Lotsa Pictures Today!

Hello Dear Friends,
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.

This one is just plain fun! Snow Day by Nancy Balthasar.

I love butterflies, and this is Bali Butterfly by Donna Ireland.

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.)
 Butterflies again... told ya I love 'em. This is Cottage Garden Butterflies by Kristine Olding. (Think I should make a butterfly quilt one of these days.)

 Next is Lucky Stars by Lyn Baker
 An Atkinson Design using batiks - as you can see I really liked it... below is a close up.

 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.

 Here's a close up.
 We'll continue the show tomorrow...

                                                             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.
