Gold Bug Quilters Quilt Show 2014

My husband and I always attend our local Quilt Guilds quilt show every year.  Why is it that the  men always get in free?
I mean, thats great and all but what the heck eh and then he wonders why I make him carry everything! Ha!
 
Here are some beautiful quilts that we saw...minis are up first...
 
 
 Love this kitty!!
 
 
Gorgeous color in this one...and variegated thread....
 
 
This one had a staine glass look...very pretty!!
 
Now on to some bigger quilts...

 
I just loved all the embroidery on this one...
love all these sayings and
they are all true...quilters make the best friends....
 


This one was just so cute and whimsical...love those birds
and flowers...just lots of great colors and it made me smile...
 


 
Growing up we had a Pink Hibiscus tree in our front yard, it
had a large limb that was held up by a big post, it made a curve in
the tree that was perfect for reclining and reading a book...I loved that tree andall those big beautiful pink flowers...
this quilt was awesome!!
 


There were tons more quilts but these were some of my favorites...
cant wait until next year!

Its a Sister Thing Swap Reveal!


Michelle @ Quiltsfrommycrayonbox.blogspot.com 
had the 
"Its a Sister thing Swap" 
again this year, I just had to join in, 
her swaps are always so fun!!

The person chosen to be my "sister" was 
Bea of Beaquilter blog...
http://www.beaquilter.com/, her job was to 
stalk my blog and figure out what I like....


Look at what she sent! Awesome!!


A super duper cute little bunny table runner, 
its appliqued, its so sweet and fun!  Then I got some thread, a bumblebee pincushion
with the pattern, some batik charm squares,  batik 2" strips, a super duper cute little scissor holder that looks like Beas
signature little owl, and a great book on borders and a couple of patterns.....


I love it all...
Thank you Bea for being such a wonderful sister to me!!

Quilty Stitches Reveal




I used to do alot of cross stitch when 
my son was young,
I did many samplers and Paula Vaughn pictures.
I really enjoyed it and sort of forgot just how much till I saw this.....

The Quilty Stitches SAL
@ Littlemissshabby.blogspot.com
I decided to join in...


This little Quilty sampler was just too simple 
and cute to pass up!  
We did one block every 2 weeks.  
It grew and grew, I added gray as a 
backgound color for a more modern look.  I love how it turned out!! 

Now to find a frame for it....
