Dallas Quilt Celebration 2010 and Happy St. Urho’s Day!

Posted on: March 15, 2010

Happy St. Urho’s Day to all my Finnish friends! Don’t know St. Urho? His day is celebrated on March 16…one day before the more famous St. Patrick’s Day. St. Urho cast the frogs out of Finland. See his story here . Scroll down to Nonhistorical traditions. And, don’t forget to wear your purple tomorrow!

This past weekend was the Dallas Quilt Guild’s quilt show. Here are pictures of some of the quilts I particularly liked or found interesting.

“How My Garden Grows” by Shelly Sutton

“Beach Budds” by Sandy Brawner

“Modern Coffee” by Barbara Lange

“Mariner’s Choice” by Jean Dobson

“Eat A Bug” by Cathy Bradley

“How Do You See the World” by Terri Krysan

“Fizzle Sticks” by Candy Mahaffey – one of the log cabin quilts that met the guild’s theme…

And, the completed guild raffle quilt (not the Dallas Guild, I’m holding off on naming as our guild has not seen it, yet):

I haven’t told you what I’m reading in a while. I just finished “The Titan’s Curse” by Rick Riordan, the third book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympian series. I read the first book before seeing “The Lightning Thief” movie, and really enjoyed it. So, currently, I’m reading “The Scarpetta Factor” by Patricia Cornwell, the lastest book in the Kay Scarpetta series.

Have a great week!

Love the colours in How My Garden Grows and the Mariner’s Choice is gorgeous too. Congrats on the guild quilt.
