Beautiful Batiks

Shopping at the Quilt Show

There were lots of great vendors at the Charlotte Quilt show. I have been working very hard at using fabric I already own - - but there were so many beauties at the show - I resisted the first time I walked through - but weakened in the end. Look at these 2 great patterns, some beach fabric I have been collecting and some others I couldn't resist.

Starry Night

This is really cool. Students at a middle school I serve paint murals on the walls around their school. (They have a very good art teacher) This is one of the walls they are painting.
I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day. ~Vincent Van Gogh

Star Quilt A Long Blocks

Block 1
Block 2

Block 3

Block 4

A long long time ago - (April 2008) my quilting buddy shared this blog with me and asked if I wanted to quilt a long with her. Then life got in the way - and we never did...although - of course I had already bought I put it on my must do list for 2009. So here goes - today when we had a snow day - I completed blocks 1 - 4 and cut out block 5. The fabric for the background has little gold flecks in it and the other fabrics are more olivey green in nature than they might appear here.
