the last Quilt MN 2013 project and some Sunshine

i was looking at the calendar for this fall…because i am going to be adding an events tab…and realize that we have a crazy few months lined up!  This weekend is the Headwaters Quilt Show in Bemidji and from there it is something going on every other weekend…whether it is a meeting to vote on 2014 (yes…crazy) Quilt MN fabrics, a Paynesville event or a Quilt Show…we won’t relax until about january!  Be sure to check the events tab in the next few days.

first up…the Sunshine though the quilt isn’t yellow…so be prepared.

mom finished up Faded Sunshine last night.  this quilt is so romanical (a mix of romantic and magical).  this rendition of Faded Sunshine uses Memories of Love by Maywood (**we are so in love with Maywood florals…so shabby, romantic, and sweetwater-esque.)  it doen’t have binding but a little tucked pink houndstooth…so soft and sweet1
