No fabric in or out this week. Hubby went to work for a local potato farmer, as he does every fall. That meant that I could do other things around the house ( like cleaning - yuck!!) instead of spending time in the sewing room. Course the sewing room needed to be cleaned before the dust bunnies took complete control!!

I did go to Fargo, ND, on Friday and stayed overnight with my daughter Natalie (and of course my wonderful son-in-law Norm!!! LOL). Natalie and I went to a sale of crafting supplies being sold by local crafters. Great way to pick up crafting supplies for very reasonable prices. I bought some foam alphabet stamps for stamping fabric and a leaf rubber stamp. Most of the stuff was for scrapbooking which was good. Save me some $$$$'s. LOL

After the crafting sale, we headed over to see the Indian Summer Quilt Show in Fargo. The ND quilt guild puts on a nice quilt show every year. Some very talented ladies in the area.

One of the quilts on display was called "The Supper Quilt" by Don Locke, a very nice gentleman from Waxahackie, TX. On the back, you could see the great job of quilting. The second picture shows some of the quilting detail on the back. He was fun to talk to and very enthusiastic about his quilt and the process. He pixel-ed a photo of the "Last Supper" picture.  All the squares in the quilt finish at 1/2". 

Here are some more of the quilts at the show. Of course, we were so busy oohing over the quilts for me to remember to take a lot of pictures.

The wallhanging was adapted from a Kaffe Fassett quilt.

Normally I see the rope quilting done in a border treatment. It was interesting to see it used within the piecing. 

Fun bright colors on black. The lighter black was silver dots on solid black.

Just a fun contemporary piece. The little squares were a form of origami.

Wouldn't you like to be sitting on the dock at unset?? 

 The pyramid was a very interesting piecing project. What a fun way to use up some "crumbs."

The Buffalo had raw edge applique, otherwise the rest of the quilt was pieced. The squares in the border were pictures on fabric, enhanced with the quilting.

All in all, it was a fun day spent with my daughter Natalie. I did not buy any quilting fabric but did purchase a few embellishment items.

Thank you for stopping by and make sure you hop over to Patchwork Times and see what others are doing.
