Design Wall Monday
On my design floor for today are the blocks for the Quilters World mysyery quilt. I am going to set mine on point with a narrow sashing in between the blocks, and partial blocks along the outside edge. I like the partial blocks oriented so that the outside edge looks consistent. Visit Judy at Patchwork Times to see more inspirational ideas.
My dear SIL (who was my friend before she was my SIL!) came this weekend from NC to attend the East Cobb Quilters Guild Quilt Show. We were there for a good part of the day on Friday, enjoying all the beautiful quilts and supporting all the vendors! Both of us forgot a camara, so we ordered the dvd. We did jot down a few notes on quilts that appealed to us (I favor more traditional, she likes more art quilts). It was so great to spend time with her, and to have a fellow quilter to share ideas and fabric with! We plan on doing it again when the guild hosts their next show two years from now. On Saturday , we managed to visit three local quilt stores but we must have been on sensory overload, because we didn't buy much!
