A Quilty Weekend

I was fortunate to attend, not just one, but two quilt shows over the weekend!  The Blue Valley Quilter's Guild, held their bi-annual quilt show in a beautiful Civic Center on Friday and Saturday.
The show coordinaters wanted "lots of quilts" so, I entered 12 quilts, most of them medium size. You might spot a few in these photos...
The guild is selling tickets for a chance to win this beauty and I am really hoping that my number will be drawn!  My friend, Trish, designed it, put most of it together herself and even quilted it! Isn't it gorgeous?
It was fun to meet up with Linda, [Flourishing Palms] who was in town visiting her daughter, at the show and spend some time with her. We hope to have coffee one more time before she heads back to Florida. 
A highlight of the show for me, was getting to shop at Marmalade Fabrics, who had a booth at the show. If you haven't discovered Tammy's on-line shop yet, be sure to visit soon.
Of course, I couldn't leave without picking out some fun modern fabrics! These two Mod-Century fabrics by Moda are perfect for a little project I'm working on for the Modern Designs for Classic Quilts Blog Tour, which starts today. Be sure to click on the link above to find out how to win a copy of this wonderful new book. I'll be giving away a copy during a special post on Monday, November 19, so be sure to check in that day! You can see a hint of the book under my fabric in the picture below.
I was so excited to get a message from Amy that my QR Code quilt has been nominated for the Two-Color Quilt category in the Blogger's Quilt Festival. I'd love your vote! Hop over and see all of the gorgeous entries.
If you follow college football at all, then you know that Kansas State University won again yesterday and is #2 right now. Having two children, daughter-in-law, and a son-in-law that graduated from K-State, we are following the team closely. Lula and Jane are such big fans that they were even K-State cheerleaders for halloween!
Go Wildcats!


  1. Congratulations on your nomination.

    Your grand-daughters look so cute!

  2. Wonderful quilt show! Voted for you and all my blogging friends! Good luck!

  3. Congrats on your nomination. Looks like you had a great time at the show, too. I love Tammy. I would have LOVED to have seen her booth. She is so dear!

  4. Aren't those quilts delicious! I voted for you today ; )

  5. Thanks for the "free ticket" to the quilt show! :-)

    Congrats on the nom and on having incredibly adorable grandbabies!

  6. The quilt show looks fab! Congrats on the nomination, I voted for you ;)

  7. Aw - my two bee girls! Love seeing your picture together. I got to meet Amy Lobsiger at Quilt Market and we both agree that we miss our bee. And I'm going to vote for you right now!

  8. I sure wish I could have been there with you and Linda...I'm so excited your quilt was nominated--I voted for it (and the genius photography!). Go Wildcats indeed. Well, if you live in Kansas it is essential to choose one, right! When we lived in western Kansas, people had big signs outside their house declaring their allegiance. Our best friends were in a bit of a bind, because they had a daughter going to K State and a daughter in KU. bummer.
