I enjoy our annual trip to Santa Clara for the quilt show. We were missing a few friends this year. Pictured is Debbie, Barbara, and me. I also included some of my favorite quilts.

This pillow was made from lace and gray flannel that was gifted to me. My Mom has a friend from Thailand, who recently moved back. She had to sell everything in her house, including her house. She was so generous in her giving. She knew I sewed so she gave me many items.
I have been trying to learn embroidery on my new Bernina. It has been a slow process. But I think I have finally figured it out. My colors are not correct, but fall has many colors!
The next few pictures are items made for The Common Threads Quilt Guild boutique. This fabric I found at one of the quilt shops on my recent trip to Sisters Oregon.
I thought this could either be for a man or a women cook! Who loves fishing??
I had enough left over fabric to make a pot holder to go with the apron.
Another Table Runner.
Coin purses, or card holders
I found this lipstick fabric at Road to California last year, and fell in love with it. So fun!
This was a "pop up" bag I made. Pattern is by "The Fat Quarter Gypsy".

This is the group I traveled with to Oregon. We traveled to eight different towns to shop at quilt stores.
(Barbara Sawyer, Elaine Berry, Debbie VanFossen, Barbara Sindlinger, Diane Mitchell, Janice Minyard, and Kathy Morrison)
We also wanted to see Barn Quilts. We were able to find two barns
Our small quilting group is named "Material Girls". So we had to get a picture next to this sign. This quilt store was in Redmon Oregon.
This picture was taken in the backyard of one of the homes
This was a small quilt show they held at Black Butte Resort.
