I had a less than favorable week last week...
but the weekend
It was our guild's quilt show
(that only happens every other year)
I had two quilts entered into it.
The one quilt was my Coastal Lily quilt.
Pattern by Minick and Simpson.
I got it back from the quilter two days before the deadline to
turn it in.
But I made it
and I couldn't have been more
I even a few minutes at my son's home to do a little
photo shoot, with the assistance of my sweet DIL,
If you remember, Thelma aka Miss Cupcake and I started
our quilts together.
She of course finished way faster than I did...
and you have seen her quilt everywhere...
and if you are like me...
I am just drooling whenever I see it pop up on Pinterest
or other places!
I went with a beachy look for my Coastal Lily.
I grew up at the beach...
so it just seemed fitting.
I honestly wanted to get out of appliqueing those circles...
so I made mini yoyo's instead.
I am not sure if that was a good idea...
but there you are.
It was so sunny
and very hard to not have glare.
But I think you can see some of the detail that
my quilter did.
Her name is Jeri at A Thread Above.
She was inspired by Judi at Green Fairy Quilts (of course).
And here are a couple of
photos from the show.
Notice the blue ribbon there?
Guess who got Best of Show?
It was such a fun surprise!
I was tickled pink to say the least!
Oh... and more good news from the weekend...
my cat, who disappeared on Monday showed up
at my door at midnight Saturday night.
He was every traumatized but Leo is home!
