Cincinnati International Quilt Festival & Friday Night Sew In Results

I spent last weekend at the International Quilt Festival in Cincinnati.  It was a wonderful show!  I met a wonderful quilt artist, Hiroko Miyama.  The quilt above is a picture of her granddaughter. Her quilt is absolutely amazing! 

Here is another quilt that Hiroko displayed at the quilt show.  I love her little friend at the bottom of the quilt.  Be sure to click on the pictures to see the details of her quilt.  Thank you so much for sharing your quilt with us and letting me share with my blogging friends your wonderful artistic quilts.

My sister is going to be really happy!  If you have been following my blog, the quilt below was sandwiched together on a February Friday Night Sew In.

After a lot of doodling on my sketch pad and talking with my sis, I finally started quilting.

Em will be delighted that I quilted Buddy's name on her quilt.  

I quilted around each of the rectangular areas.  There will be more quilting to do, but I ran out of time.  If you click for a close-up, you will see that I quilted the words: bark, wolf, and howl on the sides.  It sure is fun to take an evening and escape into my sewing room to do something fun!

If you love decorated eggs, please stop by Diane Gaudynski's Blog.  A while back Diane had posted a picture of a beautiful decorated egg and I emailed her some pictures of my cousin's eggs.  Carolyn and Diane have been in contact and Carolyn has generously let Diane post her beautiful eggs.  Diane is a free motion quilt teacher and author.  I love her free motion feathers!

Happy Quilting

I didn't notice the barking and howling until I enlarged the photo of Buddy's quilt. Too funny...and very creative!
