Well, I thought I had written about the upcoming Boise Basin Quilter’s quilt show…and, now that the event has come and gone this past weekend, I guess I can write a little something!
Not only was the show fun, I bought a ticket to hear the lecture by Marianne Fons, from Fons and Porter’s Love of Quilting. She was quite entertaining and I even got to get a picture taken with her beforehand. I didn’t bring my own camera, as I didn’t realize there was going to be a Meet ‘n Greet, so someone else took the picture for me. I’ll have to post it when I get it.
I had two quilts in the show and got some solid (+) Good ratings. All constructive criticisms were in line with my own perceptions and expectations, which I think is a good thing because then I know I’m on the same track as the judges. I am also very happy to be able to finally post a picture of the Happy Quilt! Once I get a closeup of the quilting, I'll post a picture of that, too, as it turned out quite well and you can't see the variegated thread or the design in this photo.
Now that the show is over I can concentrate on the lone star customer quilt that is still on the frame. Almost done, but the free motion design in the star part is giving me a hard time, I can’t seem to get it right….and she wants it back! Can’t say I blame her, I’ve had it quite awhile.
Not all has been procrastination, though. My DH tore his rotator cuff in his left shoulder last week, I re-tweaked my back a bit over the weekend, and the dog went in for a cyst removal and major dental surgery. So, it was a rough week.
Then the dog had to wake me up this morning at 2AM and I couldn’t get back to sleep. So, I’ve been up since 2:30AM…and I’m going to bed now.
