Out on the Town

As mentioned, I was out to see the quilt exhibit of my friend Mary Keasler and others at the Museum at Five Points in Cleveland TN. Wonderful museum!
It was such a stormy, rainy day, but for quilting...I am willing to travel. Cleveland is a mere 80+ something miles from me, but easy to get to on the interstate.  Here's a Jim Dandy number from Mary. We discussed the Gee's Bend influence. Way kool! Note the gazillion tiny circles in the quilting. Holy Sewing Machine, Batman!


And here's my favorite of the bunch, the big Orange Hibiscus.
Then we went to a nice restaurant across the road and had deeeelicious seafood. But get a load of this ladies' room sink! And iridescent glass tiles.. O my!
  I snapped a picture of the fish artwork at the restaurant and there's Mary looking at it. I think this could make a nice quilt idea...yes? I have a soft spot for fish.

On my way home I made a quick detour to Joann Fabrics, in search of a new shorter (5") set of double pointed needles, which they did not have. Instead, I had to take advantage of the sale on 100%  Classic Cotton solids. I got a half yard of everything I liked, and left the blah stuff on the shelf. A half yard was $1.75. Unbelieveable.

It's not like I needed any more...but I can use this stuff up easier, because I didn't have to dye it myself. That's my excuse and I am stickin' to it.

  1. Oh no, those last two sentences are quite 'alarming'. You buying fabrics so you do not have to use your good handdyed stuff. Be carefull, this is how a serious stash hoarding problem might begin (wink).

  6. Thank you for sharing the quilt show with us.

  7. Love the fact that there were medium-large quilts in abundance. So many art quilt exhibits seem to have only journal size pieces.
