Willow Weave is Bound, Labeled, Done


 
One of my goals during the Olympics was to complete Willow Weave, and I finally finished attaching the label last night.  This was a spur of the moment project I did as part of a sew-along in 2013.  I like this quilt and enjoyed the process of making it.  I think I will donate it to a group that sells quilts and uses the proceeds to benefit local charities.

Friday and Saturday were spent working at our local quilt club’s biannual show.  

I picked up these items at the Bits ‘n Pieces booth for about $4.  I love having old quilt magazines at the ranch to browse through before turning out the light at night.  These will probably be returned to the booth in two years for someone else to enjoy.  The pattern is one I’ve seen other quilters post on line.  I also nabbed a Carol Doak book of star blocks.

This reversible apron and reusable Swifter pad came from the Boutique.  I thought about gifting the apron, but I like it so much, that may or may not happen.

We had some great vendors and these cuts of batiks came home with me too.  I love batiks and this photograph does not do justice to the colors.

The event was tremendous fun, but much work remains to be done in the aftermath, so it's probably a good thing we only have shows every other year.
