Woodland CA quilt show and quilting done!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sunday we went to the Flying Needles Quilter's Guild Quilt Show. So now I've got some pictures to share with you.
Is this not the best Citrus Pinwheel you have ever seen? I took the picture to remember the border.

I know some of you applique nuts will like this one.

 Love postage stamp quilts... this one is really colorful.
 And I loved this one - partly pieced and partly appliqued.

 Since I'm working on Hexies... This one is an old Grandmother's Flower Garden.

The one above (and close up below) is quite unique. The middle top is a fabric panel of Yosemite National Park, and the surrounding postcards are real paper postcards! They are set into little triangular pockets just like photo corners. Thought you would like the innovation.

 Even my Hubby liked this one... I'm thinking that's the next new quilt for me to make.

 This picture reminded me of a special friend who is sewing on the Barn Along... Hi Sheila! Told you barns remind me of you.

Isn't this one pretty? Her son went along to the quilt store to help her pick out the blue... I'm impressed. I've always liked this pattern - Double Irish Chain, I think. It too is on my Quilty Bucket List.

And this one is similar... color placement!

Now here's what I bought... You will never guess what I paid. 6, count them... 6 fat quarters for $5...
And the lime green with yellow and pink flowers 2 yards = $6 total... Yes, you heard me correctly. I got 2 pieces for $3 per yard.  The other is blue with white dots - 4 yards that I used as the backing for the Jazzy Snowballs. See the next picture.

It's already quilted. I used the same orange quilting thread on it as the other H2H quilt. The wavy lines give the snowballs a little puffiness. See below.

So now I'm on to do the binding.
Thanks for stopping by, and thank you for the comments... especially the lovely ones that I haven't answered.  I really appreciate your kindness.


  1. Most excellent barn block! haha Nice horse : )
    Oh my. I enjoy quilt shows. You got some good pictures and scored some bargains.
    Love how you quilted your snowball quilt. The wavy lines were perfect. Good choice.

  2. Dang it (!lol) Terri, I AM gonna hafta make me a snowball quilt. I just LOVE it. And my list goes on and on....Julierose

  3. Wonderful quilts! I especially liked the Irish chain with the blue; it certainly has the WOW factor. Irish Chain is on my bucket list also. I lived in Woodland for ten years and was hoping I could go to their show. It turned out to be the same weekend as our guild's quilt show. Darn! We could have met up!

  4. Thanks for sharing the quilt show- I really appreciate the inspiration. Brilliant bargains! I wish I found fabric at those prices. I skip when I see FQs for £2. I did pop in the Portsmouth shop at the weekend. Will share. Lovely quilting on the snowballs. You are making really good progress.

  5. Pretty quilts. Thanks for the quilt show pictures. Looking forward to seeing the completed snowball quilt.

  6. Wow..tons of eye candy at the quilt show. The grandmothers flower garden made my heart melt ...lovely! And the scrappy quilt is wonderful too.

    You're a total powerhouse of mojo. Cant believe you have your quilt to the binding stage already!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love the feedback, and getting to know you.
