I was deleting unused/unwanted pictures off my camera card and came across some pictures that I forgot to blog about! Oooops!
This is the PERFECT time to show them as I have absolutely NOTHING to write about!! We have been experiencing gorgeous, warm, sunny weather and I have been taking advantage of it. You know…yard work, cleaning windows, planting bulbs and pruning… the usual Fall stuff. This doesn’t seem to include quilting…darn!!
These are a few of the pictures that I took at the Cloth Castle Quilt Show in August. The ‘theme’ this year was LOG CABIN, which meant the quilts had to be made up of mostly Log Cabin blocks…
Each quilt was numbered (there were no names on the quilts)…that’s because the winner was determined by those attending the QS…we got to vote on our favorite quilt. This was a great idea as it got everyone involved…the only problem was, when the Cloth Castle sent out their New letter announcing which three quilts won they said WHO won- not which numbers won. So I can’t tell you which quilt won or even if I took a picture of the winning quilts because we were going by numbers not name…??? But regardless…lots of lovely quilts and I have to say the Log Cabin is one of my favourite blocks!
Isn’t this a sweet one…again made from the softest flannel and the sweetest snowmen!
An effective, eye catching log cabin…
Can you see the subtle log cabins…? Very nice!!
I love these sweet little quilts…
Gorgeous quilting…wish I had taken a shot of the whole quilt!! Sheesh! Fire the camera man!
This was my favourite and it got my vote…I REALLY want to make this one…look at the little log cabins in the middle of the stars…and there is something about the black background and the scrappy stars and border! Loved it!! In ‘real' life’ this quilt was much brighter…I wished my camera had picked that up…
A couple of close-ups….
So there you have it…log cabins at their best…not a bad day…for nothing to write about!! I have to clean out my camera more often!!
OH and about all that Fall yard work that I have been doing…OK…I confess…it hasn’t been all work…it was such a gorgeous day that my husband and I went for a hike down to the Cowichan River…isn’t it gorgeous!!
I thought I’d take you along…pull up a log, click the button and ENJOY!! …it’s the next best thing to being there!
Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P
