Folsom Quilt Show, Puddles and Found Rainbow Blocks

I went Saturday last to see the Folsom Quilt and Fiber Guild Show... took some pictures of the entries that impressed me...Like these:

I'm always impressed by the applique. Sew pretty, sew difficult.

This picture and the one below are for Melanie, and those of you who embroider on your quilts. I liked the simplicity of the whole quilt.

Imagine making all those Yoyo pieces! Colors look like the 30s. Huge "quilt".

I liked this for a QoV. Sometimes it's the idea I like.
 This one (above and below) was really different. Even looking closely, I couldn't tell if the red doodles were quilting or just "written" on there.

 These two are on my quilt bucket list.
Isn't the border treatment interesting?
And a fish. I have a book with the directions, just never tried it yet.
(Too many quilts, not enough time.)
 Here is Johnson Lake - puddles in our front yard. It didn't rain that much, but the ground was dry, and it takes a while for it to absorb. This was the first time (in 14 years that we have lived here) we had puddles this big on the lawn.


 Look what I found while digging in my fabric boxes to find the 9.5" rotary cutter ruler. (Still haven't found it.)  Blocks made several years ago during the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I've got some other blocks started, too, so I think this one might work for an H2H quilt donation...
 It's coming soon. Sarah is getting ready.
That's all for now!
See you in the funny papers.
