We are beginning to finalize details of classes being offered at our Quilt Show.  One of them is the Grab and Go Bag.  It is pictured below and on our quilt show page... or if you're in Moab, stop by It's Sew Moab to see the sample.

               We have been meeting monthly to discuss our upcoming Quilting in the Red Rocks Quilt Show the second weekend of March, 2013.  All of a sudden that date is not looking so far away.  This will be our 7th biennial quilt show, which means we've been doing this for 14 years!  It is a beautiful show that many locals and visitors from out of town enjoy.  Please note that we have a page dedicated to information about it.  We will update that page as more details come into focus.

I was searching for free quilt patterns and came across this great website! You can go into their pattern playground and change the block sizes, colors, etc., then print out the pattern. I thought it would be a good one to add to the blog.
The link is now on the side of our blog / Our Favorite Websites... Interactive Quilt Patterns

It's time for me to get my FMQ challenge done by midnight tonight!  So what am I doing?  Well, I'm trying to learn how to add badges to our blog.  I have added the Sketchbook Challenge badge which really has nothing to do with quilting per se, but it does have to do with design.  Really I added it because it gave me explicit directions on how to add it.  Still figuring out the others!

The blog continues to be developed.  On the show and tell page we now have posted the pictures from our May 8th meeting.  Minutes are posted on the minutes page.  My concern is that the pages just keep growing instead of being archived.  Oh well, it's a work in progress.

The basket for Quilt Fest is now finished.  I forgot to take a picture of it to post. Will try to get one before it goes to Quilt Fest.

Highlights From HMQS!
Judy and Peggy enjoyed their own little quilting bee in bed, finishing the binding on the Trip Around the World Charity Quilt.  Judy broke out her new needle threader and eventually figured out how to work it!  In the other bed, Lou was getting her beauty rest oblivious to our giggles!  Peggy had previously shown her newest hot product.  She won a bottle of Blue Line remover and was anxious to remove the blue lines from her practice piece.  She kept spraying and spraying until she finally realized the quilting was done with blue thread!  Too funny!
Some of us attended a trunk show by Jill Finley.  Her family had done a Medallion Quilt Round Robin.  The quilts were amazing.   Sandy Davey photographed them and would love to interest some of us in doing our own medallion round robin.  We will share more about that at our meeting.
Our 43 Quilts were admired by many.  I caught lots of people looking, and taking pictures.  Congratulations to Marian Eason who got a “Teacher’s Choice” ribbon on her self portrait “Bird Brain.”
Lou and Murine took so many classes that they had a hard time getting to the vendor mall to spend money!  Lou says she won’t do that again!
