Now it's done!

These are the two little quilts I won in the silent auction.  I talked to the gal today and asked about the necktie quilt and she said I was outbid by $5!!  Ahh, such is life! But I got two little cuties!

Last of it

Of course, this isn't anywhere near all the quilts in the show..just the ones that REALLY called to me.

The following are Dear Jane blocks (which I've done) but loved the setting and the lighter to darker setting in the center area as well as the border (NO TRIANGLES!  LOL).

This small beauty included just a few of the Dear Jane blocks, triangles and all four corners.

 This one was made by a lady for her husband on his retirement from the McKinney Police Dept.  Beautiful!!

 And this one was just colorful, wild and crazy!!  What's not to love?!!

Silent auction

The quilt show had lots of little quilts hanging in their silent auction area.  The one my friend and I liked the best was a tiny quilt with 4 rows of dress shirts and neckties.  TOO CUTE (and yes, I bid on it)

There were two other tiny things that were Halloween related and one that had 4 leaves on it.  I THOUGHT I'd taken pictures of all of them but guess not.  😕  I bid on these 4.  They did have a buy it now option but I just left bids.  We'll see if I hear anything..probably not.  (PS-I DID get a call saying I got 2 of the 4 I bid on but couldn't understand her message.  Pretty sure the bowties wasn't one of them but that's OK).

And just a few more beauties from the show!

Quilt Plano

My friend and I went to a quilt show yesterday and I'm glad we went.  I usually don't do anything on the anniversary of Frank's death so wanted to 'break the mold' and get out.  It was a really great show, well attended, great vendors and BEAUTIFUL quilts!  I'll show a few for the next couple of posts.

This stunning quilt was best of show!!  The quilting, the embellishments, the applique ALL spectacular!  Very deserving of the award.

Such a simple quilt but a great and different way to use 9 patches.

This one was called Birds of Sorrow and she talked about putting it together after (or during) a rough patch.  I wish you could read the little poem on the lower left of the quilt.  Very cool.

Ummm, just WOW!

I just a sucker for anything with a civil war vintage vibe to it and this one fit the bill.

Big Nines

I'm liking these blocks..16" square, quick, easy.  What could be better.  Found them over at Amanda's blog and thought 'hmm, I think I have several solids like that' so decided to use them for this quilt.  She made hers baby size but I'll probably make mine 4x5 (64x80 I think).

Think I need to make 13 more!!
