I snapped this pix for the DH because he has already collected a bunch of stars fabric that he wants a quilt from.
Yes, you heard me right, HE collected quilt material. Of course, its Yours Truly that ends up actually making it. Sometimes, I feel a lot like the Little Red Hen around here.
He buys me material, “make me a quilt”. He buys me Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock yarn, “make me socks…and a hat…and matching fingerless gloves”. He buys me food, “make me something yummy.” And so I do. Let’s just say he’s a wee bit spoiled.
Speaking of Little Red Hens, here is a wall hanging the combines embroidery, applique and good old-fashioned log cabin squares. Couldn’t you just see this one hanging in the kitchen?
While we’re on animals, here is the cat quilt. Each cat shape was uniquely quilted.
I wish I could get the yellow light all the way out, that’s the trouble with indoors lighting…anyways, I loved the fresh look of the white background with the color blocks pattern this has.
Here’s a better shot of the quilt in close-up. Isn’t it beautiful? Very Fresco! I think I want a picnic!
Finally, on our way out the door, Joanne and I stopped and assembled some quilt blocks for the Northwest Quilters Guild to sew into Comforting Quilts. Comforting Quilts are made for charity giving for those in need of, well, comfort. I liked that they had this station set up with different fabrics all cut out and samples on the wall for us to see and follow…it was a great way for us to participate!
I had fun assembling my block, and thought it was a great way to end our trip to the quilt show.
