Instagram....oh my!!!!

Yes....I am still here. 

 Sadly, Instagram has become my "go to". 
 I hope you will join me there, and I do promise to update my blog more often!!!

Where have I been....well my sweet possee of friends and I attended "Road to California". 
Gosh did we have a GREAT time!!!

There were wonderful traditional quilts...

Many just spoke to me in their simplicity. 

This one appreared to be very simple....

...until you looked closer at the amazing quilting. 

Modern quilts were well represented...

....and pictorial quilts in abundance. 

I cannot even imagine the talent it takes to create a quilt like this...

...or like this. 

I tend to focus more on what I believe to be something I am capable of reproducing.

I loved the quilting on this quilt and it has made me 
want to revisit my own book"Dutch Windmills". 

This was an adorable quilt....but sadly the pattern was only available with the kit purchase.

So a quick pic, and it was the first quilt I went home to create.
I will share it in my next post. 

I equally enjoy meeting up with dear old friends....

....and did I mention the SHOPPING????

Of course I came home with an abundance of Pam Kitty Garden. 

Yes.....I had to find some adorable patterns for the little ladies in my life.

My fingers are itching to sew little girl dresses!!!

I end with the "how do I describe this quilt"

If you looked at it from the center you saw this....  

If you stepped to the left you saw this....

....and if you stepped to the right you saw this!!!!

All three faces in ONE quilt. 
 Yes, it is wonderful to spend a day at a quilt show.

I came home exhausted, but SEW inspired!!!!

Oh my indeed Annelies! Such amazing quilts! Love the three faces and fell in love with the lighthouse!
It looks like a quilter's heaven over there, it must have been fun and inspirational.
