Hungarian Quilters' Festival

Posted by Susan Sziva on September 17, 2016 at 12:23pm 4 Comments

At the end of August there were a festival organized by Hungarian Patchwork Guild. Unfortunately I have only three hours to visit it. This was enough only to get a quick impression of how wonderful quilts had been made.

The first exhibition showed the quilts created for the tender of the Hungarian Patchwork Guild. The subject was Chemical Elements. The Grand Prix went to Ildiko Kovacs: Limestone Imprints

The award for the best teamwork went to Foltkoltok Tarsasaga. The name of this group is a wordplay, referring to  the film title Dead Poets Society, changing Dead to Patch.  The title of their quilt is Why?

The best machine quilted piece and the best art quilt was Klara Feledyne Szabo: Colorful Fossils

My favorite one got a special award. Levente Sulyok: Chemical Village. 

You could ask, why chemical? (I hope, you see village :-) ). Then let's take a closer look:…


So Far Behind

Posted by Penny Brien on September 12, 2016 at 9:54am 4 Comments

I've always been an over-achiever and I'm amazed at how far behind I have become.

I am testing a pattern for the magazine and it is taking me much longer than I expected. I am part of three different project groups - Two I haven't even decided on fabric for and the third I haven't done the September part yet.  This is just not the way I run my life.  I'm the one who always did projects the minute they were assigned - even if I had months to complete them - now other commitments keep getting in the way.

I'm taking my Grandchildren and my Daughter to Disneyland in October and I've been planning all these surprises for them so every time I sit down to work on my quilting projects I start thinking about other little things I can do for our trip. Perhaps I am traumatized at the thought of a 5 year old and a 3 year old on a car trip for 6 hours and am trying to figure out how to keep them entertained for that long.  Any suggestions?

I wanted to make a princess quilt for them to use in the car on the trip but I'm not sure I'll have time - unless maybe I can figure out a way to use those fabrics in the "Virtual Retreat".  Another thought to keep my mind occupied.

Must get back to my projects.  As my mind trails off in a completely new direction!

Today Sept 6th 2016

Posted by Jennifer Smith on September 6, 2016 at 9:40am 2 Comments

Well I am sure glad that I finished the hockey quilt for my grandson as today I am finally getting my full knee replacement.  I am looking forward to getting this done but a litle scared at the same time. Looking forward to a grest knee and getting back to quilting. 

Hope you all have a great time quiling and will be looking to see what you are working on. This is not quilting but this is what I have been doing lately.  They are crocheted Mandalas that fit over a cork cicle to use as a hot pad and they can be removed for cleaning.  I have a few different colours and hope to do more.

I Won!

Electric Quilt Company is having contests every month this year in celebration of their 25th anniversary. I won the prize from Island Batiks in July. It was 10.7 yards of gorgeous fabric. I will cherish it for a while but I hope to design a quilt to use this fabulous fabric.

BWQ -Block A Week Quilt

Posted by Midge Kincaid on August 24, 2016 at 3:28am 5 Comments

Happy to say I found the rest of the 27 block patterns last night. It took a lot of hours but found the search a worthwhile effort. I didn't sleep much as I had chemo in the morning and looking for themwas a great distraction. I plan to do everything with my scraps on hand, starting with the simpler blocks first. Don't know if I can manage a weekly schedule for 27 weeks, but it will be fun trying.

Quilt Entries

Posted by Betty Erskine on August 19, 2016 at 7:45pm 5 Comments

Well, I picked up my two quilts today from a quilter. I wanted to hand quilt them, but didn't have time to get them done by the entry time. Now to get the bindings on. I've been working on the biggest one since I've been home. Looks like some long hours night. 

But it's a good day to be working on some type of craft. Been raining all afternoon. Sure feels like fall weather here. Actually I've seen leaves turning already.

I'm just so excited about the upcoming quilt show next weekend Aug. 26 - 28th. 

I just heard on the radio station, where my last show will be Sept. 24th, that there will be a confederate show going on. Not sure if it will be having a camp set up or not. But I know they will be telling stories of how it was back then. I know I will surely enjoy that! 

Guess I better get back to binding!
