I thoroughly enjoyed the show. Lots of beautiful work on display and lots of vendors selling beautiful fabric. I was going to be strong and not buy anything except thread (I love Superior Omni for machine quilting and I knew they would have a booth), but I ended up bringing a large bag of hand dyed solids home. So much for my strong resolve!

I've had a furiously busy week. I started by quilting 5 small pieces and one large one. The small ones are two (2) 12" x 12" schist quilts, one KAWS challenge piece for our SAQA group and Tuning Fork #34 and Tuning Fork #35. Tuning Fork # 35 is on the bottom right. I made it to donate to the SAQA Spotlight auction. It's very small (6" x 8") and will be matted, hence the rigged up matting over the top of it. I wanted to see what it would look like matted.

Last weekend, I attended the bi-monthly meeting of the North Texas SAQA group. A number of us had finished our KAWS challenge pieces. You may remember that the SAQA group toured the KAWS exhibit at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and were very inspired by his poppy, graffiti-esque work.
After all of that quilting, I felt the need to piece. Here is a tease:I'm linking this post to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday, Friday Fabric Frenzy, Confessions of a Fiber Addict and Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it up Friday. Go see all the wonderful work there!
