Streetsboro Quilt Show - 2017

The best way to write this post is to let the pictures speak for themselves.  I will insert comments as they are needed.  Enjoy the Show!

When you enter the show you are greeted by the stunning Hunter's Star raffle quilt, assorted gift baskets and smiling faces.  Let the fun begin!!

Heinke's quilt won a ribbon for best use of color.  You can see why.

So proud of our youngest quilters!

The Quilt Show is where you meet up with your friends and relatives

Our Prize Winners

Sharon presents the ribbon for "Viewer's Choice" to Marion.  

This lucky lady won the Quilting Basket!  

Kathy was totally thrilled to be the big winner of the raffle quilt.

2017 Retreat at Zinck's - Berlin, Ohio

Okay, I admit this retreat was in June and it is now September.  My blog has been suffering some neglect this summer.  So sorry.  Still, I want to maintain my quilting adventures on my blog, so please excuse my late posts.  I will try to catch up soon.

Jen's Block
The retreat at Zinck's is always fun and full of ideas for new projects.  On this weekend, Gretchen instructed us on how to make a "Tumbling Block" wall hanging.  It was really fun and easier than we expected.  Here are some of the Tumbling Blocks we completed:
Barbie's and my Tumbling Blocks

One ambitious person decided to make a whole quilt of tumbling blocks - Awesome!

Other projects that caught my eye:


This Quilt below is all "Hand-sewn" and I've been watching it grow for the last three years.  It's a Hexie, but each square is fussy cut to form the design.  Absolutely a work of art!  


Another great retreat complete in Amish country.

Spring Time QBee Day

Trees are blooming - Grass is Greening - Machines are humming and Quilts are Springing

QBee Day at Barb B's has become a yearly get-together.  Her house sits out in the middle of the country and it was a beautiful spring day to sew and eat and gab.

Here are some show and tells and other highlights from the day.

Barb"s beautiful quilt that she resurrected out of a pile of vintage stars.  Awesome work.

This is what happens if you celebrate your birthday on a QBee Day - Bunny Ears and Photo Bombing.  

I'm smiling as I remember this day of good friends, sewing and fun.
