I brought Portage Paulene, & Crowpass Corrine out from the guest room today.
I also hung "Why?" on the door in the corner, & set an up light on the floor behind it, so that it shines through the window of the door at night. It makes a nice nightlight. This is our winter door, so it'll be switched out soon, & the summer door will spend the winter in it's place.
Below are the 3 small quilts I won at the small quilt auction at our quilt show this weekend.
It was funny, when I first saw this purple hearts quilt hanging in the auction, my 1st thought was "Oh, I like how that's quilted", rapidly followed by, "gee, it looks familiar", then "Oh, no wonder! I was the one who quilted it!"Well I decided I wanted it, so I bought it! The original quilt maker was unknown, the block was found in our guild stash.
This little blue star quilt was made by my friend Kathy Harte. The quilting was done from the reverse side, following a printed panel, what you see here is bobbin thread. I think I may turn this into a throw pillow.
This last one is by my friend Jackie Carley. It was hand painted & stamped & machine quilted. I love the colors. It puts a nice punch of color on my wall.
Have any of you noticed the changes in Quilters Newsletter lately? I was thinking seriously of discontinuing my subscription until these changes came about. It seems to have more news now. I'm liking it better again.
Speaking of news. The La Conner Quilt Museum, in La Conner Washington, is having a special 10th anniversary celebration at the end of September, & they notified me today that they want to use my "Oh! To Dance With a Dolphin!" quilt for their publicity for the "Blue Ribbon Quilts" show that it'll be hanging in. I am honored!
