Our Haymarket Museum Quilt Show

Our local quilt guild chapter, Haymarket Quilters Unlimited, has a little quilt show going on this month.

We have a wonderful committee of girls who collected the quilts and set up the displays and manned the weekend hours.

The quilt show name is "Quilting Colorful Seasons of Love".

So the committee collected quilted items for each season and holiday.

The Haymarket Museum is right downtown and was originally a very small clapboard church.

And when I say small...I am not kidding. 

When our local wonderful quilt shop, Oh Sew Persnickety,  got in the new Tula Pink fabric collection, Slow and Steady, I fell in love!!

So, I just had to make it up in a quilt!!

I love, love, love the cheddary orange print, so I used it for the background.

It's a simple design made of traditional blocks by May Chappell called "Squiggly Bits".

It was a fun and easy quilt to piece!      

Just a few new pix of my adorable grandson, Neal!!

He is so very precious...

and so very, very  loved!!

Yogi has met Neal, but with his almost total loss of hearing and limited vision, he wasn't too interested until Neal started crying loudly.  Then Yogi started looking around, as he can not tell anymore where loud noises are coming from. :-(

Now that Halloween is over, the holidays always seem to rush up on us!!  Are you madly sewing up gifts by now?  I am!!


  1. Neal is indeed precious! I am in love with that cheddar print to. Happy gift making!

    Sorry to hear that Yogi is having hearing issues but he's an old man now he's allowed to have some problems here and there. My cats turend 12 yo this summer and I can tell they behave 'older' not longer so playful and the sleep even more (and believe a cat knows how to sleep;-)
