More quilts to ogle and Steampunk dolls...




While we were looking at quilts, Cindy saw this one and said "I quilted this one!" She has quilting business and remembered this unique quilt. So we had to get a picture of her with it! I think it looks like Conrad posed for this quilt, don't you?
 Both of these quilts are from a Judy Niemeyer pattern, one was huge and the other throw size. Both were gorgeous!
I think one of the fun things about going to local quilt shows is the inspiration that follows. It makes you want to run home and sew!
 Especially if you happened to find some fabric that went home with you.

 This spiderweb design had an interesting front and back.


 This one was so gorgeous and this picture washed it out. The quilter did a wonderful applique job on it.
Just plain fun!
 Sock Monkeys!
 Another teeny tiny....


 Family names on a quilt....great idea!
 These were little beds with pillows!
 And lots of cute girls!
 I enjoy the cloth dolls at the show every year. I know a few of the creators, they are so  much fun and put so much love into their dolls.
 I had to look up what steampunk meant....I'd heard the word before but really had no idea.Even after reading the definition, I'm still not 100% sure I know what it means.....
I went to Earling to see my folks yesterday and had a great day of visiting. We went to lunch at the local bar/cafe, my sister came over for lunch, as well as 2 nephews. Then we spent the afternoon chatting. Our family reunion is next weekend, so I will be heading up again.

The quilt that was "just plain fun", I can see you making a quilt like that. Maybe even a class....

I went to the show also. Wasn't it fun to see all the quilts (and vendors)! I found some good stuff to take home.

I like the local shows a lot, especially ones that are away from my local guilds to see the fun things other people do. The big shows are fun, but many of the quilts they showcase are just not something I would make. The rails and cats are awesome! Thanks for sharing.

Steampunk is like a mix of technology and old-timey stuff. Kind of a historical sci-fi type of thing.
