I got to go to the fair with my family on Saturday. A great day for the fair, if you ask me; it was cool, cloudy, periodic sprinkles of rain, and fewer people than if it were sunny. Of course, our first stop was the Creative Activities building where I pulled out my camera and found....the batteries were dead. Please forgive the following cell phone pictures.
This was the first modern quilt I came across. I really enjoyed the quilter's version of Cluck Cluck Sew's Chain Reaction. I've seen a few purple and green quilts, lately, and they're calling my name.
Isn't this quilt of possibly paper pieced people (alliteration!) interesting? I've nicknamed it "It Takes All Kinds."
I also saw a gorgeous rainbow Bali Wedding Star and a star quilt I call "Deep Purple."
Then, there were all the Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild entries, including mine.

|Drew (our president's son) entered his Tokyo Subway quilt and Kristin had more beautiful hand dyed fabrics|
|Nikol, our president, entered this Tula Pink lovely|

Last week, I set some goals for myself. How did I do???
Well, I finished the last ogee...
...put the last touches on my cathedral windows pillow...
...and bound the fabulous improv-pieced quilt by my friend, the Divine Miss M (Bette Midler will just have to be okay with sharing her nickname).
|Thanks for holding the quilts while I snap pics, sweet stuff!|
...decide on layout and order background fabric for the Olympic Ogees...
...and to finish all my outstanding VQB blocks. Luckily, I have already picked out my blocks for the November Sewn Together group, so I won't have to worry about that when October rolls around. I just have to order the fabric for it, because I know I don't have quite enough. I'll group it with the background fabric for Olympic Ogees and get more off of my order from the Fabric.com "Labra" Day Sale. (No, they do not sponsor me, I just order a lot of solids from them.)
In case you're curious, M's first quilt ever was this one. Serious talent in that woman, I tell ya!
Do you have any goals set for your WIP/UFO list?
