Almost 2 months!! Oh my!!

I am beyond speechless that it’s been almost two months since I posted anything here. My goodness, where did the time go???

I went to a quilt show yesterday and was amazed at all the beautiful quilts. I think there were 200 quilts there as well as vendors. I did not buy anything – good for me!!

Here are some pictures of the quilts that I especially liked. I was amazed at the talent and the number of wall hanging. What I didn’t see was a lot of traditional quilts. That disappointed me. It seemed most of them were more fiber art than actual quilts that you could use. Still, it was an enjoyable afternoon.

This quilt was made by my friend, Gil. He was our Industrial Arts teacher until he retired. He and his wife discovered quilting. He pieces the quilts and she quilts them. How cool is that?!

  1. Hi!
    First I have to say... your cat is adorable! And secondly, what gorgeous quilts! I especially love the three Wise Men - beautiful! Hope to see you over at my history blog - It's about St. Nicholas!

  2. Love love love the snowmen. The one Gil made is very nice. The wise men also. Glad you got to go.

  3. WOW!!! I both missed you, and yet, admire your ability to stay away from blogging for so long!
    The beginning of the new school year is very busy for Teachers and HS Moms, too! Thanks for your comment on Grace - our last year! YEA!!!

    BTW: love the car - what a hoot and face-lift for any tired old vehicle! Hm... wonder if that concept would work on Husb... Nah! never mind...

  4. There are some gorgeous quilts, it must have been a fun day.

  5. Beautiful! I am happy just to make a reasonably straight patchwork!

  6. Susan, Thanks for your comment about my Dad! You are always kind! Prayers for him, he has been diagnosed with cancer this year. God love you!
    You are most creative - I look forward to more crafty ideas! School break soon for Christmas! It is snowing like a barrel of monkeys here in Western New York! My husband is out in it for work - I pray for his safe return tonight. Well, out to shovel! Heigh-Ho!
    Many Blessings to you and your family.
