Mary and I had quite a time at the show in Daytona Beach!  There were so many fine piecing quilt kits and lots of cross stitch and embroidery kits , too at the many vendors..
This quilt resonated with me....Shattered is its title.  It is a bit how I feel--I had a setback with my right hand;  the tendon to my thumb ripped so I am unable to move my thumb.  It happens to 1-2% of the people who have this kind of break.  It is nice to be one of the special ones.  Surgery will take place next week.. We started out late to the show because we had to go the the hand drs first.  Mary went with me, rolling with the circumstances and supporting me all the way!  We laughed,  cried and headed to the show.  Now you know why I identified with this quilt!
This one was very cool!
I liked the Spring colors against the grey of this one.
What's not to love about this couple?!
I am going to try this one---not hard, just needs a bit of planning!
Marsel, daughter, this one would look good in your family room!
Janette, Mom, this one would've been your favorite because of the jolt of blue!
This one is all solid fabrics but the quilting gives it much more texture and dimension!

This is made of varying widths of strips of fabric jjoined with 45^ angles...very cool yet calm!
 And here are the happy quilt viewers!!


  1. Oh dear! so sorry about your thumb. That shattered quilt is pretty cool and I love the one with the beetles on it! Best of luck with the surgery.

  2. Oh Connie, I'm so sorry to read this about your thumb. If there is anything postibe about it at all, it would be that you can have surgery so soon. But, I am so sorry my friend.
    How fun that you were able to go to the quilt show right after with your sweet friend and able to take your mind off of it a bit.
    Each quilt you showed I thought that it was my favorite until the next one! There was definitely a lot of talent being displayed there/
    Blessings and hugs,

  3. Looks like it was a beautiful show.

    I like the grey/spring colors one! WOW! Was there cross stitch for sale too?

  4. Those are some amazing quilts. At least we live in a time when they can do the surgery to repair your hand. Glad you had a friend for emotional support! Big hugs!

  5. I am so sorry to hear about your hand. That just stinks. The show looked great though. I would have died seeing all those cross stitch kits. I have a weakness for buying them. It's too bad I don't have the same weakness for working on them.

I hoped to make 10 yesterday but I will make the other three today.  Nice to have the house deep cleaned--all corners tamed and the other sl...
