FCQ Quilt Show Goodies

Hello from Columbia, Maryland! 

I'm staying with Sharon while we both work at the Faithful Circle Quilt Show.  Please stop by if you live in the DC area.  Visit the FCQ web page to get directions and details.  I heard that nearly (or was it over?) 300 quilts have been hung.  Plus we have vendors, demos and lots of opportunities to win stuff! Fun times! 

Here's a quick peek at a few of the quilts. 
You might recognize my owl quilt which is now owned by my granddaughter Natalie.

I thought this little fish quilt by Roma Knee was so creative.  This is part of the Dots for Tots challenge FCQ offered.  Anyone who wanted to participate was given a preselected group of polka dot fabric.  Remember my sailboat quilt? It's part of the challenge but it still needs its borders and quilting etc.  Here's a close up of the quilting Roma did on the fish. 
You can't  see the scales as well.  I was tickled with this quilt and think it would make a terrific kid's quilt.  I've been playing with drunkard's path blocks for the Throw Me a Curve challenge at Country Piecemakers.  The dp block isn't hard at all so I think there may be a fish in my future. 

If you are looking for my monthly fabric usage report I won't post it until I get back home.  I can give a quick recap though.  I didn't finish any quilt in April. NONE.  I did make several blocks for the monthly BOM but that is going to be it. I only bought 4 yards of which 3 yards was my short stack fabric by mail.  Hopefully I'll do much better in May! 

Happy Quilting All!
