Weekend Update

On Friday I attended the local QU quilt show with my 23 yo DD, and she was sweet enough to take some pictures of me with my quilts that were hanging in the show.  This is my friend Karen, with one of her quilts.  Isn't it fantastic?  All the little points on those feathered stars are actually 3-dimensional prairie points!
 Her style is so different from mine; I love the scrappy, old-fashioned, civil war type prints, and Karen is all florals.  Here is a picture of the quilt that she designed, and that I pieced.  It is called "Star Flower".  It is very, very different from my usual colors, but I had a blast working on something so different from my "norm". 

It was so hot outside this weekend, that other than a few yard sales on Saturday morning and some weeding after that, I stayed indoors!  I was lucky enough to have lots of quality sewing time this weekend, and I have finished my Orange Crush Mystery Quilt, and it is huge!  I popped it onto my queen size bed to see how it fit, and I have fallen in love with this quilt in our bedroom...what do you think? The colors in my quilt are very muted, and as I was making it I didn't realize that it would be such a good match for my bedroom.  So....I believe this one will be a "keeper"!
