America Quilts Expo

 The America Quilts Expo opens today in Des Moines. It is part of the Original Sewing and Quilting Expos, so will feature the exhibit of quilts from the Be Creative! Quilt Challenge. Since my quilt, Shortcut, is part of this exhibit I am excited to be going to the show on Saturday with friends. If you are traveling to this show, and you see my quilt, let me know...better yet, take a picture of yourself with it. I'd love to see it.
I met with two of the Sampler Clubs this week. Monday and Tuesday nights were both Larkspur groups, but they are working on different parts of the quilt. Both classes had some quilters missing (busy time of year) but here are some pics from Monday night. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pics on Tuesday night. 

I'm still working on my Henry Glass Desire to Inspire #LoveLaughQuilt project. I pieced a backing and loaded it and the quilt top on the longarm last night, so I will be ready to begin quilting it tonight. I have a panto that is a loose star shape bouncing around that I think will be perfect. I'm anxious to get started on it.

Hi! We went to the Show on Friday and I showed my girls your quilt! Looked great. We had a fun day, new great grandchild ultrasound, lunch, quilt show. And then they came to my place for the weekend. Heaven.
