Wednesday Catch up!

I went to a Meet the Teacher event in Pleasant Hill, CA this week.

I was thrilled to see my long time friend Nancy! She used to come to the Sisters Outdoor Quilt show and we'd sew, laugh and have a grand time together with a group of ladies. We had a lot of fun times together so it was so lovely to give her a big hug!


Teachers sign up to present and we have 3 minutes to give a spiel to guilds and encourage them to hire you. 

A quilt of Guatemala. You know my heart is there!

I only have last year to compare but it was not well attended by teachers or guild board  members this year. 

They limit the teachers to 30 and only 16 were there!


This is Sarah Goer who was next to me. Improv seems to be what the CA quilters want. Her quilts were improv and very well constructed. She was very sweet. 


And, in other news:


 quick overnight backpacking trip...


Before heading to the city. 





Alcatraz Island was so interesting!


Hubby broke out and made it home with me!


Love ya'll! Have a wonderful weekend!

QuiltFest NW

I loved that this quilt the blocks were not all the same!

Made by a guild for their outgoing president. 









Feathered Star sampler! I LOVE it!


Another fun use of a historic quilt panel.



The center drew me right in!


Do you all have the darling hot pad/doilys? I thought this was very sweet. 







This quilt was made from blocks an ancestor had made


Reminds me of this one I just sold on Etsy!

It was really great to go to a quilt show!

Lets have an amazing week!

Quiltfest NW

I made plans to attend a quilt show in Clark Co Washington and woke to this!

It was a heavy wet snow and the roads were pretty clear so I stayed the course!

These ladies were so sweet and let me take a photo of their cute garments.

Another sister had made them but she couldn't join these other 2 sisters. 
Those skirts made from ties were adorable! 


The detail on the jackets were incredible!

My friend Laurie- GrottoGirl, is vending. 


Her booth is so fun! And fun to dig through! 






If you are near Portland or Vancouver I'd encourage you to go to the quilt show! I'll share quilt photos next week. 


And this was on my way home!  And then.....

A bad hail storm! Good grief spring- make up your mind! hahaha

Have a lovely weekend.
