It's showtime in Florida... quilt show time that is. The calendar is full with quilt show weekends from now until late spring. One in February is the exhibition at the Florida State Fair held in Tampa, Feb. 10-21. One of the exhibit categories is needlework, so I decided to send in some entries this year. These are the items getting ready to travel. The Black-Eyed Susan quilt above is one I made while learning the thread-painting technique with Ann Fahl's book "Coloring With Thread". And you've seen the others on this blog already- the Symphony quilt, Coffee Break quilt, and Old World Santa (which are referred to in some areas as "Bullet Santas" as I learned from one of the comments).
And guess who was helping in the sewing room?? Lily has settled in nicely since her arrival two weeks ago. As you can see, she is a stealth cat who likes to hide and make her move when least expected! She's very energetic and entertaining.
