First Friday, Second Friday!

Today is the second Friday but I'm sharing Quiltwork's First Friday exhibit! It is always good, but this month I really enjoyed it! (must be because I missed a month)
 Tina Witherell made these adorable wee quilts.
 1/4" half square triangles!








The group exhibit was
Quilter's Sew-ciety of Redding, "Feather Our Nest With Quilts".  So creative and fun!







Here's my Instagram feed for this week. Tuesday night my daughter came to town and we all went to Bend for Jackson Browne! He was so good! Trying to amp up my running a bit to get ready for a half marathon at the end of September.

We are sharing our watermelon blocks from the Front Porch quilt of Jan Patek on Monday! Next month's blocks to be revealed then too.

Have a lovely weekend.

  3. The traditional style mini quilts are so very well done. Her tip to over size cut the pieces is a good one and also the size of the needle.
    The bird theme quilts are very interesting. The one with a bird on a branch with sky background is my favorite.

  13. Oh, this is the best show ever! I love these mini's. Although I don't see how 1/4" half square triangles can be considered to be "fun". I'm inspired to try though! Thanks!

  16. I love those two dressed crows and imagine the conversation they are having...I can't believe she dressed us like this! But I'm the better looking one in the outfit!

    Those Minis are insane! 1/4" half sqare triangles! I'm surprised and amazed she carried on, they really make the piece.

    Thanks for the wonderful close up pictures.
