You need to pop over to my friend Tonia's blog (BaaRamEwe) and see the great hooked rug project she just made - an insert for a step stool that her hubby built. I haven't seen it in person yet - she leaves tomorrow to attend and be a vendor at the Denver Hook-In on Saturday and I'm sure she'll have some available for purchase there.
Last night my quilt group drove up the canyon to eat dinner together at a nice restaurant. They're famous for the peacocks that wander around the property - when we drove up, this guy was showing off his full splendor for us in the parking lot! The weather wasn't nice enough to eat on the patio, but the food was good as always - and we enjoyed visiting.
I saw a handful of wool quilts at the HMQS I attended in SLC last Thursday - thought I'd share them with you. I've never made a wool quilt - seems like it would be kinda bulky to work on although these were cotton with wool applique - I guess that wouldn't be so bad.
And this was a vintage quilt in the show that was over 100 years old - looked brand new! I love the vertical rows and the colors and the design itself. All the seams were set in - very labor intensive - and if I remember right it was hand stitched. It looked very contemporary.
