Sheila,

This  quilt is called peperment candyt, and it is all pinwheel blocks   Found it in the CNOV/DEC issue of Quiltmaker.  Which was delivered to my house when we were in Arizona.  It is alternating red and light pinwheel  blocks.

Ladies, I tried to freshen up our slide show by swapping out some older pictures for some of our newer projects.  Please remember (and also for those new members) that when you add a picture to your page to tag it   ohio (all lower case) so that I can snag it for our Ohio Quilters page.  We love to see your new stuff.  Thanks!

Darn it! I don't have my newsletter any longer but, Marti Mitchell is going to be over in amish country in May. I know you can get tickets from Paw Patch in Mt Vernon but, darned if I can remember where she's going to be. I would have liked to have gone but... I think it's $20 per person. The kaleidoscope I did in the pinks with big flowers is one of her designs and I would have loved to show it to her. ~sigh~

Sherri, one of these days I'm going to do a red & white churn dash. I saw one recently with pinwheel blocks as the center and it was awesome. I saw your lovely pinwheels and it triggered my brain. LOL!

Carol, of course we're old friends!

Beautiful and very striking!

OOPS  should have chosen a better example for the top red block.  The points do not match up well on that one.  But I generally do not worry about that, unless they are really off.  I figure there are so many in the top that I will probably be the only one to notice some of those imperfections.

Here are the red and white blocks I am making from all those lovely fq's I received in the birthday exchange.  Started out making this to be a lap sized quilt....but then decided I might like it queen sized. But reality finally took over and I have settled on a twin sized.  Still had to buy some whites, because didn't have enough in my stash to make all the blocks.  I am about halfway there with the blocks needed for a twin sized quilt.  I don't have any twin beds, so it will probably go into my granddaughter stash.

Yes, Bonnie's quilts are really amazing in person, she did a trunk show with her presentation on Tuesday evening. Wow!

Comment by Frances Darlene Contadino yesterday

Yes, I was inspired to try and organize my scraps. Her process makes lots of sense and she says it is one reason she accomplishes so much, because her fabrics are there ready to go.

It was at General Butler State Park Lodge. Apparently they (the local extension offices and UK)have had this sewing expos for over 12 years.

Sounds like you had a wonderful time, Frances.  And all the quilts in your picture are gorgeous! 

Comment by Sherri Eley yesterday

Frances,

I used to travel to Carrollton, when I was working with the state health department.  It is such a small town, that I cannot even imagine a sewing expo there that would being in Bonnie HUnter.  But that is great.  I use quite a few of her tips and techniques in my sewing room.  and if she ever gets to my side of the state, I would love to be in one of her workshops.  I just imagine in my mind,  all these women showing up with boxes and garbage bags full of scraps to work on something with her.  

I am trying to organize my scraps that are too small to fold and are just stuffed into a cardboard box.  Cutting  them into useable sized pieces and storing them.  But it seems like I barely make a dent in the pile after working all day on them.  But that's ok, because we are addicted to fabric and just playing with it all day is a delight.
