BOM's Away Monday - 4 Mar 2012 & FNQG Quilt Show

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-yBA0dP9XZiY/TdlBWrZfbOI/AAAAAAAAAcM/mjC0IDWrqZY/s1600/BOM+Button.jpg

Welcome to my Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays! 
(We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately.)

Well, this is all that got done this week, rather than getting Amaretto Cottage all finished and taken off the BOM list. (This week's linky is at the bottom of this post. Oops - I fixed the link-up so it's live now.)  :D

Third corner is mostly constructed, but can't work on sewing until tomorrow.

The reason for little progress is that I had 2 demos to do at our guild's quilt retreat, as well as working in the Flying Needles 2012 quilt show. Ate up all my non-masters time. 

This was my very first show to have quilts in, so that was exciting! 

Me with my "Sailing with the Flying Needles"
designed and pieced by Lynette Caulkins, quilted by Patty Butcher

"Around the World with Mr. Hernandez"
pieced and quilted by Lynette Caulkins

"2010 FNQG BOM Quilt of Seasons"
pieced by Lynette Caulkins, quilted by Patty Butcher

It was a ton of fun to see people stop and enjoy my quilts. The big surprise to me was that the owl quilt was  particularly enticing to the men. Almost every one would stop and call out "look at this, honey!" 

"What a Hoot, Heather!"
pieced by Lynette Caulkins, quilted by Patty Butcher

Who would've thought??

Here are some of my favorites:


Melanie Nettles' incredible butterfly wallhanging. (This is about a fourth of it) 

Ruth Johnson's "Day at the Beach"
Anita Stephens's Garden 3-D applique


Isn't that incredible?



Sue Donavin's "Oriental Sunrise" 

Jan Bailey's "Phoenix"


"Secret Garden" by Susan Williams
I was entranced by her cathedral work. Everything hand-done.

"Serengeti Sunset" by Joyce Cobb

She had a lot of fun with her quilting. :)

Sew Many Spools by Kim Colpitt  (spun by Blogger)

"Sewing Friends Quilt" by Janet Kinner

Fun shirring in that embroidered inner border

"Sunny Summer Day" by Jenny Davidson

"Window Gazing" by Barbara Fyffe

a wonderful bargello by Jan Bailie, quilted by Patty Butcher
(and another Blogger spin-out)

"My House or Yours" by Betty Davey

"Rainbow Chains" by Donna Rhodes

"Shadows in the Swamp" by Karen Hansen -
she had marvelous free-motion quilting with a hawk and other hidden 
goodies that you discovered the longer you stood there.
And a super-cool hubby who waited by Betty Davey's "Greenpiece"
before we helped with the take-down.

Well, men can be the strangest things sometimes - you never can guess what is going to catch their eyes. WOW - what a lot of work is going into your Amaretto quilt - it is going to be simply gorgeous, and I can't believe you haven't had your things in a show before!

So neat to see your quilts up! I love the one with the Mariner's Star(?) and the boats. Anita's 3D applique is an amazing one too! Thanks for sharing these.

Thanks for the quilt show. I wanted to come down for it but time got in the way. I did see some of them in DeFuniak last week and will be going to Pensacola in a couple of weeks. Would have loved to have seen your owls in person.
