First Friday at Quiltworks

Despite a crazy, busy week I made it to Bend for First Friday at Quiltworks. It helps I was meeting friends for quilts and food afterwards. (Good company, always!)

The featured quilter was Linda Saukkonen. She shared quite a few quilts she had started in classes.

What a super way to use up scraps!!

The group quilts were by The Nimble Needlers.

Great map quilt exploring the routes of the Underground Railroad.

Adorable Little Bunny Foo-Foo!

My favorite quilt hanging at Quiltworks this month. It isn't my style but so darned adorable.
The details were amazing!!

I hope you enjoyed a little of the show. If you are in Bend, Oregon this month, please stop by and see them in person.

If you have not seen the doll sized quilts from the swap there are 48 wonderful quilts to to enjoy! If you do not have a blog and participated in the swap and do not see the quilt you made or received please let me know so I can post it.
