Monday's Blossom

#6
Look! It isn't blue.
I have run out of the plastic templates I am using...I guess I have to start sewing them together or purchase another package.  The problem is that so many of my blossoms are blue.
Oh..what is a girl to do?

ELIQG 30th Annual Peconic Quilt Show

Last Saturday, I went to the Eastern Long Island Quilters' Guild 30th Annual Peconic Quilt show.
 There were over 180 quilted items on display.
(These pictures were taken with my phone, so I apologize for the quality of the pictures.)
Here are some of my favorites:


Best in Show ~ "A Quilt as Eternal as the Love We Share" by Galyna Sokolova- Miller.

Member Challenge Exhibit: 30 Something ~ "Everything's 30's" by Jean Bernhardt

Members were challenged to make a quilt that contained exactly 30 something in honor of the show's 30th anniversary. 

Merit Award ~ "My Featherweight 221" by Marie Deuel
"Flower Power" by Diana M. Berthold
"Tail of the Dragon" by Barbara Ryan
This was the first prize from the raffle table. (I did not win) A queen size Grannys' Stars quilt which was made by the EILQG members based on a design by Nancy Mahoney.

I purchased this bag of scraps for $15.00, it was all you could fit. I rolled a lot of fabric in to this bag.  
 I seem to have a thing with blue fabric. I don't really know what is up with that?

Hum...this is blue too!

LOL!

I made this baby blanket over the weekend for a co-worker's baby shower. It is a good thing he isn't having a boy or the blanket would have been blue too!


Keep quilting!

Monday's Blossom

WOW! It is just a perfect day today. The weather is just so wonderful. I can't believe it is Monday already...again. I just don't know where the time goes...

I am using 1 1/2 hexies for my blossoms, so they are a good size.

I also had the opportunity to attend a Quilt show on Eastern Long Island this past weekend. I saw some really fantastic quilts made by some very talented people. (I will share some pictures later on.)

The word for the month of June is....Achievement.
Start thinking about opportunities, not limits, to reach your full potential.

Keep quilting!
