WIP Wednesday!


My blogs been quiet again.  What have I been doing you ask?   Well, ever since the small town quilt show I have been gone!  

At the quilt show in midway besides a few classes, I was able to go to 3 trunk shows.  I've never been to a trunk show before, but I love them!  First I went to the two sisters Jenny and Helen from Sew Kind of Wonderful.  

Most of their quilts use the quick curve ruler and YES I did purchase one.  I think my favorite quilt of their was:


Next I went to the trunk show by  Sherri Mcconnell, let me just say she is amazing!  Her blog 
www.aquiltinglife.com is fabulous and so is she as a person!  I really want to make this quilt of hers :


This is my favorite of hers:


Lastly, I went to Emily Herrick of crazy old ladies.  She has a very unique style, but I like it and I purchased a few of her patterns.


Lori Holt had the final trunk show that day, I really would have loved to attend but it was late and I needed to drive down the canyon home, not something I like doing a lot late at night.  

Now what have I been working on,  tablerunners!  As we drove across the corn fields of Nabraska last weekend I bound a summery and a Halloween tablerunner.  

Summer is my favorite season and so it's no surprise that this is my favorite table runner.  I love the pattern that a local cotton shop created for a small class I attended to make this class.  



Quilting, I am still learning on my new Aria machine, but it's improving quickly.

You can see some the the quilting on the back.


Halloween, I love this pattern (and I will update when I get home for the name of the pattern).  If you like to appliqué, it's easy.  If you don't love to appliqué and need help, this gives you experience you need.  I would rate this as a beginner lev



Now where am I, we just drove 1600 miles to visit Missouri and Illinois with my 4 children (I feel a little crazy right now).
I am sharing the post on Lets Bee Social  and Freshly Pieced
