05 16 2011 Week in Review

I finished the last block from Patchwork Squared's QAL. I am impressed they had the last block done before Quilt Market.
The technique for this block was unusual and I encourage you to read their blog and find out how it was done.

My plan is to arrange the blocks in combination with these prints and the quilt will be called Cats Meow. Dedicated to all the fur balls that have graced our home over the years. I won't be working on it for a couple of weeks because I must finish my wonky blocks and demonstration for quilt group next Tuesday and then get the following quilt quilted.

The big news this last week was (drum roll please) Quilt Market was in Salt Lake City! I was able to bring along some members of the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild to act as consultants regarding modern fabrics and styles. (I made them pay their own way how cheap is that.) We had an amazing time.

No one does is better than Robert Kaufman.

Whitewashed Window Panes by Meg Hawkey
After looking at hundreds of quilts, quilt patterns and printed fabric I found the simplicity of these two quilts refreshing.

Tomorrow I will review the evening's entertainment, purchases and swag.
