Spring and stars

I haven't been posting much in this last week,. Just lurking around reading everyone Else's blogs. There are some very talented people out there. I love the quilt Reading out loud Quilt! Some nice give a ways, and I am so glad Tonya's Pokey is not letting her sew much. lol There is a small quilt fabric store in town that sells grab bags of scraps. I decided to do something with some scraps. Here I have made some stars and don't know what to do with them. I have been just making these till the inspiration hits me to do something grand.
I snapped this picture one morning on my way to work. It is the sun shinning through a sprinkler wheel line.

The cherry orchard just burst into bloom over night. Bees swarming all over the orchard just sings with their buzzing.

It smells so good but really makes my nose itch like crazy. I did not know I had allergies till this year.

Quilt show on Mom's weekend U of I

I said I would put more pictures of quilts from the quilt show on. I think this was my favorite little quilt at the quilt show. There is just so much movement in this one. This one was so neat with the 3 d effect with the necklace and hanky
This is an old handkerchief.

I thought this was unique

You need to click on the picture and super size to see the details.

This is done with that fancy cutting, each piece is the same place in the fabric.

Here is the larger picture of the only liberated one I saw.

This one is so pretty with all the flowers.

This quilt was huge king sized I think.

This was a pretty colorful flying geese.

My kids on campus.

I love this picture of the daughter through an art statue
