I'm in the paper!!

Just had to share. Check out this article in the local newspaper.. Whoo-hoo...


They did an article on all my quilt displays that have I hanging in my library.
I don't know why, but it looks like you have to copy and paste the web address. Grrr...

quilt show

Well, started off with going to the San Diego Quilt Show. small but nice. I'm used to Long Beach or Road. Wanted to spend money, but only 1 vendor was lucky. The Quilted Rose. Started talking and then we ended up driving to her store in downtown. Bought 2 pantographs and thread. The Quilted Rose was next door to Rosie's, so we had to stop in and see if there was anything I just couldn't live without. Couldn't find anything, well yes there was stuff, but I had no idea what to buy. All my projects were in my car, which we didn't take or at home. I wasn't gonna buy just anything.

Only took a picture of 1 quilt, none just said "WOW" to me. Took this because Michele I know is a Peanuts fan.

more displays...

So here are a couple more ways to put your quilts around the house. You can put them anywhere and everywhere. New ones and old ones!.

How do you display your quilts??

Here are just some of the ways my quilts are displayed in my house. I have many more, but I could only upload 5 pictures for some reason.
I know I dissapeared for a while, back to work, a funeral, company from out of state, projects, my back yard is getting renovated, and then of course FACEBOOK! I find myself on there quite a bit playing games trying to catch up to Kelly and then my sister's scores. Then I have my quilts, quilt guild, friendship group, etc. the list goes on.
Just finished a quilt last night called Fairfax County. LOVE IT!! Civil War materials. I wasn't so fond of it half way through, so many dang 2 1/2 " pieces, AHHHH! I'm glad it's done and can't wait to do the quilting on it.
