Got Plans?

Hey! Watchya doin' today? Got anything fun planned? If you don't, I've got an option for you. There's a quilt show out here at the Fairgrounds (here's a link to a Google Map) today.

I have 4 quilts displayed in it. One is the quilt that we made at the
baby shower in September. Remember that? Another is a quilt I made that LightGirl usually has on her bed. Another is an antique quilt that goes in my guest room. The fourth is another baby quilt I made with a friend. Then there are about 200 other quilts there. AND ... you get to meet some of my favorite people. My quilting buddies and see some of their artistry too. I'll be working at various booths til 3 so you can see me there til then. Or if you come in the mid-afternoon I can walk around too. But I'll be really into the quilts and will probably go slower than you might want to.

Here's a picture of one of my quilts that I couldn't bear to part with long enough to have it in the show. It's called "Cakestands for Charlotte Evelyn." The quiltblock pattern is called "cakestands". Charlotte Evelyn is a compilation of both of my grandmothers' names, because the fabrics remind me of one grandmother and it was pieced on my other grandmother's old Singer Featherweight 221 (which is a highly prized machine among quilters). I finished this quilt with enough time to start sleeping under it before it was time to put it in the show and then ... I fell off the cliff in the Mines of Moria. And I needed my grandmothers with me at night. So ... it stayed home and became "my blankie." It can go in next year.

Beautiful quilt! Pieced on your grandmother's Featherweight - that's fabulous! :)
