Still at the quilt show and fishing..................

 More cute quilts from the Rapid  City quilt show.
 It looks like this was a challenge in their guild. I'd say they met that challenge with no problems!

 This one was different and alot of work I think.
 I love a good applique quilt.
 From flowers to cross word puzzle quilts they had it all.

 A good way to do a family quilt.

  A racing car quilt a fun boys quilt.
 This was my favorite I might have to find the pattern
 Another book quilt, I'd like to make one someday.

 We went fishing the other night well Greg and the grandsons I just took pictures and walked cus I don't touch worms or fish:)
 Limber necks

 Still more quilts plus a few other things coming up.................JMF

More of the quilt show trip.............

 Paula bought this pattern and it was our goal to figure it  out and make a couple. Well after lots of reading and looking at pictures I said there has to be a YouTube tutorial on it!!
 That's how we finally figured it out then it was easy:) I don't know what I did but it's alittle crooked.
 This is my first attempt at painting. With a little help from the instructor it didn't turn out to bad:)
 I have to admit the instructor painted the heart for me. We had fun and am glad I tried something new:)
 And then they were finished!! At least Paula's were. I did get one of mine finished out there and one at home.
 The purple one is my favorite.
 Now the quilt show. I didn't take pics of any of the labels just the quilts.
 I want to make some kind of book quilt someday.
 a dog:)

 This chair is not something I would want in my house...but it was something to see!! There were blocks on the sides of the chair too.
 This is a tablecloth the squares were pretty small and it was so cute.
 I loved this one.
 There were lots of applique quilts.
 Cute chicken quilt with chicken wire quilting:)
Cute bunny quilt...............................JMF

Quilt show trip.............

 Our first stop on our trip was the quilt shop in Chamberlain.

 We had a hard time just getting past the door!
 She has lots of die cuts ready for your quilts.

 These must be for the husbands that tag along with their wives:)
 Fabric heaven! The shop is towards the end of their main street on the right hand side.

 Lots of western fabric my favorite.

I loved this pink.
 She has supplies for bead and jewelry making and ready made too.
 The 2 buffalo die cuts I bought.
 Sitting out on Paula and Gary' deck that evening and this blue bird came to visit.

 I see why they love it out there it's so relaxing.
Plenty of deer visit too..................more to come.................JMF
