Quilts in the Boro 2016

Well, here's why I was beading my sunflowers:
This year I decided to make me a Ukrainian costume for our local quilt show "Quilts in the Boro". I am still managing our "General store",  so I think this outfit was quite appropriate for this event and brought some colors and character to it.

 We had 65 quilts displayed in 6 different categories. More than 600 people visited our show last weekend and we had many positive remarks. All our vendors were also very pleased.

I got the Second pace for my "Sailboats"

and third place for my "Birdhouses, ivy and lilac"

We also had Crayons challenge this year!!  All 20 quilts were displayed in the classroom at the quilt show and we let the public vote.   Every one that was displayed received multiple votes.  My colors were "Wild strawberry" and "Peach", and this is my "Strawberry patch" challenge quilt:

As our vice-president said after all: "Congratulations to Natalie P. for receiving the most votes!!" Yay!!!

And here are some quilts which are well deserved ribbons and just being seen one more time - .

Birdhouses, ivy and lilac

Finally I turned my birdhouses and ivy leaves (Pam Bono design) into a quilt, which were technically set aside and forgotten for couple years...

This is how it turned out.
It's really small quilt, just 17" x 23". 
It's been half way done and last year and was set aside for a while... But, when you know the quilt show is coming, it makes you do some actions! It took me about the same time quilting as I did piecing and fusing.

Lenore Crawford design.
Will be displayed at our local annual quilt show tomorrow.
Please, come to vote and have fun at our show!

Happy quilting!

Meditation: beading with TED talks

Beading is one more thing I like doing for meditation or just relaxation.
It's really time consuming, so I combine my beading time with listening to TED talks. Just for information: beading one sunflower heart takes about FOUR talks!
