UFO's, Hattiesburg , MS Quilt show...and the Halloween finery of our wee one!




Well, still not heard if my ship is coming in ...this week...but holding thumbs that it will. I had so much fun doing the barbecue on Friday, also got this lovely picture of the wee one...in his Halloween finery. His mom sent this to me.... love those Amish MUMS in the background. I so wish I had some in my yard! Had to finally finish up my little Halloween UFO.....Then had the lucky opportunity to go to the Hattiesburg, MS quilt show on Sat. with a few new acquaintances. I think my eye must have changed, as much as I enjoyed seeing the variety of pieced quilts.....I really found myself focusing on the machine quilting on many of these. So if you are bored with some of my shared photos...so sorry, but was so excited to try new things.... that had to take a bunch of photos of the quilting.
there were so many pretty ones...they had over 480. So many really nice ones, I found it hard to choose ...but liked many for a multitude of reasons. Now I have always loved appliques...but some of the cool black and white pieced ones caught my eye as well.... as have been collecting them for years. I didn't see any civil war or DJ, another one I hoped to see ...as so want to do one of each. But plenty to get my mind working on the next batch of UFO's!!!This is a closeup of my favorite, white on white..wholecloth, absolutely stunning. She only got her longarm the beginning of the year. What a beauty! There is something for me to only aspire to! And the lovely pastel pink fabric on the back. It was gorgeous..pics don't do it justice. It was on a back wall...with not enough room for longer photo. But absolutely my favorite.It even beat out the Baltimore!Hope you all have a great day!

It's always fun to see what quilts are at the shows - my favorite is one is the stars.
