Since my last posting, I was able to complete the binding on BOTH quilts you saw!! Yay!! So now I have 2 down in both Eileen's and Peg's Challenges. Here are pictures of both completed projects.
We also managed to take a long weekend and do our yearly trek to Hershey Park...mmmmmm chocolate and to the Kutztown Folk Festival. This one is special because my husband grew up right next door to the fairgrounds and his mom still lives there. So he has been there every year of his life and we all get to see his mom.
For me there is an extra added bonus...The Quilt Barn!! They actually have a quilt show and auction every year. I have entered quilts in the past and have won 2 ribbons there. Here you will find very few machine quilted quilts, mostly hand quilted. A lot are made by the Amish or Mennonite women. Wonderful workmanship. All the pictures of the following quilts ARE the ribbon winners! So sit back and enjoy the pictures.
Also, throughout the 9 days of the festival, in the Quilt Barn, women take turns at the old fashioned quilting bee. Here are a few pictures from the bee.
On a side note, my dear friend Deb has closed here brick and mortar quilt shop. This is the local shop that I worked at and taught classes. But on a great note for all you quilter's she is selling the remaining fabric from her store online at here Gone Quilting site. Everything is 35% OFF so hurry on over and check out the deals!! Tell her that I sent you.
I have also been busy with customer quilts. You check check out the newest additions of beautiful customer quilts here. I have also been working on my mystery by mail 1st clue! Updates to follow.
Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!!
