Vermont Quilt Festival 2012 - Finale

Thank you Pat!  She sent me this beautiful pincushion (pattern from Primitive Quilts magazine) and local Wisconsin maple syrup.  What a sweet surprise!  The pincushion is so beautifully made and I love the fabric.  My son said it was the best syrup he has ever tasted; I agree.

Here is my last post from the Quilt Festival.  If you haven't had enough, my friends have posted photos too;  Sue, Lori, Regan.  My camera ran out of batteries, so they have some different photos.

On Friday evening we went to Montpellier for dinner and looks what I saw.  I church steeple with quilting motifs!

The capitol building and garden was beautiful in the evening light.  Here are me, Sue, Lori and Jill.

Lori and I were able to have a joint Jubilee 50th Birthday celebration.  It was wonderful.

I hope you are beating the heat and finding time to enjoy some sewing!
