She also had a booth there selling her patterns and kits and also some fabric. I should have taken a picture of her booth - it is amazing to see all of her beautiful work hanging together. Leslie, another good friend, goes along with Linda and helps her.
I have some more pictures of other pretty quilts which I will save for another post! I would say that the first annual Quilters Showcase started out with a bang. A lovely time of year to have it - the fall color is starting in mid-Michigan and it was a lovely day. Good time!!!

I had some of this ombre fabric that I will use for sashing. Ordered more of it from Glorious Color so now have enough to do anything I want with it. Love, love the colors. Not sure what I will do for the border but I have plenty of the background fabric and the green for stems if I wish to use it.

Since becoming a great grandma and having little ones in the family again, I find myself drawn to projects that would be fun young children maybe now or maybe
later. Pinterest is a treasure trove for all things fun. Case in point - this sweet nativity scene made from felt and found at the following link along with patterns.http://stayathomeeducator.com/a-felt-nativity-story/
If you like this felt snowflake garland on rickrack, go to the link above and find out all about this pretty project. Would be rather labor intensive, but what a beauty you would have over the years. So many beautiful things to make!!!!
Pinterest is full of such awesome stuff!
Next post I do will be on the Nancy Page Laurel Wreaths quilt I started some time ago. I have been sewing leaves on the last of the wreaths and will be appliquing the squares between. I am hot and cold on that one, but warmer than I am cool.
