Last week I went to the Willamette Valley Quilting Festival in Albany, Oregon. I didn't take very many pictures because my phone battery was very low. My friend and I had a very good time!
This first quilt won the best of show award and is super beautiful!!
This next quilt is the just like the quilt that my Mom made for me as a wedding gift! I was so surprised to see it. My Mom loved to embroider and do cross stitching. I picked out the pattern and she did all the cross stitching. She had the ladies of Eastern Star hand quilt it. It will be 58 years old in August and has survived a lot of wear and tear.
This quilt was made with all Australian fabric.
This was a simple wall hanging and I loved the fabric and quilting design on it.

I just loved this zebra quilt! Very striking!

I had to take a picture of this quilt. I hope you can read the various element descriptions. Very creative!
I love this quilt.
And last, but not least, here is how my "barn" quilt is coming. I am almost finished with the top! I had planned to use a border fabric, but realized that I don't have enough of it, so I'm adding a scrappy row of fabric and then a wider border of the brown background fabric.
On Tuesday I had a gum transplant (called free gingival graft) in a section of my mouth and it is so painful because the dentist took a part of the roof of my mouth to sew onto the area where my gum was not growing back after the oral surgery I had. This has been more painful than the actual surgery that I had before because the roof of the mouth is very sensitive and doesn't heal very fast. It seems to hurt more now than it did a few days ago. I can hardly eat anything so I'm mostly eating jello, milk toast, macaroni and cheese and small pieces of chicken. I'm not starving, but it is frustrating. Trying to keep the food on one side of the mouth isn't easy.
