Spring Quilt Market 2012 - Kansas, MO

Ok, so I have back for several days from quilt market.  I had a wonderful time.  So many familiar faces.  It is always fun to reconnect!
Car loaded and ready to go!!!

Lots and lots to unload.  Do you see what I I had in my Tahoe; just a ton of stuff!  It takes days to pack and even more to unpack and re-organize.  Most is done however, I still have to return a few borrowed items.

This is such a welcoming site when you enter KC...the bridge is just incredible!

Very cool bridge entering Kansas City, MO

I want to show you just a few of the pics I took.  Hope you enjoy them.

Class Quilts

Time to share a few class quilts.  Jo's Little Women class is going strong.  We began in March 2012.  So many wonderful quilts to make and such yummy fabrics.  The first sample I made is called "Eggs and Bacon", size 36-1/2" square.

The next month the club got together and I showed them some of the tiniest piecing I have ever done.  This one is called "Transferware". The name comes from mid-18th century china or pottery.  The finished size of the flying geese is 5/8" x 1-1/4".  Sew tiny!
Tonight was our third class.  We had 2 quilts this time.  Both quilts were completed using 9-Patches.  I love, love, love 9-Patches.  I never get bored of them and that is a good thing considering there are 109 1-1/2" finished little darlings in these 2 quilts.

I promised I would post a picture of the back side of "Framed" to show the clipping technique up close.

Here are a few class member quilts too.  Enjoy!!!

Nice use of Jo's fabrics

Hope you enjoy the pictures.  Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
Happy Quilting,
