Inspiration from Quilts across the Country!

Seeing we do over 30 quilt shows a year, I am privileged to see a wide range of amazing work. I thought I would pull from my 'picture' stash and show you all some of the fine work I have seen, in hopes to maybe open up your own imagination.
So here goes:
I always feel so humbled and yet so blessed when I walk into a show and see that someone has made a quilt off one of my patterns. This was a Meet Me In Paris quilt (shown above), shown in Bakersfield California.
So that is all for today. I am off to the sewing studio. I paid my youngest daughter and her friend to help me reorganize it a few days ago, but there is still a lot of work I myself have to do. Yesterday I cut out some balloon shades for the windows. Did you all know I used to be an interior designer? That's how I put food on the table when I was left to raise 4 little ones by myself. So yes, I started out making curtains and draperies, but eventually hired a workroom to do all of my sewing so I could get out there and sell. It has been years,since I've taken on a 'drapery' project!
Happy Sewing to you all!
