We are driving north today to check out a couple of used Jeeps for sale. Just stopped is Waskatenau for gas. It's cheaper here then in Edmonton!
And look, you can buy liqueur with your fill up at the gas station. Hee hee, how convenient!

I finished another quilt top while waiting for my order from Connecting Threads to come in (which is bringing my backing for the donation quilt and this newly finished top).
I call this one Beautiful Chaos. I think I posted the strips and maybe some blocks for this over a year ago!
Here are my crappy iPhone pictures (I heard the new iPhones are out or coming so maybe I can finally upgrade my 3 to a 5 without paying 600 bucks!).
What do you think of it? Crazy to much, or crazy cool?

What do you think? Does any of these "speak" to you?
The top one is hard to see, I had one of those excellent Sharpie Pencil to Pens, but I lost it yesterday at the Creative Stitches show =( I just drew it this morning with a pencil and it is just not as good.
I'd love to get your thoughts on this so if you have a comment, please do leave it.

I'm at this show right now and so far it has been fabulous! I met Cindy from Cindy's Threadworks almost as soon as I got here. She is amazing and I hope to stay in touch with her. I photographed one of her quilts and will post it soon as I took it with my camera and I am currently on my crappy old phone.
Here are a couple of photos though:
I briefly met Carola this morning as she was organizing her samples for this afternoons session. It starts in 15 min, I better eat my lunch and get in there!!!!

I made all these blocks on my Phaff, but almost every row were assembled with my new Bernina 820.
The pattern is called Diamonds, I saw a photo of it online and made up my own square size of three inches. Wish I went larger - this took forever!
This quilt will be donated to my home town to do a raffle to buy books for the library. I used the library fabric from Connecting Threads. I think the line was called Bookish. I really like their fabric and I love their big spools of thread.
Now to quilt this monster! I have a queen bed, and this top is almost touching the floor on both sides and it just touching at the foot of the bed.
I'm feeling inspired by Angela Walters quilting she did on her quilt Impracticality which was featured on the June / July issue of Quilters Newsletter.
It's totally different then my diamond quilt, but not.... ... LOL.
What do you think? Any one have any suggestions for me? I'm also thinking I might quilt it with a navy thread, what do you think? Is that crazy talk? Will that be too busy? I do have brown.
Love to hear your thoughts my friends!!
