QuiltCon 2016

Honestly, I was overwhelmed by the beauty of this show…definitely one of the best quilt shows I’ve ever been to! I volunteered at the California MQG membership booth all four days, enjoyed the show with Greg and our friend Nancy King on Saturday, and went back with Greg on Sunday…there was just so much to see and be inspired by. There were too many quilts to show them all, so here are just a few that really got my creativity flowing. And, did you notice that one of my quilts was there? I was honored to be included in such an incredibly talented group of quilters. Thank you to all the people at the MQG for everything they’ve done…it was truly outstanding. I can’t wait for the next show!

Something Fun


My friend Nancy King gave me this cute little bag she made. It’s perfect to keep my binding supplies in and each time I look at it makes me smile. I would much rather receive a gift that someone has made rather than one that has been purchased. It is so easy to get caught up with how fast-paced life can be. It is wonderful to slow down and enjoy some of simple beauty that is all around us. Nancy hand dyed the fabric used on the bags. The closure of the bag utilizes a metal piece from a tape measure. I love it!!!
