ALL the quilts in the show were works of art and a labor of love.
ALL the participants were winners in my eyes!
I applaud your patience and talent.

The little train that could!

This covered bridge quilt was just amazing!

A partridge in a pear tree!

Today's special is catfish!

Lily pads and coy fish pond reminds me of Hawaii!

I wonder how long it took this quilter to hand quilt this amazing quilt?

Barn party!

It's a small world!

Love the purple with the mixed media!

The early bird catches the worm!

Birds of a feather!

Mixed media with beads!

Van Gogh Black and white quilt!

Elvis may have left the building but I think he may be hanging out at your local coffee house!

  10. Hi Joyce! Oh, what lovely quilts! I love the one with the little red birds! Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,

  11. What beautiful quilts. So much time and love go into making a quilt.

  12. Oh the beauty and the talent! It is overwhelming that people can make such wonderful quilts. I have made just one quilt..I took a class and chose my material (it was held in a material store) and began to make my family heirloom. Yes, well, by the time I had finished...I had GREAT respect for those that quilt and most especially those that quilt WELL as in the pictures you have posted! Simply amazing!!
    I was cured from that day on. I never made another quilt but I cherish the one I have made..and when I am gone, I know my family will continue to talk about me and what I went through making that ONE quilt! :):)

  13. Those quilts are such works of art. My maternal grandmother quilted and these remind me of her.

    By the way, you asked about my fireplace paint. Here's a link to the brand we used. I used Clay Tan.

  14. How did I miss the Elvis quilt???

  15. I love the quilts. My favorites are the black and white, the catfish, and the covered bridge. Thanks for sharing. Oh! and Lady Liberty too!!

All your recipes look so yummy and remind me of my family of cooks. My father's side is Portuguese, so very similar to your Italian family customs. Big family...lots of food. We're not far from your New York family..I'm in Rhode Island.
