Quilt Show

This afternoon I went to the Heritage Quilt Guilds Quilt Show.  They are celebrating 35 years.  I've always enjoyed this quilt show.

They had a challenge.  Evidently, everyone had to make a 2 color quilt, using cream and orange.  I didn't take pictures of who made each challenge quilt.

Also, on quite a few of the quilts, from the front door, to the back of the quilt show, had this attached. 
Tom can hang out on my quilts anytime
Now, on to some of the quilts.....

This next quilt was HUGE!  Her comments are touching.

This next quilt also had some touching comments.

This next quilt looks like stained glass.

And this quilt is for all of you cat lovers.

This quilt shows a great way to 'save' your childs baby clothes.

I did a double take when I saw this.  I just had to take pictures of it.

Gee, can you guess why I took pictures of the next 2 quilts????

I spent most of the day, before heading off to the quilt show, at my large quilt guilds sew-in.  I've been cutting out purses, and, today, I started sewing 2 of them together.  Each purse takes about 5 hours, just for the stitching.  Making 2 at a time is almost as easy as just making one (as long as the thread color is the same).  Here are some pictures I took while assembling the purses.  I still have lots left to do on each purse.  Hint, both of them are OU (University of Oklahoma) fabrics.  They are similar, but, slightly different.

I'm not sure when these purses will get finished.  Next week is busy.  I have a sewing machine demo on Saturday and Sunday, at the Kendall County Historical Society's Lyon's Farm Fall Festival (say that 10 times).  So far, I've decided on at least 10 different machines to take.
