Heart Strings!!!!



Hi everyone! Ready for the weekend!?




I put this little top together...heart strings!! I did not use up all the red strings I had, so I packaged them all back up and put them away for another day.




I had the opportunity to go to the Dallas Quilt Show today!




I met Lois Arnold, a wonderful friend met through this blog. Lois is just as nice in person as She is on her blog...and she is a quilt author and wow! A wonderful quilter!! Please click on her name to go to her blog. I also saw friends old and new...quilters, nurses and both! Even a pAtient's wife who had recently been hospitalized. It was great fun!!






Have a great day, all!

I'm glad you got to go, I was going to go with a friend but her son got sick so I had to miss, didn't want to drive that far by myself. I live in Mansfield.

What a cute heart quilt. Is this a wall hanging, a baby quilt, or a miniature quilt?

Julie, are you in Texas? My goodness. I am going to be just west of Ft. Worth next week - just missing the quilt show. So sad. I used to go to the one in Ft. Worth and just loved it. They always did such a great job. Glad you had the opportunity to attend. Your quilt is just beautiful. You're like a whirling dirvish!! You accomplish so much.

Julie, It was so great to finally meet you in person! I wish we had been able to spend a lot more time visiting. There were periods when the booth was totally quiet, but it was so very busy when you were there! We'll have to plan another time when we can sit and chat.

Love the heart quilt! The strings are growing on me, I might have to make a string quilt one of these days!
