Quilt Show Coming Up

March 24, 2010,

I am a member of the Quilters' Connection which is a fairly large local quilt group. They have a quilt show coming up on June 4 - 6, 2010. If you are in the Boston area, pencil in the dates and swing by to see many beautiful quilts done by many renowned quilters. Note, my quilt is beautiful, but I am not one of those famous quilters... yet. :)

I have submitted two quilts for showing, depending on space, one of mine will definitely be on display.

For those who would like to support the group, the group is also raffling a beautiful quilt call "Modern Linoleum" which measures 102" x 85". You can see the quilt on the Quilters' Connection website. Raffle tickets are $1. If you are interested, let me know.

Some of you may ask, why the shortage of posts? Well, I have placed quilting on the way side, hidden my sewing machine, stopped buying fabrics, stopped buying quilting or sewing gimmicks because hubby and I recently purchased a dwelling. This dwelling needs minor work, so we are in the process of looking for someone to do the job.

I have heard that construction is on the slow side, but we can't seem to find someone who will do the work. I think we have finally found someone that we would hire, we are just awaiting the estimate to come back.

We are currently still living in our apartment because moving in with construction in the background is going to be hellish and very disruptive. So we've made a decision to stay put where we are until almost everything is done.

The work includes gutting out three bathrooms, removing lally columns in the basement and putting up another support beam to make the basement an open room to fit a pool table.

Fun, fun, fun. Hopefully work will be starting in the next two weeks or so, can't wait to move in.

thank you p00lriah. Pool room was priority. I don't plan to have a quilt room. Since the sewing machine is portable, I can bring it to wherever I want to sew. I usually sew where there is a t.v. So most likely, the quilt "room" will also be the pool room.

I have tagged a closet in the spare bedroom as my fabric closet.

I'm thinking of painting the closet shelves red and inside white. Um...
