Quilt show

The Mid Atlantic Quilt Fest is not until the end of February, and I'm already getting excited. A friend  ( that loves quilting and fabric as much as I do) decided we are going to take a class this time. It will be our third year going. Last year, we both bought long arm machines, AND we LOVE them!!! We looked over the classes and did the online we have to wait to see if we are in the class.
Now to get to work on the project I am working on.

Front of tablerunner made using the Cotton Theory method of quilt as you go. It was fun. I had to adjust the size to fit the snowmen.

Back of tablerunner... I love the cardinals...they do not show up very well in the picture.

At least, I have it ready to put on the table in about a month!!! Christmas is fast approaching!!!

Our retreat was this past hair looks like I stayed up too long!!! We were learning the Cotton Theory method of quilting as you go....I did get three sections done.  The decorative stitches look neat on the back. I hope to keep working on it until I finish it. We had fun sewing, shopping ( didn't miss any fabric shops), eating and a little sleep!
