Home and QUILTS!

I'm home!  What a trip!
I'm so in awe of where we just were, I have no words to share right now... just look.




More on that later...
I'm happy to be home.

 
We all ran down to the Empire Guild show...
EEEK! I was thrilled, I have a Judges choice ribbon and 
a second place for machine quilting ribbon on "THE STAR SPLITTER"quilt.
(It really paid off learning those blasted feathers!)

 This is the group quilt I entered for the show.
It is from a photo I took (below), and four of us each took a section 
to do our own thing to make one statement. We wanted 4 complete different looks to make one unit.

And lastly, my little NYC landmarks quilts, named "Beauty points" (left quilt, black red blue)

 Iran into Helen sporting her V-string Vest!
(stop by her blog and say hi... the name stuck! Helen no blog!)

 And pal Andrea with her Roses Quilt and a ribbon for best use of color!
Thsi si the quilt that brought the two of together as friends... Her color sense is fantastic.
Remember her other piece she was making at the retreat? scraps from this quilt. Beautiful!

Saw many other quilt pals today... Teri, Susan, John... So much fun!

Off to see some more Quilt pals tomorrow, and red and white show Monday... 
only so many CROWDS I can take in one day!

later gators, I'm exhausted...

So nice to be home!

  1. Welcome home! Your photos are breathtaking - what an amazing trip that must have been!

    Congrats on your ribbon win. That really is an incredibly beautiful quilt. I saw the group quilt on Pat Sloan's blog - it's wonderful too! And I absolutely love Andrea's quilt. I visited her blog after she guest-posted on yours because I just HAD to see the pictures and they wouldn't show on your site. Oh wow! What talent you ladies have. You are so inspirational!

  9. What great photos...imagine what it must have been like actually living there...probably not much time to sit and admire the view, though! Did you have to walk out, in the end?
    Star splitter REALLY deserves its ribbons! Obviously the judges there know a good quilt when they see it, for Andrea's roses are fabulous too! And I love Helen's vest...ideas...!
