Last week I spent a few days visiting my talented and dear friend, Mary,
and got to attend the American Quilter Society show in
Mary won not one, but TWO blue ribbons!
It was so exciting to share this moment with her.
I also got to meet Julie, a long-time blogging friend, and see her wonderful barn quilt.
There was an Egyptian tent maker,
demonstrating his amazing appliqué.
Notice his quickly moving hand!
Junko and Katsuhiko Sakiyama of Caohagan (pronounced cow-hah-gah) were also there,
showing and selling the stunning and whimsical quilts made by island natives.
Every single one was captivating! Here are just a few.
OK. Back to work, refreshed and VERY inspired!
