Quilt Fest

We are finally moved into the new house, completely! As with most of this project, our timing went totally crazy.  After a few delays we finally signed the papers. And of course, it was the day I had to drive North for Quilt Fest in Layton. Sweetie drove South to the new house with the puppy dogs. We hooked up again at the family cabin the next weekend. Our trailer was parked there and so we left from there for a post retirement trip to Wyoming. Sweetie is so more relaxed, retirement is going to suit him! He has worked hard for a lot of years and deserves to to it easy. Since we were without internet, I was not able to post about Quilt Fest until now.

My Dear Friend and teaching partner, Florence with her wonderful Tulip quilt! Perfect hand applique and machine quilted! For some reason this did not get a ribbon. It should have!
Another Dear Friend, Lisa, with her abstract Hello quilt! She does wonderful free form piecing!
Ruth aka "Mom"
Another Dear Friend, Ruth. She is my substitute Mom and very dear to my heart! 10 years ago while we were at Asilomar, I made this little cake quilt for her. Along with being my Mom, she is also my Dessert Monitor. A position that she takes very seriously! And she does her job well! She had found it recently and brought it along to the conference.
Finished my Emerald Pools!
I did not take any classes this year, with all the moving hubbub I just couldn't get it together to prep for a class. I did buy a table in the retreat area and brought a few projects to work on. I was able to finish the binding on my Emerald Pools! Ta Da! A finish!
Emerald Pools!
The completed quilt. This top was such a UFO. I had sewn it at Bryce years ago. Taught a class on it 2 years ago at Quilt Fest. The in progress to demo quilt from that class was finished soon after the class. It feels good to have it Done!
Class samples
Florence and I taught our Walking Foot Wonders class on Saturday. It went very well. Just a sampling of quilts that we show during class. We each had a suitcase full of quilts to show. Lots of different design ideas for using your walking foot.  Florence is the precision part of our team, I am the wing it part!

I am linking to Nina-Marie, Sarah , Beth, Emily, Judy, Beth and Amanda Jean.
