It is that time again: Friday Night Sew In!!

I have plenty to work on tonight. So much in fact, that I made a list! And I am feeling very inspired. Why, you ask? Because yesterday I went to PIQF with my friend Loris. We had so much fun, and saw so many quilts, and did so much talking, and so much shopping, and so much.....

Anyway, it was a great time. And I have a little picture show for you.

New York Beauties are my favorite, and this show did not disappoint!

Whole-cloths with phenomenal quilting!

For my bff, who is a Dear Jane-er.

Baltimore Album anyone. This one was simply stunning.

Ok, seriously. A pineapple-ed hexie! That is some serious workmanship. This one is c. 1890.

For the patriot in me.

Very realistic. Can't you almost smell the ocean air?

Ok, this one had so many of my favorite things: NY Beauties, circling geese, mariner's compass and strings. What a lot of work!!

Isn't this amazing!?

Ok, what about this!? Hard to believe it is all fabric!!

Love birds on a background of excellent quilting.

Pretty huh? Wait'll you see the quilting.


Interesting perspective and beautiful colors. But again, wait'll you see the quilting.

Oh man! This one was a true beauty.

Some fun and funky houses.

For the fall-lover.

The color, pattern and workmanship of this piece were spot-on.

LOVE it. It is not often you see the "Nativity" story portrayed with a pregnant Mary.

Very interesting political piece.

And finally, the quilt that we went to see. This is only 1 of the 4 blocks on this quilt (sorry, poor photos of the whole thing, but believe me, the other 3 animals were just as impressive!). It was made by Loris' friend, Nancy Brown. Isn't it great?!

It is not to late to head up to the show yourself. It runs through tomorrow.


  1. Really incredible. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Absolutely amazing. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Oh my goodness! Where did you see all these beauties?

  4. Wow. What an amazing, inspiring show. You are fortunate to see all the quilts up close and personal. I agree with you about the new york beauties. And the one colour Dear Jane is wonderful.

    I can see why you were inspired....

    So! What are you working on tonight!?
