Utah Quilt Guild

My friend Niquie and I had the opportunity to take a class from Karen K. Stone at the Utah Guild's Annual Quilt Fest! We only had time in our schedules for one class and I'm so glad we ended up in the Happy Ric Rac Class with Karen. She is so talented and what amazing quilts and ideas. She was very generous and shared so much about her inspiration and how she accomplished her creativity on her quilts. Here are a few pictures. Remember that these are for my personal enjoyment and be respectful and don't "steal" them.

Me, Karen, and Niquie. Kind of blurry, but that could be a good thing! LOL

NE Quilt Show!

I do have some quilts that I've accomplished since last posting, but I'll have to post them later. I went to the Boston Area with DH who went on business, and YES I had to look up anything quilty in the area. I found a Quilt Museum in Lowell, Mass and while on their website I noticed that they weren't having a regular class session because of a Quilt Show. So I looked it up and the Mancuso organization was doing a show in Manchester, NH. Only an hour away!! So we had to go! Poor Hubby got drug to 2 quilting things in one week! He was a good sport and I love him for it. Here's a few pics. Please be respectfully and realize that these were taken for my own enjoyment and should not be used for commercial or other unlawful enterprises!

I'm Here!

So, Yes I'm still alive! I've even been quilting. The 3 year old is starting pre-school and we're trying to adjust and then I have plans to make progress and get to posting regularly AGAIN!!

So Here's Niquie's quilt that I finished. The pattern is called Portugese Tiles out of some book she has, and I just freehanded it.
On a SAD note, our LQS in Centerville is closing!! Our quilt group that has been meeting there for many years, is not going to have a home any more. We'll have to come up with some new plans.
