’re all cool, i love to see others work and ideas – it inspires me always. i have a stupid question about the binding on your pumpkin patch quilt – did you use rick rack or did you make it that way, i’ve never seen that look and would love to know how you did it, if you don’t mind sharing.
