Aurora Quilt Show and Book Sale Friday

Part of the reason I love this particular quilt show is the setting! Aurora was a religious colony is the late 1800's. Many descendants of that colony still live in the area. It's a fantastic little museum that really gives you a glimpse of life back then. (actually the whole town is historic!)

And here are some other great quilts in the show that weren't crazy quilts. 

I'm not a huge fan of samplers, but I like them when the block sizes are mixed up and there is enough going on to keep your interest.

The wheel is pieced, the center circle is appliqued.

Fun and humble!

The applique was unbelievably precise!

And very small. 

And here is Country Roads from a quiltalong I did. 

 Thank you for writing your inspiration, Mary.

Here's another quilt done by the same person who did the houses. These pieces are small!

My sewing room is small and I'm running out of book space. These are a few I've either made almost all the projects from, or am just finished with them. I'm going to have a book sale starting Friday- my first post will be 5AM Pacific time right here. 
 It's first come, first serve. I'll have a reasonable price and you just leave a comment on the one you want. I can put your name on it because I'm sure I'll have to have the sale over 2 or 3 posts.
I have a bit more money to raise for my mission trip to Colombia and the money from the book sale will be used for that. 

PS, If you have given me a book, please don't take it personal if you see it for sale. I love you anyway.

See you bright and early Friday morning!

Aurora Quilt Show- Crazy Quilts!

Crazy About Aurora was this years theme for my favorite quilt show and I've never seen so many in one place before!!

 This one was made in the 40's and the quilting is done by machine and so fun to see!
 A big jumble of craziness fun!!
 I thought the lower left block was adorable. "Let me just make this last blocks with strips!"
Enjoy the show!

 Oh that fabric on the left! And that stitching!!! WOW!

I thought the cross stitch blocks were an interesting addition.

Let's have a great week!
