Last weekend, I made my way over to a quilt show being held here in town. I was in heaven the minute I walked through the door, starting with the delightful women selling tickets as I walked in. I went through the exhibition twice, reveling in the beauty of each and every quilt – the designs, colors and all the skill and love that went into these masterpieces. Be still my heart! My friend Judy, pictured above, is standing next to one of her award winning creations. I’m going to have to ask her for some tips on making something that involves more than just squares.
And speaking of squares, I just couldn’t resist purchasing a bundle of 42 pre-cut squares. The colors and lovely prints were calling my name. For some reason, the squares I cut myself are never really exact like these. I enjoyed wandering the aisles, viewing all the goodies being offered by the various vendors – fabric, sewing machines, patterns, buttons and antiques quilts. It was all a feast for the eyes, as well as the soul, and I’m so glad I didn’t miss this wonderful event, hosted by the local quilters guild. How lucky am I to live in a community filled with so many creative women.
Wishing all of you a beautiful, creative week.
