Multifarious Wednesday

I'm still all over the board trying to get my sewing room back in order!

Multifarious:
many and of various types.
"multifarious activities"

Yep great description. 

Short video of the craziness in my sewing room!




Wrong season, but I bought this from Michelle! I need to finish it, but it is so cute and well done!

My new friend, Marsha, bought a pack of fabrics but didn't like this beauty! I was the lucky recipient. Thank you Marsha!

I've been making a little quilt in the Cheri Payne group. I finally finished it and gave it a little coffee bath. 


Robin is expecting it, but I'm not ready to show it until it arrives at her home.

I know many of you have read my posts about my friend from Guatemala who works with kids in the garbage dumps. Getting them an education is key to a better life. She was in Central Oregon and I was thrilled to see her and give her big hugs!

My niece is going to Netherlands for work! Yes, it may be a possibility to visit her. We will wait and see how her schedule and life is. I've never been so it may be fun!

That's my life for now, friends!
Love ya and Welcome February!

Quilt Show and More

Wow! What a weekend! Starting Wednesday I drove to Salem where Michelle and I set up a booth to vendor for the quilt show. Thursday, Friday and Saturday were busy and fun.
Here's a few of the quilts I enjoyed seeing.

Love the window views!

Apparently this was sold as a large cheater quilt. The maker used the "cheater" part for the star and vine border. 

But look at the stitching on these! Beautiful!


This was beautiful!

I witnessed my first in person Quilt of Valor award! They did several of them over the course of 3 days. It was so touching. I feel so fortunate to see this. I signed up my nephew to receive a QOV quilt!

I posted photos and a live video of our booth on the facebook group. You can join HERE if you'd like. 

My online friend  told her sister to stop by and be sure to say HI and she did! That was so sweet! 
Hi Roxanne!
I drove through a snowstorm to get home and arrived to low temps! Here is Elsa finding a sunny spot on the only place that doesn't have snow! Smart dog!!


If you are wondering, I do not plan on being a vendor again at a quilt show! Lots of work, too little pay!!

Uptown BOM

Here's my January Uptown blocks.

I'm pretty happy with how they are turning out.

I'm vending at the Oregon Quilt Festival in Salem today! I hope if you are anywhere nearby you'll come and say hi!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Antique Quilt Found in Virginia

As I was prepping to vend at the Oregon Quilt Festival in Salem, I realized I never took ANY photos of this amazing quilt! So I spread it out in my kitchen and snapped these before packing it up to take to the show.  It measures about 80"x80" and has this giant red border! 




It has some simple cable quilting and squares. (filler because the cable wasn't wide enough?)

It has some lovely madder prints and mourning purples,

It has some issues- mostly the browns. 

The green/blue print has been exposed to sun or bleach so it's a little mottled. I couldn't find too much information on the print used for the setting squares. It has a fun floral sprig quilting motif in the squares. 

That center blue is delightful! (see the damaged fabric on the right)

Someone had some access since the entire backing is this lovely print!

This quilt is charming as ever! I'm selling it so let me know if you are interested. ($200plus shipping) 

I'm excited for the rest of this week! I know I'll enjoy the quilts, but I hope I sell some quilt stuff too!

Love ya!
