There have been some awards that came thru... this one titled Day Of The Dead was so special to me. This quilt begged to be called the girlfriend quilt because I was with my girlfriend gathering all the fabrics in so many locations we were in. My quilts take so long,,,, not a fast process a couple of years but never working on anything all the time lots of stuff going on all the time. A little here a little there.. A few weeks ago it took Judges Choice in the state show here in St George Utah. This quilt makes me smile!

Last weekend, just on a whim, i decided to invite some of the quilting girls over for a party! And in a moment of weakness, we invited our husbands as well. We ate classic Memorial Day food: cheeseburgers, fruit-kabobs, potato salad, and strawberry shortcake! The highlight of the party was when Mr. OneWildStitch made his famous pomegranite martinis! The lowlight was when we had to move the party inside because of 50 mph winds! My daughter helped make some of the decorations, and the ones she didnt make i got at the Dollar Store! It was such a fun party and we all had such a great time! Pictures are below!
Hey everyone! Sorry i have not posted for a few weeks. I traveled 2 weeks back to back and am finally home and ready to resume working on my quilts! I was at HMQS in Salt Lake City, Utah. We traveled with the Innova team. We didnt get to see everything because we were so busy working at our booth. I had a great time catching up with friends and family, but im glad to be home! When i got home on Sunday, i only had a few hours to relax before i had to work in the shop on Monday, and then on Tuesday i went to MQS in Overland Park, Kansas. We were there purely as spectators! I took 6 classes and by far my favorite was Gina Perks on her background fills. My friend Charlotte and i also got certified to teach Pam Clark's design with lines technique. This week looks to be a little more quiet, and we'll have lots of photos next week!
The Gems of the Desert sponsored by the Dixie Quit guild had their quilt show this Easter weekend! I was the co-chair along with Charlotte and Rosemary. We had 2 full years to plan this show! The funnest thing about planning this show was getting to know so many of the quilt guild ladies! I was in charge of the quilt boutique for the guild. Here are some photos of the magic we created!
And a big shoutout to all the ladies who help put this together!
