Spring feels really good...

     Spring is feeling really good! We've had weather up into the upper 80's and it has cooled slightly today  but, still wonderful. Dry so, it isn't stifling hot. 
     I think the busy pace of the past month has slowed for a while. Six ribbons for the Carolina Longarm group have been either awarded or delivered so, that's done for a few months. They are time consuming but, I enjoy making them.

     Thursday, my friend Neva and I went to Clemmons, NC to the Forsyth Piecers and Quilters Quilt show and judged for the ribbon to be presented to the best longarmed quilt at the show. We only had to choose one quilt but, there were so many lovely, lovely quilts. fortunately for us we only had the quilting itself to judge. Theresa DeWalt won the ribbon. She is an outstanding quilter (13 years) in the Winston-Salem area. Oh, to get to that point one day! I can only hope it's sooner than later. Below is a picture of the quilt she quilted (only one of several she did, that were in the show.)

    Sorry, the picture truly doesn't do this quilt justice. Mary at Quilt Hollow has a better picture. The close-ups are a little better. New camera and I haven't got it quite figured out.

Absolutely delightful!

     Friday, Mary and I attended the quilt show and had a chance to take the pictures of several of the quilts and visit the vendors. They must have had almost 20 vendors and guild boutique. I found some scrumptious batiks and Mary gave me my birthday present a little early; a 'Jelly Roll' of neutral batiks to go with them. I'm going to use them in a 'Desert Nine Patch' quilt.

    I have several other batiks (too many to get in the photo) that I've been collecting for an 'Indian Summer' quilt so, will combine many of them with these for both quilts.
I just love fabric!!!
  Never got the chance to share a picture of my entry table dressed up for spring. Here it is! (at least part of it) Then I must go, it's getting late and I'm pooped! Hope you all have a wonderful week!
