more of my travels

I had a good look around Salt Lake City and visited a small quilt museum. Above are some of the quilts on display. Not so sure about the squirrel one?? Made by a 13 year old girl who apparently hunted the furry creatures then made a quilt from the skins.

 The gorgeous Kellie and Jan from "Don't look now" were very busy and below is one of Kellies designs on display at a quilt shop I visited in the Utah Valley

Thank you Jennifer, Elizabeth, Sue, Kelly, Melissa and Cathy for a scrumptious dinner and fun night in general. I bought a sewing project with me but I have been so busy socialising I haven't done a stitch. It has been a wonderful few days. I am sorry the photos are a little dull but I am wor…

the circle game

For all those who have emailed to ask to see the quilt. I think someone doing the BOM program must have popped some blocks on their blog.
Happy mothers day to all the yummy mummys out there.

mini quilt finished

Been a busy little bee quilting and binding my Down Under Doll Quilt project.

I have had so much fun with this one and can't wait to find out what my partner thinks.
