I survived Quilt Fest....sorta

I survived Quilt FestivaL!!! Sorta....
This is a class I took from a National Teacher, Louisa Smith. Very interesting but HARD and stressfull. It is on my design wall looking for just the right fabric to finish. Thats why there are random fabrics stuck to it.
We were able to buy chances to win "Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Quilts" I won this cancer block that was made into a clock. It is actually my block that I donated last year. Don't tell anybody but it is 2 boobs, one pink and perfect and one odd but lovable.
We also bought chances to win donated mini-quilts. (A lot of gambling going on it seems). I won this one although I did not buy a chance on it!! I can't figure that one out.

My convergence class was pretty good. Here are some of my student's quilts (almost done). They really did a good job. I have pictures of all of them and their quilts, but won't put them all up.

I was also nearly mugged the first night on my way back to my hotel. Ogden is a SCARY place. Heavenly Father was watching out for me even though I made it really hard by putting myself in a dangerous situation. I had to remember to BE Careful.


  1. I'm glad you are ok. You left out the almost mugging story when we asked you about your week. You'll have to fill us in on the details. We'll try and keep quiet about the boobs.

  2. That's great that you won the boob clock! You deserve it! The quilts look great and good luck with your swirly/fancy one. It's good you weren't actually mugged that night you were waving your hundred dollar bills around in the dark, you would have been marked with the "tomb of the unknown sewer"!

  3. All three of your comments mention "boobs". I think women like saying, "boob" more than they would like to admit.

    I'm glad you escaped being mugged and that your quilting fest was a success.

  4. Kathy,

    The quilts are beautiful. You did a fantastic job.

    Marc served his mission in Ogden and he agrees with you, it's a scary place.

    Hope all is well with you and your family.


  5. Wow! I love the quilt blocks. I can't wait to see the completed quilt. Your convergence quilts are awesome. It makes me want to try one. I am looking forward to seeing more quilt pictures. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Pat! I was just thinking about you! What's your email,or do you have a blog?
