This is a selfie I took to post on facebook when I got to the show.

Not every one got to see that. Her quilt is titled "Reflections of Cape Town" She said it took about a year to make and had about 8400 individual pattern pieces. WOW. It's hand appliqued and machine quilted. It's her original design from a photo she took.
So all the beautiful quilts are in my head and I can't share the quilt with 80,000 tiny pieces or the one with all the 3D fish that I thought interesting, or all the beautiful textures and colors. Whayyyyy. I can't even share my picture of Jenny Doan from Missouri Star that I got to meet and talk to. She was so nice and we had a good laugh over me not realizing she was only 30 miles down the road from my hometown. And it took my brother-in-law to point it out to me when I was home in Missouri visiting. And did y'all realize Jenny is 6 foot tall? She has all her furniture built taller. LOL. So she said when her short friends like Susan Daly (who was sitting next to her doing paper piecing in the Riley Blake Booth) their feet don't touch the floor and they laughed.
I also got to meet Rob who is on her show often and I took a selfie with him. He's very fun and personable just like on TV.
I guess I should have taken a selfie with Jenny then I would have still had her picture. At least I still have Rob's. If you click on his name it will take you to his Holiday napkin tutorial.

So much to see and do at the quilt show. I saw lots of people and so many beautiful quilts and lots of vendors with spiffy gadgets and do-dads to make a quilters easier and fun. Right? I bought a ruler to make snowball blocks that I think was easier than the accuquilt die cut because I didn't have to deal with the 2 1/2 half inch square triangles. There was all kinds of things just waiting to take my money...but not all if it.. LOL
By the time I got home it was after 7pm and I had to feed my pup, load my car, feed me, gas up my car and head to College Station. The next day was to be the 2nd Round Robin Hand Off. I can't show pictures of that until we're all done and that will be about a year away but I can say that everyone in the group did an awesome job getting that first border on everyone's medallion.
What I can show you is the quilt that Denise just finished for her
Mother who retired a few years back. It turned out just awesome. As you can see by the smile her Mother, Delores was thrilled.
Denise did a great job. She had a few blocks left over and added them to the back which worked out great.
And then David sent us these pictures from the farm.
The rain was just pouring off the Mini Mansion and
you could hardly see across the property. Awesome now it starts raining. Now when David is going to have to start pumping out the pond to have it dug out and cleaned up. Figures.
This is one of those posts of a Little of this and a Little of That. The gal that does my
hair is very talented. Not only does she do hair but she can do awesome Halloween makeup. She loves Halloween.
Well that's it for now unless I find a way to recover my quilt show pictures which I haven't yet.
Oh I almost forgot... the winner of my orphan snowball blocks is fellow blogger Karen of KAHolly. I'll be emailing her shortly for an address so I can mail her the blocks. Thanks everyone for participating via blog comments or email. Keep watching I'll have another one.
Until next blog...Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
