Local Quilt Show 2016


Went to our local quilt show here in town. Jacksonville Quiltfest 2016. "All That Stash" I pushed really hard to get this crumb quilt done. I knew it would be the perfect time to show it off. After all...it was made using every last bit of my stash!!! And a lot of other people's stashes too....hehe!! 

Took my Mom to see the show... we walked in and I asked her
"Where would you like to start Mom?" "Well, I want to see your quilts Dear...that's why I'm here!"
I love my MOM!!!

3,475 pieces...yes I counted...twice!!! LOL!!!
I started this quilt in 2010 after taking a "crumb" block class from Bonnie Hunter...here in Jacksonville at Quiltfest...she was a quest teacher.

Then my Happy Scrappy Twist mini won a Judges Recognition ribbon... Yeah!!!
Mom found my second quilt!!!
Then after finding my quilts she was happy to look all around and shop with me. Here are some pics of MY favorite quilts I saw....

This was probably my FAVorite!!! The quilting on this quilt is just sublime!!! I took a whole bunch of close ups!!!

See what I mean!!! Amazing!!



This was made by my new friend Kate...yeah!!!

I loved this quilt!!! Its log cabins!!! and they look like seahorses!!! So, stinking cute!!! 
I even met up with my Jacksonville Bestie on another day (Becky...in the back) and we shopped until we couldn't hardly hold our bags anymore!!! Of course we had to go to our FAVORITE shop and get hugs like every hour or so from the SWEETEST shop owners on the planet!!! Lynn and Bob!!! They own Counrty Cross Roads Quilt Shop out in Orange Park, Jacksonville, Florida
You will never walk away unhappy from their shop... and You will always feel good inside and have a smile stretched across your face when you leave. They are just those kind of people.

And finally here is my quilt at home hanging in the front hall on the big rack. Under my vintage metal sign collection.
Thanks for stopping bye...see ya soon.

100 Days 100 Blocks Happy Style!!

                I jumped on the 100 days 100 blocks TRAIN.... toot toot!!! ..... and I am having a COLORFUL blast!!! My color choice for this quilt is Kaffe Fassett and Kona Solids. Because that is what I have on hand. I am using that stash!!! And I am totally HAPPY with the results so far!!!!

        Scream in your face HAPPY COLORS..... YEAH!!!!! My kinda quilt!!!
 The following photos were taken at the end of each section in the book.... I would lay all the blocks on my Dining table and do a group shot so I could see my progress.
                                                                             
Blocks 1-15 Crosses
 Blocks 16 - 35 Rectangles
                                                               Blocks 36 - 55 Triangles

                                                              Blocks 56 - 70 Strips

This is as far as I have gotten...I'm on block 72 today... I believe there are two more sections to the book. Then all 100 blocks will be done. I am just trilled with myself for keeping up. Of course there are incentives...a bunch of prizes at the end if you do....lol!!!  I will totally share the last two sections when they are done...and of course the quilt when it is done.

 The book is called.... 100 Modern Quilt Blocks Tula Pink's City Sampler.

Other sewing adventures I'm on....currently doing a HUGE secret sewing job for RJR Fabrics Blog Hop ..."What Shade Are You?" I can NOT wait to show you what I have been doing for that!!!

 Until next time.....
