Kate is busy making herself a new pillowcase with some blocks she bought at the MQX vending show.
She has come such a long way in our sewing room....measuring and cutting her own fabric...plotting out the design...drawing the words to embroider...embroidering the letters....sewing all the seams. Focused....lost in her creation....It's such a treat to look over and see her concentrating on her work~
Kate has been coming here for a few years now.....she was a quilter from the start~
Deanne Fitzpatrick sent along a tote bag with the "birthday" frame that arrived at my doorstep~ It was calling out for my #6 perle cotton! Thanks Deanne!
Making it my own...

Best in show~machine quilting~lots of metallic thread, tiny tiny fill with lots of perfect circles!
I always gravitate toward the whimsical styles and colors~ the happy quilts!
My Kate and her horses.....she could spot them a mile away!
We found a booth with horse embroidered blocks to place in a quilt or pillow so Kate was busy choosing her favorite~
Happy quilt! One for E and Kate combined!
Melody is my favorite HANDS DOWN!! Take a peek at her work~
Another quilter who was demonstrating her approach to these unbelievable quilts.....I need to get her name... be right back...
AND my birthday present arrived from Nova Scotia~ My Cheticamp frame!! WHOOP! WHOOP!
