Invention, Prizes, color, fabric and fun!
The Farm Chicks Show in Spokane is coming up along with my Retreat the next day. Plan to come and shop the antiques, collectibles and Cottage, Shabby Chic,old tablecloths, linens,furniture,clothing and everything you can imagine to make you excited about collections and making your house adorable! My schedule is here for June-Marylouweidman.com
NOTICE- if you did a cow quilt you would like to share with a quilt show, write to me. I have two shows that want cow quilts for a complete cow quilt show (that is to say a portion of the show will be all cows)-the cow quilt below is done by Miss Tina who will be our cook for the retreat this year! She is flying in from Cowafornia.....
The cow quilt below is done by Sue Cresse (Cowmen Miranda_
For the cow pattern and great other patterns like the alphabet below and the chicks and cats and flowers and loads of other things, buy this book! If you order from me, you get a fat quarter of great fabric, a pattern and a pin.
Border ready for a story to go in the middle- love the bird don't you?
Here is a hoochy block made with my quilters fabric...so fun and look at the light these fabrics provide!
Keko Goki does some of my favorite quilts and why? Because she doesn't worry that things don't match! How clever is she? And she is not one of those boring "I have to match everything" people-she is inventive and original and she has fun!
Below is how I feel when I do not have time to sew and invent and be with my quilting friends! Can you relate?
We complain about having to carry a sewing machine to class from the car....look at this great woman and she isn't complaining either!
This is a photo of how I feel when I get to sew in Maui or at the ocean at Whidby or Lopez Island or at the lake with friends....I may not look this way but I feel this way and we all do because we are happy, we are creating and we are all positive with invention and friendship!
Thanks to all of you who keep coming in even during Spring when things slow down...I appreciate you.
I have a stack of fabric and will send out five big chunks to five lucky people who I draw from girls who comment here!
