"Turn up the music
Turn it up loud
Take a few chances and let it all out
'Cause you won't regret it
Looking back from where you have been
'Cause it's not who you knew
And it's not what you did
It's how you live."
In my last class I had a classmate make this statement "As always, thank you for your patience, support, and everything. You are the best team member i have ever worked with and I am sure it reflects in everything you do in life." Now keep in mind we only communicate through an online class room. I feel that he truly got to see the real me, the one full of the Holy Spirit. Others have commented on things also; how do you seem so happy through lifes ups and downs. I have to remember its not what I do but "How I Live." This means not just our actions but the words we speak. This song reminds me that we need to live not sit inside our houses and hide, but spread the music in our souls to others which can be done online, over the phone or in person. But it says " This little light of mine I'm going to let it shine. Hide it under a bushel NO, I'm going to let it shine." Let's let our lights shine bright and turn up the music.

This other fall quilts use of batik in the border really made the design. This quilt is called "Autumn Glory" by Jean Mohanna and was hand appliqued and quilted.
I found this Peacock to be extremely interesting, especially using really feathers. In my house the cats would be in trouble all the time trying to play with those feathers. I did not write down the number/nor did the camera catch it but I do believe this is by Debbie Krugman "Island Peacock."
The last quilt for the day is by Stella Schaffer and is a mini Lone Star measuring 15"X15".

Today I went to another local quilt show, Yes I took pictures, and picked up the perfect embelishment for the silt on my corn block from Farmers Market quilt. While at the quilt show I was asked if I wanted to join their guild. I politely declined because I already am in 3 local and 1 state guild. I do not want to stretch myself to thin. Of course had to do the grocery shopping while in town. Then finished piecing and stitching down the pieces on a small quilt for a guild auction being held next Saturday.
Tomorrow I have to get the small quilt, quilted and the binding on so that I can deliver to the guild meeting on Tuesday. Luckily it is a very small quilt 13X13. So it should not take very long to finish it.
I do plan on starting to go through the bags of fabric I received to get that done, and the extra fabric ready to give to the guilds for cuddle quilts. We make quilts and give them to Health and Human services for the kids when they are taken from their homes. It is a great cause and I know that there is no way I need all of that fabric given to me. I do want to get started on this huge task tomorrow.
Also I hope I can get those pictures posted.
Hope everyone is having a happy quilty weekend. ;-)

This quilt was one passed from one state guild memeber to another getting another piece of the picture placed onto it. I like elephants and this one was so well designed and put together. It truly was traffic stopping detailed.

I managed to keep up Pat Sloans Machine quilting book, and did see a vendors rendition of her Bluebirds of Happiness quilt.
One great new find and company is Fig Tree Quilts. I just could not resist this pattern. I left the fabric kit there, but made sure to get a phone number in case I changed my mind later.
Stay tuned till tomorrow for pictures of quilts from the show and some of my other great finds.

Sew I decided that my Project for Tuesday was actually to reward myself at the same time of getting guild sewing done. And that is one more project done.
