Boston? Oh no

Well I found my way to the big city of Boston. So many reasons to come here but the main one was to meet  family members we have never an. Like or new grandson, Parker. Little Parker  is now three weeks old. Photo is of the little guy  on his quilt. I made for him. The blocks were made for the oldest grand child who is now14. Well obviously it never got  When we got the news of Parker coming I dug the blocks out and put it together.  Doesn't he look little?
Well we had a bit of down  time so I had to look up a quilt shop. And I found it! OMG here is little ole me,driving from one place in Waltham to Cambridge. So I want to say Monique and Manya were so great. Friendly friendly friendly.  Fabric selection was great. I didn't check out books patterns rulers and such. Just stroked fabric   I could have spent the day there but had the Hubster with me. I'm surprised he did so well. To all those that live in this area you are lucky to have such a great shop.
My loot 9 fat quarters. Got a plan but you will have to wait to see it.

Parker's quilt

We just got our 4th grandchild. Parker! And this is his quilt. The Hubster and I are going out to meet him later this week, so I have to get this done and packed by WED night. I have had these blocks for 7 or more years and this was just a great time to use them. Parker lives in the Boston area and oh so far away. This quilt is meant to be used. I hope it is liked.

AQS Quilt Show Grand Rapids, MI

Took a bus trip with 50 of my fellow quilters to the AQS Quilt Show yesterday. Hadn't been to a large show in quite awhile, sometime ago I found out large busy shows weren't my thing. Love the show and vendor specials are great but with claustrophobia crowds can be a problem. I tried it again this time knowing my problem I stayed away from the crowded areas. I made it with no problems. So with that I want to say NONE OF THESE ARE MINE AND I MAKE NO CLAIM TO THESE. I JUST WANT TO SHARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITES.

Time keeps slipping,slipping into the future

No matter how hard I try it seems I can't find my way here. It is the time of year for my local quilt shows and with being in two clubs I'm pretty busy. So quick post. Here's a quilt by Rose. Not much to say but wow, what a beauty.
