Today we are going to the Folsom Quilt & Fiber Guild Annual Show - Tides of Time. Fasten your seat belts!
First up, Thinking Outside the Box by Marti Meadows - red boxes with black interiors, except the one white interior. (The blue is from a quilt behind.) Look closer... the binding!!!! The outer perimeter is not a square or oblong shape. It goes in and out all along the outside. I was in awe of all the work, just on the binding.
Next is a pretty log cabin called 4-Patch Logs by Dawn Licker. I love quilts that have that light and shadow thing going on.
I do admire the applique artists. I wish I could do it. This one (shown only partly) is Applique' Affair by Sheila Bayley. I love that there are different colors of the beige background, and the stylized flowers are so colorful. (It was a BOM from Stitchin Heaven - Pattern by Edyta Sitar.)
Next is Lucky Stars by Lyn Baker
One of my favorites in the show is this one entered into the show by the Folsom History Museum. Nothing shows the name of the maker.... (Reminds us all to add our labels to the back.) It's made with 1.5 pieces that finish at 1". I'm thinking it is made with 30's fabrics.
When I got home I found 2 potholders, fabric and candy in the mail from my Good Blogger Buddy, Sheila at Sew Cook and Travel. Look at the pot holders. One side is different from the other. How fun, and I love the colors. I needed some color in that kitchen. Thank You Sheila!!!!
That's not wrapping paper there... the purple is a fat quarter!!!! Thank you so much.
Then to top off a great day, my Baby Sister called. We talked for nearly 2 hours!!!! Thanks B! Always good to hear from you!
So we'll share the rest of our quilt show tomorrow.
