Finally Unpacked!

Well I am unpacked but I haven't taken photos yet so the finds from Seminar will have to wait another day.  Isn't it amazing that only being gone a few days can generate such a long list of things to do when you get home?  I feel as if I've been running errands non-stop!
                         One of the quilts on display at the IQSC&M, Signature Quilt Exhibit
                                          Soldier's Quilt in the storage room at IQSC&M

Regardless, today I will sew.  If I don't then it will be over a week without a needle in my hand and that just will not do!


So do I finish up my ribbon candy quilt or pull a Halloween quilt UFO out of the closet in hopes of finishing it in time for this year's holiday?  Tune back tomorrow...

In the meantime Mac and I need to get ready for tonight's debates....

That Soldier's Quilt looks extraordinary, is there information about it somewhere. Are those hexies or triangles? Just stunning. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, gorgeous quilts! The Soldier's Quilt is totally unique. More info, if you have it, please?

I agree, it is amazing what only a few days away takes to recover to normal routine.

I vote for the Halloween quilt :)

I seem to recall an ancient article on a soldiers quilt with a similar look, and it was all made of the wool from their uniforms. Is this true for this one? It's stunning! Thanks for sharing!

That soldier's quilt is incredible. Any details?
I can understand the desire to get a Halloween UFO finished, but I would also love to see more of your ribbon candy quilt. It is so fun!

I bet you had a great time...I love the signature quilt you have pictured!

I agree..."stuff" can wait, but the needle shouldn't...

In stitches,
