Well the Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts show officially opened in New York City on Friday. I've read a lot of pre-show information but have yet to run across any first hand accounts of the show from a quilter. I can hardly wait for those posts to start popping up.
Here's my tribute to what sounds like a wonderful show.....
This is Father's Fancy.
Select Lifetime Quilt #20 for more detail.
I think we may have a winner, my daughter liked several names suggested on the "Name this Dog" post, and is trying one out, so stay tuned. For sure the agency that rescued the pup is a winner, last time I checked I had 74 comments which would be a nice little donation for that organization.
Clarification - there seems to be a little confusion on a few "terms" I use regularly on my blog, so I thought I better set the record straight:
"Thelmasized" - The act of enlarging a Schnibbles pattern or reducing any pattern that has a 12 inch block.
"Thelmafied" - The act of making minor fabric changes to a kit or BOM as to make it more appealing in appearance to Thelma.
One last thing, a few posts ago I mentioned that I am a rule follower, and some folks thought that was a real funny, since I seem to be always changing up something in a pattern, but for the record, I would like to state that I think pattern directions are just like speed limit signs, they are more guidelines than actual rules.
Tomorrow's the last Eventide update post before the big parade, hope you can stop back by!
