It's Friday!

Between power sewing the Box Kite I shared on Wednesday, company, my moms funeral, and 
this outrageous hike (click to see more about that hike!) up to 10,358 elevation this is all I have to show you this week. 

There are a few more links to the Porch quilt that you can see HERE.

Love to you all!

Betty's Box Kite

 Well, You all may remember my conundrum- I wrote about it HERE. I was trying to keep the integrity of the designer's assembly instructions but it wasn't working at all! I redrafted it in EQ and sent her photos comparing my EQ and hers and the end result was very similar. I called, we chatted, and she agreed to revising the directions.  So, I started all over.
 I took a day all to myself,  before company came in,  and got this top put together! Woop! Woop!
My Electric Quilt drawing.
 And the quilt! Ta-da!

It's not perfect, but its done and winging its way to the owner!

Have a wonderful day!

Porch Quilt Month 3

Here we are on our 3rd block of the Porch Quilt by Jan Patek.

Here's my block. Whenever I see the others that are being made I always wish mine looked like theirs~!

Cathy S blocks. I like the centers she put in her flowers.
Lizzy's block. Bright, cheery and summery.
Here is Debby Dodds house and flag! Love it!

Follow THIS link to see Karen's charming basket block! And THIS link for Cynthia's blog. THIS link for Rebecca's blog and THIS link for Randy's.

Send me your photo or let me know the link of your blog post and I'll link it here.

Happy Monday!

Antique Quilts at Sisters

 Look at this amazing quilt! It was for sale at the show and if I would have had some cash laying around my house I would have loved to purchase it! It's beautiful! It's quirky! It gets more fun and unusual the more I look at it!
 Which way is up?
 Love the yellow and the reverse applique on the bud. They are all unique. Most of them only have 2 slits with the bud peaking through.
 Sort of a weird reverse applique around the edge. Mountains? Trees? 
 This fun ocean waves with green center was for sale.
I love this diagonal cable quilting on this simple Irish Chain.
 There was a display in the clock shop of a woman who had collected these beauties.
 So colorful!
 Low volume, but it wasn't always like that. This quilt was well executed.
 This was displayed in the men's section. The quilt top was vintage....
 And a man quilted it. Love these circles!
My Instagram feed for the week.

Monday (the 18th) we will be sharing our Porch quilts! If you have finished any of the sections and have not shown it, please send me a photo or the link to your blog. 

Have an excellent weekend!

Sisters Quilt Show

I'm going to get a little ahead of myself...

Release the Geese II by Sarah Bond
And tell you this one was at the top of the list for my favorite at the quilt show. This was included in a special exhibit of Quilt Con quilts. Every time I walked by I saw something more I liked about it.

 The speaker after dinner in the park on Friday (which was moved into the high school because of the rain) was Laura Wasilowski.  She was hilarious! Her quilts were pretty fun and spectacular as well. Here was a little series of quilts about her favorite chair. Hers are not quilts I make, but would love to take a class with her.
Funny, this ordinary quilt was at the top of my list for a favorite too. The collection of fabric made this one so unique! I loved the map too.(I have a little something for maps) Maybe it was a favorite because I can see my son liking this one after his travels.

This one of a kind quilt was made with baby clothes. So darn cute!
The Stitchin Post had an exhibit of Kona color of the year. The yellow was certainly unusual and eye catching.
This one reminded me of our Medallion challenge theme for the month- a liberated style log cabin quilt. (must get busy on my challenge!)

 Every year I see a a few of the same patterns, this year was Gypsy Wife by Jen Kingwell. Most of them were super colorful but this one was not. Very unusual quilt.

Take care and enjoy your Wednesday, my friends.
