Sharon had her Blue ribbon quilt! Woo hoo!! She is an expert quilter and very productive! And Sandy had her Snowman quilt! I just fell in love with it!

I am going to post more pics in my webshot and tomorrow I will post photos of Shipshewana!

Rest of the trip: One night, I shared a pizza with some friends from a quilting bee.

Then we visited The Quilt Merchant, spent some wonderful time chatting with Docia, Beth and the girls, had lunch with Leanne, missed Teresa, very sad about this...

We went also to A touch of Amish... And we went to Oswego where we shared a delicious lunch with my friends from the Civil War Club, very fun! It is so nice to be with good friends! Mary has finished her Orange Crush, don't you like it Bonnie?

Hi, I am back from a wonderful vacation in Chicago area! I stayed with my good friend Sheri and her generous family! It was really great! My first day there started with a Show and Tell : Monique Dillard from Open Gate participated in a Half square triangles exchange at Prairie stitches in Oswego! So she presented quilts using those HS Triangles plus other quilts! Here we are with Chloe, Sheri's youngest! I am going to post the pictures of the quilts in my webshot... But here is one I could not resist to buy the pattern and the kit!

Back to quilting this week! I finished this blue one for a friend. The next one is already loaded on the machine! I just love quilting, it gives life to the quilt!
And I finished the binding on my first DJ siggies quilt from the 2006 swap. My kids love to look at where all the blocks come from!

Very nice day yesterday with an Australian quilting friend Bev and her daughter Claire and Will ! The weather wasn't the best but we had fun! Sharing quilting ideas is so great! Some of Will's hand sewing projects, aren't they cute? I just love the rickrack red handles!
