Baby Blankets

Sorry I have negelected my blog lately. I just haven't had much to say.

Anyway I figured I would make some baby blankets for a craft fair.
Don't be fooled -  they were easy to make.
This is part of them.
I put them on craig's list this morning - hopefully I can get rid of them there.

Blogger's Quilt Festival Win

I was on my way back from JoAnn's and couldn't resist taking this picture. The wind was blowing pretty good and the flag looked so awesome and so big.
I'm sorry about not blogging before now but things have been hectic as usual.
I thought I would share the good news that I won a viewer's choice award on the Blogger's Quilt Festival.

I am so thrilled - I never win anything and this was so great. I guess it payed to con all my friends to go vote.
There were so many awesome quilts

More Quilts and Santa

Here are a few more pictures of some quilts I really liked at Houston Quilt Festival.
I really like whole cloth quilts and applique.
A little of both is great

The quilting on the was awesome. Maybe someday I will be that good.

And here is the Santa my daughter fell in love with (and bought). Isn't it awesome

A Partial Finish

I was able to get my Dresden Plate out of the frame yesterday.
I wish I could say it was finished but I can't.
I will have to put it back in the frame to complete 3 side borders.
It turned out alot better than I thought it would.
I was really worried about the varagated thread but I think it looks good.

I will have to put it on hold for awhile so I can get a few things done for Christmas.

Houston Quilt Festival

I went to my 1st Quilt Festival this past weekend.
My mother came down and my daughter drove. We left Friday and went to the Festival on Saturday.
One day was definately not enough.
My husband said he would take me next year and we would do a couple of days. My mother and daughter enjoyed it so much that they want to go back too.
I took a few pictures - even got in trouble for taking one I wasn't supposed to.
We only saw about a third of the quilts displayed.

My daughter loves cats and she fell in love with this one.
She's not a quilter but she can appreciate the quality.

My other daughter likes houses so I took this one for her. It was huge

You can't tell by the picture but this one has alot of sparklies

I thought this one was awesome. It was one of my favorites

This one is of the Houston Temple and the piecing was awesome. 
This was at the top of my favorite list. I think it is incrediable

My daughter bought me this quilt kit from one of the vendors for my birthday and Christmas.
I am dying to make it. I guess it will just have to wait - I'll just drool over it til then.
One thing that was really cool was running into some people that follow my blog.
If any of you are reading this I really enjoyed meeting you and hope to see you again next year.

I will add some more pictures tomorrow
