I was released from my motherly duties this afternoon so I could go to town and attend a craft and art fair and to go to the Hill Country Quilt Guild‘s annual quilt show. Had a great time with my aunt and enjoyed all of the creativity a girl could ask for!
Let me first say that I am traditional from the word GO. I love traditional quilt blocks, I love seeing pieced quilts made from these blocks, etc. I was extremely disappointed to see SO MANY art quilts vs. traditional quilts at the show. In fact, I think there were nearly as many traditional quilts in a vendor’s booth as I saw hanging in the show. Disappointed, for sure. NOT that I don’t “enjoy” art quilts … I just feel that they should be shown and judged separately (and yes, I feel appliqued quilts should also be separate from traditional quilts).
I’m a traditional quilt snob!
But, there was one quilt that just AMAZED me! Here is a stunning yo-yo block quilt:
And the part that will now amaze YOU is that THIS is the real size of this little gem:
YES! FOR REAL! This teeny-tiny yo-yo block quilt was 6″ wide and 9″ long! Heck, the RIBBON is bigger than the entire project! Oy … my fingers hurt just thinking about putting all of those yo-yos together!
You know, the guy and his ark? If you see him, please send him our way! These are the roads to and from our house:
Is it a time to celebrate? Or a time to cry? Milestones are happening everyday, but a big one occurred this date. Yes, our youngest baby graduated from kindergarten! We’re ever so proud – and sad, all at the same time!
