Sewing Room Friday, 4/5/24

Does this apply to any of you?
Last week, Alex Anderson did a recap of the quilters who will have episodes in the upcoming months. She mentioned me in Part 1, as I filmed during the first half of the week. But then I noticed this in the newsletter for Part 2--a photo of my quilt from QuiltCon a few years back. She thought it was ra eally funny story that I liked the back of the quilt better than the front, so I submitted the back. And it was accepted! I've submitted a couple of other quilts to QuiltCon in recent years. None have been accepted. Maybe I should try submitting a quilt back again. Haha.

I'm trying to be open to new experiences, rather than staying at home all the time. And any time it involves any kind of public speaking, it is a very courageous act for me. :) 

Last night, some of my quilts were part of our local Art Hop, a monthly display of art in different venues downtown. My quilts were displayed in a beautiful old home that has been converted to offices.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by. I'm really glad I had this opportunity and hopefully will again in the future. Also there last night was a sourdough baker, @dust_bowl_bread_and_goods. She made sourdough pop tarts--SO good!
In another Art Hop venue, Gabe had some artwork. I really love that the school district encourages art and then offers an opportunity to display them to the public.

This is so true.

For the last month on Instagram, @amyscreativeside has been running something she calls IG Quilt Fest. There is a different prompt each day. I never seem to post for all 31 days, but one prompt toward the end of the month is "must make quilt." Nedra Sorensen made my day when she posted this, so thanks so much Nedra. :)

Also true.

I think we can all agree this is really great quilt inspiration. Makes me wonder who designed the poster.

I have already collected some fabric from my stash.

I'm hoping to do a lot of sewing this weekend. What about you?

Your quilts were beautifully displayed at the Art Hop!! And that trolley park social poster was clearly designed by a quilter, ha. I look forward to seeing what you make based on it.

Wonderful to have your quilts displayed in the Art Hop and for Gabe to have his art work displayed as well. Ah, yes. I think I belong to the Mafia!! We are partying this weekend. A whole bunch of family birthdays this past week!
