Pillowcases, Serpentines and . . .

I dropped off 4 quilts for the GSQ show this weekend and it's all about the pillowcases! Each quilt needed its own pillowcase with a label and I must admit the ones I'd been using for years looked pretty sad. Then I had an aha moment and remembered some I made sitting on a shelf with my quilts. 

The ones I brought to quilt take-in were so admired that I thought you might like to see them, too.  

It's a fun way to use pre-printed panels.

That little white folded triangle on the right has the name of the matching quilt but I covered it with a label for the quilt I was entering in the show.

I'd make them a little larger if there's ever a second time around :)

Serpentine stars from last week's quiltalong. 



This week it's Excentric Prints. Hmmm . . .

Trilliums were blooming in the North Country this past weekend.

And Lady Slippers were just beginning.


My daughter and I always check out the Great Blue Heron nests. Here's one with mama sitting on her eggs. She was hunkered down and so still!  


A cropped version. 

We went for another great hike. The perfect ending to a wonderful weekend!
