Had the pleasure of presenting my Sashiko lecture / trunk show for the
Capital Quilters of New Hampshire.
What a great group of ladies!
They all had fun making their Sashiko Mug Rugs!
The next morning we had the follow up Sashiko workshop
for a table topper
Everyone Busy at work … stitching away!
It was nice to see the variety of background fabrics.
most of the gals stuck with the traditional navy blue
but a few ventured of to beige and purple backgrounds.
After the workshop my Quilty Gal Pal Joan and I zipped over
to Manchester NH for the MQX show.
Best of Show was a quilt by
Karen Kay Buckley and Renae Haddadin
check out her blog to see this beautiful quilt ,
in the mean time here are a few pictures from the show….

Here are a few more of my favorites in no particular order!
Just LOVED Margaret Solomon Gunn
beautiful Ribbon Winning Quilt!
Her work is just exquisite
My apologies for not getting the names of the makers for
the next group of quilts. Usually I take a picture of the quilt tag to
refer back to and unfortunately this time I did not.
I am alway in awe at those that can master thread painting,
just look at the expression in the horse's eye
This was a whole cloth quilt!
The nest two are of birds in flight ….
and this one!
A New York Beauty all done in THREAD!!!
The show was wrapping up and I went back to get another look
at "Aunt Millie" to find a teacher pinning her
Faculty Award onto my Quilt!!
It is very special to have a teacher recognize your work
Thank you to Kim Stotsenberg.

It was a fun filled, jam packed 24 hours!
