Earthquake, FQ's, Quilts

As promised I'll share a few more pictures of the quilts that I saw at the International Quilt Festival, but first...some other things...........

Yes, I was in California when the latest earthquake hit. Two of my granddaughters and I happened to be out when it hit. After spending most of my life in So Cal this quake didn't really bother me (I've been in much bigger), but my granddaughters had never been in an earthquake. They took it all in stride...no big deal...


It's official...I'm a FQF (Fat Quarter Freek)! These are the latest additions to my collection that I bought at the International Quilt Festival..............



Some Japanese Silks


Some Asian Prints

A Couple More


and the rest of my new flavors
YUM YUM!

The flamingo print in the bottom left corner was used to back the pillows that my two oldest granddaughters designed and embroidered. I have lots of ideas for the other ones, but nothing concrete, yet.

These are the last two star blocks that I've been working on with Amanda and the gang over at http://www.crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/



And this is another one that goes to my BOM that I'm doing with the Fabric Mill.....................





And here are a few more of the quilts that were at the IQF held in Long Beach, California........

ENJOY.............


QUILT ON;)

Oh wow I love your fat quarters! I am a fat quarter freak - it's almost all I buy now! Loving the orange polka dot one in the top right hand corner!
