Almost back from Sisters

Here's what I've been doing. I expected more people than were there--of course we did arrive on Saturday about 6:30. We got to see the quilts being put up, we got to enjoy the wonderful cool weather--and by the time we left there were many more people.
One of the many quilts pictures I took. This was a series done by a local quilt guild--I liked them a lot.
And here is what I did. I took a paper piecing class with my sister--but I hate paper piecing so I figured out how to piece the quilt using strips of fabric. We called it the quilt that never ends. There are lots and lots of seams in each block--but I think it came out looking good. The original paper piecing blocks were 5 inches finished--these are 9--so I made a top instead of a wall hanging and I added a couple of rows to make it rectangular instead of square.

More when I get home. I'm flying home tonight and will arrive in Colorado just about midnight.

What an awesome experience! And I hope you had a wonderful time. Love your spiderweb quilt. Those stripes are great. Leave it to you to figure another method. Congrats.
