Capitol of Texas QuiltFest – Fiesta!

13 Sep

Rockin’ G Quilts had a great time at the quilt show! La Feria de Colores won a Judges Choice award and our other entry, Steppin’ Out, was purchased by a woman as a gift for her daughter! I think a celebration is in order!
Tomorrow, Mark, Lani and I will go and take one last stroll among the quilts before quilt pick-up time. Then, Steppin’ Out will go home with a new family and I will bring La Feria back to send to Maria & Jimmy.
All is good and I am happy!
Dawn 😄


Quips from the Q

3 Aug

Well we had a pretty good weekend in the Q. Saturday I did a bit of quilting on my current project and then we went to the Harry Ransom Center in Austin to view an exhibition of the 1st World War. It was very interesting and they had lots of everyday items that the soldiers would carry.
So about my current quilting project. I have named it Foxy Frolics. It will ultimately be residing in my daughter’s guest bedroom and is designed to coordinate with the curtains I already made for the room. However, I also am planning to enter it in the 2015 QuiltCon show.

I am trying a new quilting technique on this one. Rockin’ G Quilts has a Nolting Fun Quilter, Nellie, that I love! Nellie is a hard worker and completely dependable. But straight line quilting, with a ruler, is a new challenge for me. It is no problem for Nellie, but there is a learning curve for me. 😁
However, I have passed the midpoint, so it should be easy going from now on!
I think I see a light at the end of the tunnel…hope it isn’t a train!

New Braunfels Quilt Fest 2014

26 Jul
Water Dance

Water Dance

My Water Dance quilt won a 2nd Place ribbon at the New Braunfels Quilt Fest! 

Mark and I took a leisurely drive through the Texas Hill Country to get to New Braunfels.  The drive was beautiful and we were met with a very pleasant surprise when we checked in at the Quilt Fest!

My name was on the list of winners!  Woohoo!  I really loved making this quilt.  It was a lot of work but well worth the effort.  When I pick it up on Sunday, I will prepare Water Dance for a trip to it’s “forever home” in beautiful San Francisco!  I will be sorry to see it go, but am so happy to know that it will be lovingly cared for and enjoyed. 

Well, back to work!  So many quilts…so little time!  🙂
