Quilts on parade……..

A little while back, the Rio Grande Valley Quilt Guild held their yearly quilt event on South Padre Island(TX). I scooted in for a quick look/see the first morning and here are just a few of my faves…………IMG_8012 IMG_8013IMG_8014IMG_8015IMG_8016IMG_8017IMG_8018 IMG_8028IMG_8019IMG_8021IMG_8020IMG_8022IMG_8023IMG_8024IMG_8025 IMG_8026IMG_8027 IMG_8029IMG_8030 IMG_8032 IMG_8033 IMG_8034IMG_8035IMG_8036 IMG_8037IMG_8038IMG_8039IMG_8040IMG_8041 The last 2 pieces are reverse applique that were beautifully done. The group of “row quilts” before those 2 were done by a several of the “Killer Bees” who meet together, in addition to our regular weekly gatherings! There were so many more displays, all of outstanding construction/techniques.

And so begins another week. What’s under your needle??????? Quilty blessings to you all, dear friends…….

    I like the quilt with the tree and the leaves become birds flying away. Soon I will have a sewing machine and I believe I am able to start quilting and sewing as well. My mom sews really well and quilts. She told me about your site and I have been smiling since yesterday in awe of the creativity. Plus, I like the fact that you are living your reality and on the road. This will soon be me as well with my children as soon as the Lord blesses us with a vehicle. Thank you for sharing and thank you for being a friend to my mother (mtetar/Mary). You have been a blessing and inspiration. 💜
