Oh what fun it was! I do love this show. It is on my dream list to be an instructor here one day. I would love to share Folk Art Fusion with friends at this show. I have been attending it for over 20 years.
This was the 25th anniversary of the show. The theme for the quilt challenge was "A Silver Lining." I love it! Here are some highlights from the show. I'll be sharing more with you every Monday for the next few weeks.
This next piece just touched my heart so very much because Harrington and Hannah are rescue bunnies. This quilt is all about an animal shelter called Nine Lives Animal Shelter.
This quilt just made me smile. I pictured myself riding in a sleigh drawn by these beautiful horses (drinking lots of coffee because it's freezing and I can't handle the cold! ha!)
Although I do not believe in animal fighting, I thought the colors and craftsmanship of this quilt was gorgeous.
Also, Susan is from my home town of New Bern. This is a beautiful quilt.
I must say I did the Happy Bunny Dance when I visited Julie of Auntie Ju's Quilt shop! I went in to introduce myself and tell her I thought my book would be the perfect fit for her shop. Little did I know she already carried it! Ok, so then you add "Auntie" and the fact that she is from my most favorite place ever, Wilmington, NC and I was just about to pop with excitement! Julie vends at most of the big shows and lots of smaller ones. Be sure and visit her and tell her me and the bunnies said hi! She is a super great lady!
One last thing is a HAPPY BIRTHDAY shout out to my mom, Ellen! Her 71st birthday is today! Have a super sparkly day mom! Love you! :)
Well, it's going to be a very busy week around here. In fact, most of my days are just flying by right now. I seem to look up and it's 2:30 in the afternoon and then it's 6:00 p.m.! I hope your days are fun and inspiring.
See you back here on Wednesday.
