Landrum, SC Quilt Show 2011

A small town, but a big show. Landrum Quilt Guild presents their show every other year which gives time to acquire a bevy of beautiful quilts, wonderful vendors and outstanding raffle quilt.

The one that got away--did not win this one.

Having my own demo space made it special in Landrum. A chance to see many friends and catch up on quilt talk.

Center front features my Marie Webster Sunflower quilt and The Real Trip Around the World with 54 different fabrics. Great way to lower the stash!

A Scottish Ceilidh Pillow

Img_3277

How fun, a pattern from my own book, Easy Does It Quilts, for the Scottish Ceilidh. A festival of song and merriment to benefit Historic Flat Rock, Inc. I dug into my Scottish tartans from Glasgow, made a Grid Grip pattern and the rest is history.

Patching together tartan samples into 4 twenty inch squares enabled me to place hand dyed wool thistles on each block. With silk/wool embroidery thread a simple blanket stitch highlights each applique thistle.

The end result: a nice size thistle pillow. Hope it does well in the auction for Flat Rock on July 23rd, 2011

The back. Used just a zipper to hold it together.
