Geek Squad helped some...

Hello again Friends!

Lets give this thing another chance.  We went to the computer store, and the Geeks tried to fix it, I thought they were heroes, but in the long run they didn't help much.  F10 is supposed to turn off that VERY sensitive patch on my lap top so I can actually type, but it doesn't work. I was able to get my printer as the default today.  It's like wandering around in a foreign country in the dark.

Anyway, lets get back to some quilt show pictures from Friday.

This is a detail of the quilt above.  I love the applique roses, don't you?

Apparently I was not the only one that liked this little wonky house quilt.
I liked this one, too.
You wouldn't believe how narrow those strips are.  I would say they weren't much more than one quarter inch wide.  It's gotta be paper pieced.
I didn't know what to make of this one.  Just love it.

There were lots of bird house quilts... see the other one off to the left. I'd say there were at least 6 all shown in near proximity. I love the cat on this one.

This one is only the 4 panels... most unusual. The colors on the extreme right are part of  the next quilt.
This is the quilt that convinced us that the lighting needed to be improved.  Without the flash you can hardly see the windmills. We were amazed.

I want to make a pointy circular quilt like this some day.... bucket list of a quilter! Mine will have more color, for sure, but even though I don't care much for brown, I do love this quilt.

And here is what I won as a door prize.  3 one yard pieces.  Aren't they pretty?  Copper Mountain Quilting in Nevada. If you know the store, stop by and say "hi" for me.

I bought these 3 fat quarters for $1 each at another vendor.
And I went back to get this yard at the generous lady's spot. It just called to me, and will fit well as background for the Harry Potter paper piece blocks.  Looks magical to me.
I made a Goblet of Fire today.... Show it to you next time.
