Quilt & Fiber Arts Show and Sale

I realize that most of you are too far away....but, just in case you happen to be travelling at this time.
Here is info on our show this year....we display over 100 quilts to show and sell.  Plus we have an applique display at the same time...and a workshop as you can see below.  This is all taking place at our Historical Museum and courthouse.
Besides quilts, there are smaller crafts of all sorts, and quilt tops. This is our first year with a Merchants Mall, too...going to be fantastic!




If you know anyone travelling to New Brunswick, Canada at this time, please let them know...a good day had by all.  We are located very close to the Hopewell Cape Rocks Park too....the words largest natural flower pots.

WIPs

Hello everyone ...been a month since I showed anything here.  I am always quilting, but sometimes neglect to post..sorry.

I think the last time you saw this one, it was being hand quilted. Well, it is finished and been picked up.
This gorgeous quilt belongs to Marla, from Marla's Crafts. I have been doing her hand quilting for some time now. I really like the freshness of blue and white...
I have been busy working on projects for two blog hops coming up the end of May and in July, but can't show those til then.
This is what I am hand quilting now...and I have a twin size quilt pin basted and ready for Lily.  Most likely, after the weekend...I think I need to mow grass! 
Last weekend, we did an early Mothers Day thingy with our oldest son and his family.  We hiked up Shepody Mt., which I haven't done in 10 years!  We had a great afternoon..31/2 hours of hiking, came home to a lovely supper made by our daughter in law, who hiked with us, too.  She had made lasogna, garlic bread, and had a tuxedo cake for dessert...our son did the dishes!  A fun day had by all...

Have a fantastic weekend folks...see you soon.

Hi everyone...it is Tuesday, and a gorgeous day here in Southern New Brunswick.  I have been cooking, cleaning, went for a walk...and as the ice is melting from our pond....I can watch the goldfish swimming around. Our pond water is at its best this time of the year...so very clear.

Now....quilting is going like crazy here!  We had our group sewing day yesterday, and I had a blast!
Now, to explain....first off, I forgot my lunch!!!  Well, I ate better than ever...lol always great friends looking out for you, eh.  Then, half hour into the morning, I realize I didn't have all the fabric I needed with me.   So.....what did I do all day?   Well, I helped some of the girls with their projects.  I put in a non boring day!!
Now, on to my works in progress....I finished my Big Ten quilt on Lily Saturday morning.

Freehand flowers and leaves all over this one.  And Sunday evening, I finished hand quilting the Geese Variation, made by Merrill, my husband. I'll have to take a pic of the back for you too.
Here's a better one....
And...

Borders

Will get a better pic of this later on...not seeing two of the nicest borders here.  I put this customer quilt in to be hand quilted this afternoon.
Can't wait to get at it!!!!  Have a fantastic week everyone...I'm off to get a tea and relax a bit.

What I'm Working On....

Hey folks, hope everyone has had a good weekend.  Mine went too fast, but, enjoyed it.  This afternoon we got to watch two of our grandsons play hockey...I love it!!!

On to quilting, eh...I have this customer quilt in being hand quilted.
I'm just past the center with the quilting.  I have my "Wallflower" quilt on Lily, just getting started with it.
And...
I'm freehand quilting flowers in the borders, then I will do some ruler work with freehand in the blocks.
Will be puttering in the sewing room this week too...working a bit on a couple of table runners, and some bindings.  Then, I have to start piecing a quilt for a customer...so, lots going on.

I'm hoping someone might sneak in while I sleep and do a little of my spring cleaning!!!!  Maybe???

Small, Smaller, and Smallest

Well folks, how are you enjoying the hop so far??? We have some very talented people sharing their work with us...right? I want to thank Carol, from Just Let Me Quilt for hosting for us again.

This time, I have a little table runner to show you...it is Echos table runner from Connecting Threads.
The top is pieced with Batiks, and it is one that goes together very quickly.
A closer look so you can maybe see the quilting a little.  It is swirls in gold Glide thread done on Lily.
This next project wasn't done for this hop....but, they are small, so.....going to show them to you.
These are from a paper pieced pattern called Tall Tree Trim...kind of neat, eh.  Here are a couple of small ones from the past...mug rugs with photos printed on fabric.
And...pin cushion

Please visit everyone on the list below and show some love.  Thanks for visiting!!!
