MidAtlantic Quilt Festival 2017

Today I spent the day at the MidAtlantic Quilt Festival. This paint splattered cat fabric was my favorite find. It's by Timeless Treasures and is named Cat.

I also found this bat fabric (Happy Haunting by Beth Logan for Alvyn.) I bought it to celebrate the bat that was loose in the house over the Christmas Holidays.

And speaking of eating bats, here's Buddy a year ago. Here he has settled in after his failed adoption at the local shelter, but just a few days before his successful adoption by Molly.

And last but not least, here is a Dear Jane quilt that was in today's show. It was made by a new quilter from Portland, Oregon (Christine Jiun Yi). The use of colors are quite amazing given the low contrast fabrics.

  3. I hit something wrong - I love the cat fabric and would have gotten the bats for a friend who studies them. The Jane is just stunning!

  5. All cat fabric is good (because cats!), but that cat fabric is the BEST! I hope Molly leaves some for you.

  8. This must be the cat fabric you were telling me about. You're right -- it does look like one of my paintings with cats overlaid on top of it. I wonder if I could do that to my paintings?!! It looks pretty cool. Gorgeous!
