I really didn't intend yesterday's post to end up being a tease about photos, but that is the way it ended up. My photo to the left here just disappeared by the time I was ready to write about it, so here it is now! This is my Mother and I showing off the totes I made. I talked about the tote I was making for me but didn't post a photo of it because I didn't want to spoil the surprise when she received her gift. Since I won't see my Mother on Mother's Day I gave her the present early. She likes pastels where I like the darker reproduction types of fabrics. As I made hers I added a little button flap on her bag. I didn't like the way my bag gaped open as I used it so I thought this might help. I will probably add one to mine as soon as I come up with a nice looking way to add it now that the bag has been completed. I think I know how I will do it, now to get it done! The Spring wall hanging behind her was part of a Christmas present I gave her two years ago. I gave her four wall hangings for the different seasons. Seeing her wallhanging on the door reminded me that I don't have mine up. Wait a minute - I might not even have mine finished! Ugh! I had better check!
Here are a few photos from the AQS Quilt Show this year. The first is Diane Gaudynski's quilt that won Bernina's Machine Quilting award. I wasn't able to get a better photo of the whole quilt. There were too many other admirers around to maneuver to a better angle. I have also included a close up look at her fabulous quilting. I love her style of machine quilting and have been fortunate enough to be able to take a couple of classes with her. She is a wonderful teacher and I so enjoyed her classes.
This photo is of the Hand Workmanship award winner. Yikes! What a beauty! The Feathered Star is on my list of quilts I want to make. This was a must have photo for me. What an inspiration! I have a couple more photos that I wanted to share, but blogger won't let me download any more photos right now! Honest! Yesterday my photo disappeared, and now it says I don't have a Internet connection. Weird. So, guess I have left you with another unintended teaser. Sorry! I will try to post the other photos soon!
