Garden Party Dresses

Here's my excuse for not posting more about Artfest yet. I'm very busy making art! (OK, and I haven't gotten around to taking pics of the art I bought and the art I made.) But I have been busy finishing up this quilt. I'm calling it Garden Party Dresses and it's 21" by 27". And it has a sleeve and a label and it's going to hang in a show this weekend. That's me, right on time!

The show is Imagination Unleashed: Dreams and Illusions put on by Sew Uniquely You. Saturday and Sunday, the 26th and 27th at The Old Church Arts and Cultural Center, 405 William Street, Post Falls, ID. It's a contemporary/art quilt show and Anna has promised that my paper quilt won't be "that weird quilt made by that weird girl."

Pistol took an active helper cat role in finishing this up. Such a good little (gigantic) helper cat.

"You should definitely use this thread mom. It smells good." (Yes, he's the one who put the thread on the quilt block.)


"Hmm, and maybe some of these buttons. They look tasty!"

The quilt looks great.
I look forward to seeing the full completed quilt and more from the show.

Gorgeous quilt! (And I love how your cat helps. Mine just sits on stuff.) I've got a really busy weekend (son's birthday), but I'm hoping I can sneak to Post Falls on Sunday to see the show.

Love the quilt! Pistol is quite the helper. I love how he picked out the thread.

Thanks for the heads-up about the exhibit - I would have missed it had I not popped into your blog last night. So I have just seen your "weird little quilt by the weird girl" ;-) and I'm impressed! Pistol did a great job, er, I mean YOU did a great job. So much interesting detail when viewed first hand. Yes, I had my nose nearly touching it! Lovely stitching.
