Quilt Show Ramblings

I went to the Seaport Quilters show in Clarkston Sunday. Nothing really grabbed me there, although I took a few pictures of some of the fun challenge pieces they had. I had entered some quilts in the show and did receive a 3rd place viewers choice ribbon for a group quilt block robin. I was thrilled with that! I only purchased some spray baste spray by Pam Clarke of Spokane http://www.homestitches.com/supplies.html . It is wonderful stuff, my can is almost gone and her invisible machine applique is awesome.

The only other thing I purchased was a pieced of 30's reproduction for a round robin. I just needed a final border fabric so I could get it mailed off yesterday. The center was an actual 30's dresden plate block and my border was to put it on point. I did that while making half dresdens out of reproductions to fill in.

I have gotten out my daughter's graduation quilt to work on again. I figured since graduation is May 27th, I should get it done! I hope I get it done sooner than my other daughter's last year. I finished the binding about 15 minutes before we left for graduation! I have 27 of the 63 blocks for Lisa's quilt made.
