I was getting out some fall quilts and I found this one that I made for the 1999 at Gwen Marston's Quilt Retreat.
The theme was string quilts.
Each of the five years I went I made a signature quilt and name tag to match the theme. The name of retreaters are on the muslin strings.
I hand quilted it with a honey comb pattern.
Here maybe you can see the quilting on the back-
and my name tag -
Hooray! Tomorrow is my bus trip to the Pennsylvania Quilt Extravaganza. If you see me, say hello, I love meeting readers and other bloggers.
If you see me, you can buy a ticket for this quilt for $1.00.
I have prepared a simple photo purse to help me shop.
I don't know where I first saw this, but I think it's brilliant!
Fabrics I need to match

And lastly, my machine is safely home. Not repaired, not cleaned but after 8 weeks; home. The small shop is dealing with a serious illness and I wish them well.
Thank you, Jill, for lending me your machine and to my other quilt friends for offering their machines. You are the best!
See you next week with quilt show photos.
Have a fun weekend!
