New small project

I've been pretty quiet the past few months. I've been working on projects to be submitted to magazines and can't show them yet. The magazine projects are finished, and I now have time to play.

One of the projects that caught my eye at quilt market was a cute snowman project from Primitive Gatherings. I chose the mini version which finishes 30" x 34". Sew Graceful Quilting will have kits for the project if you want to make one just like mine.

Here's the first four blocks -- quick and easy.




Back to playing!

I survived!

Oh my goodness! I'd heard stories but nothing prepared me for Quilt Festival in Houston! I've never seen so many ladies (mostly) in one place with one mission: to enjoy quilts. Over 1000 vendor booths and dozens of beautiful quilts on display.

I helped Lynette Anderson in her booth. Here's the booth when I arrived for set up on Weds. We couldn't dawdle because preview night opened at 5:00 p.m.

We were ready in plenty of time. Even had time to run out for a quick bite.

Here's why I didn't get to visit the other booths very often.

I'm home and enjoying my own bed. :-)
