The Country Loft outdoor quilt show

I (and Mindy) went to the Country Loft outdoor quilt show with my quilting buddy Lisa today. (Thank you for taking us to the show, Lisa!)
They always have tons of goodies beside beautiful quilts and so many things to see.
Look this adorable doll and guess who made this! Renée Plains from Liberty Star made it!!! I love her quilts and dolls so of course I had to take her home with me. What a treasure!

I made an another damage for my sweet heart but He doesn't mind.( I hope)
A lot of Autumn patterns---- Yes, I'm so ready for FALL!!!
BTW I purchased those yummy looking plaids and prints from Rosie's Calico Cupboard quilt shop which is less than 5 min drive from the Country Loft.
Can you believe those plaids are $4 per yard?? I couldn't resist them!!!
Here is the pictures from the quilt show. Enjoy!!

Terapy for a quilter

Which means, "Fabric shopping". *LOL*

I stopped at The Temecula Quilt Co. after I dropped my son off at his friend's house for birthday sleepover last weekend.
This mean another damage for my dearest husband. *LOL*

I bought a bunch of "Worn and Loved" line by Jeanne Horton from Windham fabrics.( plus more Jo Morton's of course.)
It's my favorite fabric line right now. These warm well worn color will perfectly fit my quilt style.



One of my on going project is T square quilt, pattern by Temecula Quilt Co.
Those are my finished T square blocks so far. I use the card board template and hand piece those blocks.
During the visit, I asked the owner If I could take a picture of this quilt and she kindly held the quilt for me. Isn't she sweet? :-)

They were having a class while I was there. Everybody in a class was very friendly and the class itself looks very fun. I do hope that I can join them one day near the future.

My Boo & Co.


I just received this picture from my DH.
I'm so happy to see He and his Marines are doing fine although my DH got so much sands on his face.*LOL* Well, That's pretty much like him, dirty won't bother him at all. :-D


Here's myWIP "Semper Fidelis" quilt blocks.


DI hat block.

My Hubby was a Drill Instructor once, So this block represents his past in the Marine Corps.

FIY: Drill Instructor "Making MARINES"





Operation KHANJAH block.
This picture is not my hubby. I just copy this photo from FOX News or CNN when Marine Corps's first operation kicked off in Afghanistan this July.
I'd love to know who is this brave Marine. :-)



"Uncommon valor was a common virtue" block.
This is one of Marine Corps symbolic moment captured during WWII, battle of Iwo Jima.
The memorial statue stands in Arlington, Virginia.

Escaped?

No, I didn't escaped from the blogland. Although, I've been VERY busy with the kids.
My son is starting to go to a summer camp called the Cyber Camp, Monday to Friday 8AM to 3:30 PM.
It's held on U.S.M.C. Camp Pendleton and since we aren't live on this base, I have to drive up to this location. I can tell you, It's a heck of drive on Interstate 5!*LOL*



Meanwhile, I finish this little quilt. It's Jo Morton's pattern and called "Side by side" from her book "Small Quilts for Framing".



Hand pieced and hand quilting. size is 9"X13-1/4".




Unfortunately I think this book is OOP but I heard Jo is working on small & doll quilts book right now. Don't know when it will be publish though, I'm VERY anxious to see it.
I know it's gonna be another of my favorites. :-)
