Photos from MQX!

As you can tell I have neglected my blog terribly! There are many reasons for this and actually none of them bad. You see I have been busy, very very busy! Since my closing of the daycare and my move to Discount Vac and Sew I have been working 6 days a week and 10 hour days. Am hoping soon to back off that schedule a little bit now that my business is fairly established. I have quilts coming in on a regular basis, have been teaching classes (and thankfully have been training a second teacher to help with that load) and we got Torrie off to collage!

 It is time for a break, so last weekend I took a couple of days off, drove 4 hours to Portland and attended MQX. As always the quilts were beautiful, (even mine!) and the people were wonderful. I took three classes and have been overflowing with ideas ever since. I loved my class with Jamie Wallen, even though it was not the class I thought it was, he is a very nice man. My favorite class, hands down was the Color it Done class with Sherry Rogers Harrison. I have the pattern for this beautiful applique quilt (sorry no photo yet) that I really want to make, but alas I am not so great at applique, so I took Sherry's class with the thought in mind to paint the quilt. I am absolutely loving the technique and will be starting work on the new quilt this afternoon.  Below are a couple of photos from MQX and a photo or two of my Color it Done project!
Feel free to comment and let me know what you think.

Happy Quilting,

Peacock Fancy! Yes it got accepted into MQX. No it didn't win anything, but then I knew it wouldn't I was just thrilled to have it accepted!

I also had both dresses entered, sadly neither won, but again it was a thrill just to see them there! Maybe next year.....

This is my homework from my Color it Done class. In this photo I have put down my base paint, as you can tell I still had a lot to do. Below is the finished block!

This is my finished block. I am very very happy with how it turned out. Not bad for my first time!
