More on the Sauder's Quilt Show & Microwave Fire Alert!

At the quilt dinner I met my sister's friend, Jean
Jean loves feathers like I do.  Just look at her beautiful wall hanging!
Jean, you have inspired me to try making my own feathers in fabric.
Check out the new technique of adding beads.  I'm not sure that I would have been brave enough to cut my wall hanging apart, but the Jean's results are amazing!
Congratulations Jean!
You are a true artist and I would love to take a class from you!

 Another quilt artist, speaker, teacher, and author is Karen Kay Buckley

 She did a talk on her quilts and we had the opportunity to see her applique quilts in person.
These quilts make you absolutely speechless.
I bought her book called "Earthly Delights"
If you are a beginner or advanced quilter, this is a perfect book to have in your quilt library.

I just love all the details that Karen puts into her quilts.

Thank you Karen for sharing your talent with us!

 Here is another winner!

My friend, Linda, made this donation quilt.  It won't be at any quilt shows, but it will be loved and slept under by some sweet child that needs some love and warmth.
Any quilt made in love of another person is always a winner!

I want to alert people to please stay in the same room when your microwave is running.  One evening my husband, Dean, was served "a flaming baked" potato!  Actually, I had left the room for 5 to 10 minutes and had the potato on auto cook.  I was only in the next room.  We were very blessed because the damage was only to the microwave and the potato.  It was a little smoky, but everything aired out quickly.  There's a new microwave in our kitchen and I certainly don't leave the room!  

Happy Quilting & Safe Microwaving!

Kay Lynne
