Do you hear the waves crashing on the shore? The wind blowing through the palm fronds? The kids running down the beach? Do you smell the salt water and the suntan lotion?
Me either.... at least, not yet. But tomorrow I will be sitting on a beach soaking up some sun! Woohoo!!!
All that is to explain why I didn't quite get a finish this week, because I've been so busy getting everything ready for our trip. But I did manage to do the piecing for the front of my Hands2Help challenge quilt (the first one)....
I still need to applique the flowers to the front of the flimsy, but at least it's a start!
And now, to make up for my lack of finish this week, I've got pictures of some beautiful finishes by other people - some of the quilts we saw at the quilt show in Paducah last weekend! Enjoy.....
|Great use of color and modern design!|
|The whole quilt on the left - detail of that pink square on the left|
side of the quilt in the next frame. Check out those
teeny-tiny log cabin blocks!
|Aren't these gorgeous?|
|The quilting on both of these was amazing|
and added so much to the finished quilt!
|I love the use of brights in these three quilts...|
|Pictures do not do these three justice....|
|And last but not least, my two favorite Christmas quilts.|
The one on the left was amazingly detailed but monochromatic.
The one on the right had so many things to look at it was hard to see it all!
There were so many beautiful quilts in Paducah - a good reminder of what wonderful things you can do if you love to cut fabric up and sew it back together again! I hope you gained some inspiration from these pictures - I know I did!
And now it's your turn - what have you been working on this week? I hope you'll share so we can all be inspired by what you've done! Remember, you've got until Saturday at midnight - if the linky doesn't say that it's closed, you can still link up! And be sure to share the bloggy love - the best part of a linky party is reading the comments!!
I don't know if I'll have a finish next week, but I'll definitely be able to show something I've been working on - the sewing machine is going with me!
