Fan Quilt

I really tried to be disciplined while shopping the vendor room at Quilt Study Seminar last week in Lincoln.

  There are three styles of quilts that I would like to add to my collection and I was "holding out" for one of the those.  Well, only found a couple of blocks.  So then I decided on another quilt but when I went back it was gone!

So when the auction started I decided I'd get one that wasn't on my "list" but at least then I'd be donating to the Study Group.  Well I bid on many and only came away with one.  (it was so crazy that at one point Julie Silber, the auctioneer, was bidding for me....)  I ended up with the last quilt of the auction!  And a fan embroidered quilt at that!  Not my usual style but I do like it.  One of my sister's loves crazy quilts and this one is in very good condition.  I think it may find its way to Massachusetts...

I didn't get much sewing done this weekend.  Dh took lots of time.  We finally went and got some new clothes for him that done require a huge belt to hold his baggy pants up (he went from a 40 waist to a 32!)  He looked much better going off to work today.  So now maybe I can get some work done....

It's a nice one. Victorian isn't "in" so much these days, I've heard, so it's a good time to collect it because the prices aren't as insane as they could be.

Oh, I think that is a gorgeous quilt! Not one I would ever make, but certainly something I admire!!
DH recently went through the exact size change, but mostly through strict dieting. The trick for him will be maintaining it. He LOVES food! Problem is, I love to cook.
