Some people bring home stray dogs and cats…I bring home stray UFOs! Yup, you heard me!! I brought home another one!
When I got to Heritage yesterday, their annual Quilter’s Sale was in full swing!! Thank goodness I forgot or I would have hit the ATM before coming! I had to limit my spending to $10…which is what I managed to scrounge together from the bottom of my purse!
Lots of books and fabric and quilting frames for sale!
Hey, there’s Heritage Judy…in the striped sweater! (She will be trading that sweater and those socks in for a bathing suit and sandals when she heads south shortly!!) Anne, sitting next to her in the green sweater…see she is picking up a book…well she gave me the ‘hard sell’ and sold me that book for a whole dollar…my LAST dollar too!
Let me show you where my $10 went! Anne’s book for $1…
I am such a sucker for log cabins and homespun!! Anne KNEW this I’m sure! She even flipped the book open….SOLD!!
Carol sold me these…Triangles on a Roll…I have never tried them before! Three rolls of different sizes (two unopened) and the book on how to use them!! Score for $5!! I’ll let you know how they work!
And when I saw these hand pieced blocks…looking at me with those hound dog eyes and whimpering to go home with me…how could I possibly say NO?!
There are nine finished blocks…
So that made short work of my $10!! Great fun!
Now onto the Show and Tell…this hand pieced quilt was getting basted ready for hand quilting!!
I wish I had a video on how these masters use a spoon to help control that needle! Amazing and fast too!
The spoon helps to lift the needle so it is easier on the fingers when they grasp the needle!
I am going to try this next time I need to baste or pin a quilt!
Lots of hand quilting happens at Heritage as the ladies visit with each other!
Hazel was busy pinning together logs…I predict that she will have this one together and quilted by next Monday! You heard it here first!!
Connie was putting the final touches onto her Advent Christmas Tree! Very cute!
Another charity quilt finished and ready to go to where ever the need happens to be!
Yes, this is another of Betty’s charity quilts!! She has such a way with colours…love this one! Beautifully quilted by Hazel!
One of the members who usually makes ALL of her quilts for Charity finally made one for herself!! There was a loud cheer from our members when they heard that this beauty is staying with her!
Joan made this sweet Halloween Wall hanging…all paper pieced and so dang sweet!
This is a good one to end with!! The end of October is fast approaching and with it will come black cats and bats and jack-o-lanterns!
Have a spooktacular day!~P
