Having Fun in Madison, Alabama

Last Thursday, I drove to Madison, AL to share my trunk show and lecture with the Madison Station Quilters.  What a talented group of ladies!  Their "show and share" was fabulous.  And this is their raffle quilt (forgot to get the name of this quilt).  It is absolutely gorgeous and even more so in person.  It will go to some lucky winner next month.
The colors, fabrics, applique and quilting are wonderful.  Someone is going to be VERY happy next month.
 
My sister was able to go with me and we had so much fun just getting away.  She snapped a few pictures during the program.  The lighting was not the best for getting pictures, but we had a great time.
Not sure what I was saying here LOL - I can get kind of chatty :).
There were about 55 members there, I think a really good turnout.  She took a few pictures from where she was sitting.
After the meeting, I was showing these girls something, I think I was looking for the kitty.
And then before I knew it,
it was time to pack up.  Thanks MSQ so much for inviting me, I hope our paths cross again.
And now a little drumroll please............... the Pickle Dish blocks are done!!  I've started sewing the rows together.  There were a few times I wasn't sure this point would ever come.
Happy Stitching,
Karen

How nice that your sister was able to go along to Madison! You are getting famous now and starting to travel farther afield. Love the pickle dish quilt.

Our guild was very excited to have your and your sister could up for a quick visit. Your enthusiasm for quilting is contagious! Already, I've heard comments from our members about how much they enjoyed your trunk show and lecture.
Our guild's For the Birds quilt was a guild effort. We made kits for the log cabin blocks and made the outer logs a little extra wide. Then we could trim them all to size and they were easy to join.
Your pickle dish blocks look great. I like the dark gray on the outside and the pink in the middle :)

The Guild quilt is great, love the batiks and design.
Your pickledish looks GREAT!!!!!!!!!
I love the scappy corners, I am glad you didn't rip out all the different shades of the gray fabrics.

How great for you to get the chance to share your quilts and speak in front of so many women! I know you gave a wonderful program - it would have been great to be there with you and hear what you had to say. But I'm so glad for you that your sister went along, and that the two of you can share quilting. My sis doesn't care about what I do, so we never spend time together. I'm envious of your relationship. Keep up the beautiful work you do. That Pickle Dish quilt is going to be a show-stopper, and an award-winner too, I bet!
