Happy Birthday To Me
Sunday was my birthday. It started off with a booming thunderstorm around 5:30 am. What a welcome sound!
My family wanted to do something for my birthday - even tho staying home would have been just fine. So, I decided they could take me to the Fort Worth quilt show. I've never been. So, we headed off in the rain. The show was small (in comparison to the Dallas show) but there were some great quilts. It sure was nice to attend a show as a tourist and not as a vendor! I took quite a few pictures and will share them over the next few days.
This was the best of show quilt. It was hand appliqued and is a true charm quilt. Every piece of green and red is different!
And - it was quilted within an inch of its life.....yes, ALL of the background was stipple quilted....by HAND.
This quilt was a lovely study in reproduction fabrics and blocks. Each block measures 6".
I liked this one because of the Kaffe Fassett fabrics and the simplicity of the piecing. I just wish the camera had captured it better.
That's it for now - more photos later!
