Well last week-end March 22nd & 23rd's quilt show was a sucess for me and my daughter, as vendors at The Best little Quilt Show in Maryland.  We voted on our favorite quilt as vendor's, and enjoyed the many ladies who stopped by our booth, and talked, and enjoyed our products.

Ready for the fun filled weekend ahead.
I entered a couple of quilts in the show since I am also a member of The Southern Comforters Quilt Guild of Bowie.  I didn't win any ribbons, (didn't enter them expecting to win) but did get a lot of wonderful comments, and positive feed back which I greatly appreciated all the nice comments on the two quilts that I entered.  

Old Tobacco Road
Old Tobacco Road is a Bonnie Hunter mystery from 2008 I love the way it looks hanging in the show.  Giving this one to my handsome son, and I'm waiting for an appraisal from Phyllis Hatcher to come in the mail.  

Kindergarten Art
This is a small quilt that I really just wanted to finish.  Its reverse Applique, and one that has been in my UFO pile for a long time.  It's good to have it finished.

Now today I have been getting myself together for a quilting retreat this coming weekend with some very talented ladies.  Four days of quilting, laughing, and fun.  

Until later, Happy Piecing,

And not to be totally outshone, I also received my Game Day Minky Challenge fabric bundle.  

4 Yards of cuddle minky fabric's need to be turned into a quilt?

So just wanted to send a public "Thank you" to Dana, for my little surprise.  Now I'm off to the basement to get my Trunk show together for The Best little Quilt Show in Maryland set up today.  Thank you for stopping by, hope to see you at the Quilt Show.

Well, well my first finish of 2014!  I have finished small quilts for my "My Lazy Daisy" trunk show, but this is my first larger quilt finishing in the year 2014.  Mary Kay Kerr did the quilting on this 68inch X 60inch quilt. This quilt is heading down to Ft. Hood Texas, and a soon to be returning solider.
Finished Solider Quilt 68 X 60

I ran out of the navy blue polka dot fabric for the binding, so thought that the red polka dot would work, and I must say I love the red polka dot binding! The left corner has the red polka dot, the rest is the navy blue polka dot.

Mary Kay did a great job quilting this.  Now I'm off to work on my quilt show quilts.  Two and a half weeks until the show.  I've got one small and one large quilt going in the show.  The small quilt is almost finished.   The large quilt is still at the quilter, it's do able no worries.  She said it should be ready tomorrow, but the DC Metro area is waiting for another snow/ice storm, so more than likely won't get it until Tuesday.    Never mind, got a text from my "quilter" at 5pm this evening, and she has my finished quilt in her car, doing some running around then stopping by here to drop it off before the snow storm tomorrow!  Yippe! More binding and a little sleeve sewing for me.

Old Tobacco Road (Bonnie Hunter Mystery 2008)
This is not so wide, almost 80inches, but it is long 101inches.  Think this might be my new retreat quilt. You can find the free pattern here under Mystery quilts on the left sidebar.  

I am totally ready for warmer spring weather, enough snow already, but if it's going to snow, at least I have something to work on.  

Happy piecing,
