The seam allowance was wonky, the plates didn't lay flat and the backgrounds were cut without attention to the grain of the fabric. I think I paid $4.50 plus shipping for 25 blocks.

Mystery Quilt - Linda McCallum
I loved the piping and binding detail on this one, very fun!
Graduation gift - Dede Lediford
I know I've photographed this quilt at another show before. I just love how striking it is.
Lone Star - Kim Sechrest
Thimbleberries Sampler - Betty
This was a king too, also for sale at a low price. The applique-like blocks are pre-printed, but the patchwork blocks are pieced.
Home and Harvest - Barbara Little
This is felt applique', the contrast was stunning. I recognized it as a block of the month pattern in one of the quilt magazines. I'd considered doing some of the blocks but couldn't imagine taking on the whole quilt!
Manatee's Paradise - Sherry K
Each circle has a manatee cameo.
It looks like I took a lot of orange-red quilt pictures. I must've had autumn colors in my mind that day. :cD

Now I think I should make it again with the new piecing and updated colors. I don't think I've made many quilts twice, once made is once enough. But this has possibilities. I could forget the block piecing approach and sew it in rows.
And it's nice to know I really do learn as I go along!

I got pretty excited when I finally got it laid out. Woo-HOO! I'm back at it!
(Note: I just read my original post about the DFP blocks and it all came back to me. Wow! This blogging is a great quilt journal thing)
Hollin and I got on the road home at 5:00. When we got to the house Frank was up and packed and they took off for Oregon. I was glad not to have the long leg of the trip. Frank called that evening to say they'd arrived at BIL's house. I talked to them this morning and they were headed west for Cannon Beach about 11:00. Ecola college had a short window of time allowed for moving in, 2:30 t0 5:00 and they wanted to get there with time to drive around the town to get a feel for it. It turns out I had the camera so I won't get pictures of the campus or dorm room until later.

Shhh... it's a surprise.
