Some Etowah Valley Show & Share!

Shhhh!  The girls are still sleeping!

I first met up with Randy, and we ran errands – picking up groceries and grabbing a chai tea latte at Panera before heading over to pick up Lori’s when her flight came in.

I had them BOTH in my newly washed Shamu by 7pm and we were OFF!

We drove part way, and stopped for Mexican food with lots of chatter, laughter and all manner of catching up before we hit the road again, finally arriving at Quilt Villa by 10pm.

They are still tucked in, sleeping and adjusting to Eastern time zones so I thought I’d post the show & share quilts from Friday’s class to give them a bit more sleep.

I’m tempted to fire up the sewing machine and getting humming – but I think I can wait a bit longer!

I just stepped out onto the front porch, and this is our mountain view this morning.  Wispy low clouds with a touch of pink.

Today should be our best weather day, so we’ll have to make the most of it!

Randy and I waiting for Lori’s flight!

((Nothing like Cheesy Selfies trying to contain our excitement!))


Texas Tumbleweeds from MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders!

I was last here with the Etowah Valley Quilt Guild about 2 years ago, and SO MANY quilts came to show and share!  Texas Tumbleweeds was our workshop, and they turned out SO GREAT!




Another with borders!


Bordered, Quilted & Bound!


In shades of blue!


Lap Size!


And table toppers too!


Green and Turquoise!


Aren’t they ALL wonderful??

This is the most rewarding part for me.  When I get to see what YOU have done with your fabric and time.  There are many more quilts to share besides the completed Texas Tumbleweeds.

I wonder if I start breakfast that yummy smells might bring my two friends gently out of their dreams and ready to face this wonderful day?

Wherever you are, and whatever you do ----make it THE BEST!
