Thanks Pat and Eleanor


Pat Nagle visited our Guild last night!
My first driving at night adventure since cataract surgery last week.
Sure glad I cowgirled up and made the trip. We had hot apple cider and....

There were modern traditions.....

Geese flying over Geese
Not Applique!
modern Trip Around the World

..and old,,,,

clever edges and applique combinations
add dramatic interest to Dresden Plates
Log Cabin birdhouse, Star sunshine
I'm always amazed with Eleanor's Fences

...and the cleverest piecing techniques!
scrolling colors
even the border is rainbow
Crazy layer cake

Plus extra lovely quilting, of course:)

Cabbage Rose in HST Feathered Star


Pineapple, one of my favorite stitches

Thanks, Pat! For making the long drive on a cold November evening
to bring patterns and rulers and amazing quilty ideas to share.
Thanks Pat, and Eleanor too, for sharing your cleverness, talent, and fun!
And Thank You! For reading:)
Computer still hurts my eye, so I won't right again for a week or so.
I hope you will stay warm, and enjoy some hot apple cider
along with these Pat and Eleanor quilts.
Happy Thanksgiving

Surprise Quilt Show

Most Saturday mornings I travel 10 miles East to the next tiny town for Writers Club.
But yesterday when I arrived, look what I found!

Burgoyne Surrounded
Local quilters showing their Valor quilts before shipping:)
I was so excited, I texted Alex, "Quilts are here!"
"Mom. they're following you," she wrote back.
Super Quilting
I kept asking every stranger I met, "Where are the rest of the quilts?"
Finally, someone took me to the "craft room." Where I found...

And for Writers' Club? Our group has grown to ten, yet everyone writes something extremely different. Success of the moment goes to Bill, who's screenplay is in post production!

I tried to Photoshop up the values in this so see you could see the red patches better.
Wishing you Quilty Surprises :)
