Here's my second month of Willowberry Designs . I have the next one ready to start stitching.
Here's the second block in the "A tisket, a tasket" BOM from Bunny Hill Designs . At least I can say I'm learning some things about applique! I bought a couple bias tape makers at the quilt show. (See picture below).
LOOT: some reproduction fat quarters,
A panel of flags,
wool, 2 yards of white on white and 1 yard of red with little airplanes, more FQs, an apron pattern and the bias tape makers.
I had to hold myself back or I could have spent lots more money! Hee Hee!!

I went to the Dallas Quilt Show today and took some pictures. These are some of the quilts I liked best. I like traditional patchwork best, which you can probably tell from my selections.

This quilt is by Theri, who blogs on . The way the colors are used makes it look like it's glowing!
This one looks three dimensional.

I love reproductions too!

It was a fun day and I spent quite a bit of time happily vising vendors & spending money! Now, I need to rest!

I started sewing the quilt top together yesterday and I couldn't stop until I had it all together! Woo Hoo!! Tonight I will take it to my quilters guild meeting for show & tell!

Here's the first stitchery from Willowberry Designs .  I'm almost finished with the second one.  These are really sweet and fun to do!
Happy Stitching, everyone!

I got two more blocks finished! And I'm in a sewing mood, so I'm going to get at least one more ready tonight.

I'm looking forward to going to the Dallas Quilt Show next Saturday. Can't wait! Wish you could come with me!

Here is block one of the Polka Dot Girls quilt.    Let's see if I can get the top put together by the 15th of March!

I am still working on hand piecing my tumbler quilt and added 2 more to each row. I am going to stitch about 3 or 4 more rows and then will start joining the rows together. This is not my top priority project right now.Before we leave on a 2 week vacation to Oregon to visit DS#1 & family, I want to get my Polka Dot Girls quilt top put together. I have all the sticheries finished and the hearts machine appliqued. I'm thinking about entering it in a quilt show this summer, but haven't decided yet. I don't think work is perfect enough to enter in a show.
I found this piece of fabric at a garage sale and it brought back sweet memories. I feel pretty sure it is the same fabric that my Mom made kitchen curtains out of for the house we moved into when I was 5 years old. My sister remembers it too, but she thinks it might have been a dish towel. (My sister now lives in the house. My Dad, grandpa and uncles built the house in 1948).
I can't remember what the kitchen counters were like now. That was a long time ago!
