It's time to show our patriotic colors today. I pulled out every quilt that I have that is some form of red, white and blue. I took the last stitch on this appliqued basket of flowers that I made with Star Spangled Liberty fabrics by Pam Buda for Marcus Fabrics. I'm going to name this one Huckleberry Hill.
Since I'm between shows, I have all of the quilts home for a visit, so I can put them on display. Here's Buttonwood.
I don't remember the name of this quilt, but is sure is cute!
There's a story behind this quilt and it all happened yesterday at the Alameda County Fair Livestock Auction. We didn't attend the event. I've been sick since Thursday and didn't want to contaminate anyone.
Five minutes before the awards ceremony, my son Kade sent me this picture and wondered it if looked familiar. I don't know who made this quilt, but it looks almost identical to mine. Someone hung it upside down!
Then my daughter-in-law sent me this picture, 4 minutes before the awards were to be presented. Kade and Harleigh jumped up on stage and rehung the quilt in the proper orientation. His mom must be a quilter...wink.
There, all fixed. The texts were going back and forth like crazy. My son and granddaughter did me proud! Now the backdrop for all of the award pictures won't be wonky.
I'm going to take it easy today. I feel like a firecracker exploded in my throat. Yesterday I made a block, took a nap, repeat, made a block, took a nap. Today will most likely be the same schedule.
Maybe I'll post pictures of Kevin Bacon's auction tomorrow. Our granddaughter and DIL are devastated. They said their goodbyes around 5pm, then the processing truck arrived under the cover of darkness. Insert very sad face here.
