Sunday morning didn’t actually dawn until I was on the road to MQX. The sunrise heading east was beautiful. Bright and pink and playful behind the clouds and landscape of eastern Westchester County.
I first saw the quilts of my friend Angela’s kids. They each entered a quilt and went home with ribbons. I’m asking Angela’s permission before posting the quilts on the blog. Each of the kids quilted on Angela’s long arm.
Then I saw “Twilight in the Bronx”. I knew earlier in the week that I’d not won a ribbon, what I didn’t know until Saturday is that Linda V Taylor awarded it a teachers ribbon. Thank you Linda! It was quite a delight.
Before I show the next quilt I must tell you that the first booth when walking in the door was the Superior Threads booth. Yes! I’ll show you the thread I purchased in a day or two. I got a cone of one color to finish some major pebbling and swirling feathering on a quilt that is due shortly.
Sally Bramald of Feather on a Wire entered this delightful quilt of an elongated feather and incredible pebbling.
Sally pebbled and pebbled and pebbled! One quilter nearby when I stopped to get this pic described the feather as a python, which I thought apropos as Sally is from the UK, though I don’t know if she’s a Monty Python fan. Hmm, I’ll have to ask her that sometime soon.
It’s titled “Love Abides” and shows a dad holding his little one.
A sweet quilt from a sweet (photo) memory.
