More from the study seminar


Last night unpacked all my purchases from the American Quilt Study Seminar in Lincoln.  Hope to get photos today.  Mainly I bought books this year...though the carpenter's wheel block in the photo at the top of the post was impossible for me to resist!
                                   "Hollywood" one of the Mountain Mist Quilts recently acquired by the IQSCM
                      Isn't it interesting to see the solid colors that are again so popular ...it all comes back around!
After all the energy from the past few days I'm having a hard time settling in and getting back to sewing.  I keep going back to my notes and checking things either online or in my collection.  Hopefully I'll settle down a bit today!

Also I came back to a bit of the neighborhood crisis...leave it to say a cat-hater has threatened to either run-over or worse to any cat he finds outside.  Unfortunately the two people he said it to do not know where he lives...just that he lives in the neighborhood.  So I am taking it on and tonight am going door to door to find him...I waited a day to get my "Irish" under control (I came by this red hair honestly...)  I am hoping it is a cultural misunderstanding and he just needs to learn that in this country poisoning another person's pet is not acceptable and if done intentionally, illegal.  Realize this face to face talk was my third option...my first involved my military training, the second taking his photo and posting on warning notices around the neighborhood (I'm keeping these options in reserve!)  Wish me luck....

What lovely quilts you got to see on your adventures. Glad you had a good trip. Very sorry to hear about the feline fiasco. Please be careful.

I love that block. I bought some similar vintage blocks a few years ago.
Good luck canvassing the neighborhood. : )

Your block is beautifully. Do be careful you never know what someone like that might do.

That's an awesome CW block. I would want to create that! It is fascinating about solids. I'm so intrigued by all you get to see.

Janet said...

I surely love to see your pictures and hear all about it!! What a beautiful block you bought.

have you found the creepy anti-cat culprit? wonder if it's the same jerk who was living there before...
