Sit back and relax. It's time for a little show and tell!!

I went to a quilt retreat this weekend and put together this colorful quilt. (It helped that I had it all cut out and ready to sew!:):)
Here is one of my favorite quilts that I've made. This was a Bonnie Hunter class. In this class she taught you how to use all the little leftover pieces. ( Remember, you pay for the left overs too!!:):)
Here's another class. The rose has about 67 pieces of fabric layered to create the depth in the rose and leaves.
My one block wonder. I didn't have enough fabric, so I had to improvise to get this quilt a little bigger. ( I added the sunflowers) Sometimes, that makes for the best art. :):)
Just so you know that I don't just quilt. I love to play with paper too!! Here is a little ATC book I made to hold an ATC trade that I was in. I'm a huge ATC hound:):):) I have over 1000. I just can't get enough of them:):)
Here is a look inside!!
And here is my friend , Lori's ATC. Just beautiful!!
So, This is me and some of my art. I hope you enjoyed!!

Sandie, congratulations on your blog award! Your quilt retreat sounds like a great time! It's been quite a while since I've had time to go to one of those. I did go to the NQA Quilt Show in Columbus, OH this year, though.
