Last Call

Happy Friday

The berry was re-made, the leaves attached and peace was restored through the land.  This is a block for the Brownstone guild's raffle quilt which I am chairing.  My friends and I have made up 42 applique' block kits and 63 pieced blocks kits.  I'll share more with you when I can.

Here are the last of the show photos.  Let me apologize in advance for the quality of some of them.  When I'm at a show I carry my smaller camera, and it's just not as good.

This was "metamorphosis" and I loved the way the geisha dissolved into the background.

An unusual log cabin setting (blurry).

This one is for Pauline :)

Lovely reproduction fabrics and incredible workmanship.

Love this

I was intrigued by this one.  It was made by someone from Japan, who obviously loves our American pop culture.

Here is another view.

A lovely version of this pattern.  The plaid background is great.

I'm off for a 2 day retreat up the Hudson with a few friends.  I'm planning on working on an old project, a new project and an ongoing project. 

Happy sewing this weekend.


  1. Beautiful pictures! That geisha one is spectacular! And I love the sunburst quilting pattern on the log cabin quilt...I did that on one of my daughter's baby quilts YEARS ago and thought that I invented it. HA! Silly me!

    I was a quick lurker on your last post and didn't have time to leave a comment, but I have to tell you that I laughed and laughed about Cocoa eating the cherry off your beautiful applique block. My cat Weasley has some bad habits around my quilting stuff...BAD kitty!

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)

  2. Have a wonderful time at retreat. I loved seeing the quilt show photos, thanks for sharing them. I do like the cheery block, I always wanted to do a border of cheery sprigs.

  3. have a great weekend and it was fun seeing which quilts you took pictures of from the show!

  4. there you go showing another way to use dots - I love that border!

  5. Ooooh! I like the New York Beauty one (isn't the applique cool!?!) and the Dear-Jane-like Triangles one -- that is an awesome border treatment!! Looks like it really was a spectacular show, Barb!!
    Glad to see the NEW cherry! LOL (Don't want to think about what the lost cherry looks like! :-D) I've got a raffle-quilt in my near future, too. They are challenging to put together, but fun. Enjoy your retreat!
