|Starring the Waterlilies|
It has been a week. Busy, busy, busy. It is quilt show week, and quilt week means lots to do. I will skip the beginning of the week, and go to today. Kathy, picked me up this morning about noon. We went to Jason's. For those of you who don't live near a Jason's, oh what you are missing. It is a deli and the food is oh so good. There was six of us for lunch. After lunch five us went to the quilt show and the other gal went to work (she went to the show in the morning). As we walked in, I had a quilt hanging just as you enter. It is ever so exciting to win a ribbon. I was blessed this quilt won three ribbons. As you can see a blue (1st place) and 2 golds (2 judges choice).
The show was held at the Lake Charles Civic Center. They had several vendors there selling mostly quilting supplies. It is always fun to shop. I did keep myself under control and except for a few pieces of batik only bought what I needed, really needed.

Thank you Connie for taking these pictures.
What's in a Name..........
|Logs on the Square|
Logs on the Square is my own design and it was named when I was going through brochures for log cabins. I wanted to name it something to do with a log cabin without saying log cabin. In one of the brochures there was a cabin named with something on the square. Ah, ha, light bulb goes on - Logs on the Square.
It took me a long time to come up with Pina Coladas and again this quilt was my design. I thought about the fact that the blocks were pineapple blocks. There is birds and flowers in trees. Think, think, think.....I needed a fancier word for pineapple, so thus, Pina Coladas Under the Flowering Trees.
Hope you all had a great day............
