Visit with Mom and Quilt Show

Well I was so excited to go out to lunch yesterday I did not look at my post very closely.  Oops…..I didn’t upload any of the quilt show pictures.     Lol….guess that gives me a good reason to come back today!!

Like I mentioned, the weather was quite rainy, 1.89 inches in twelve hours. IMG_1678

Here is the rain pouring off the patio,  the best thing is mom had no leaks.   Mom did some updates to her park model in Yuma, it is the perfect size now for her and guests when we come to visit.

We were going to go up to Tucson for a couple days but changed our plans because of the weather.    We did find a local quilt guilds quilt show with a nice vendor attendance.   These first two quilts were the viewers choice winners from the previous year.

These next two had the same maker and were hand quilted.  So beautiful.  I chose this first one as my viewers choice favorite.

If I had to choose a favorite, or which one would I want for my home this one would be my choice,  I loved the colors and the raw edge quilts are so cuddly.     And I just had to keep my sister in the picture.  :))

We enjoyed the vendors attending the show.    My goodness I was mesmerized by Liberty Homesteads booth.  They had been to the Road to California show and are attending some small shows on there way home to Kansas.   I have never seen there quilts in person and fell in love immediately.  We purchased some of their dyed muslins.    Books or pictures never do justice for the real item do they.  They asked for us to not take pictures of there booth so sorry no pic’s.

One day we ate lunch at this bakery/deli restaurant that I can not remember the name of to save my life.   But….here are some pictures of their desserts of which we did not indulge.     I would today if I could have a take back.    Do you make desserts like this?

OK enough of that stuff, yum!!  

It’s super bowl Sunday this weekend,  are you watching the game, having a party or celebrating at your local quilt shop.   We haven’t been real big football fans the last few years but I am sure we will watch some.    We are going to make some homemade Pizza.   I will share the recipe and pictures. 

Prim Blessings,

Carrie

Beautiful quilts to see this time, lol. Glad I'm not the only one to do things like that. The workmanship on those quilts is wonderful. Yes Liberty Homestead has a darling booth and those died muslins are WONDERFUL - yup I've got a stash myself,lol. We were lucky enough to stop at her shop when we were in MO for prims of the midwest last summer. She comes to our state quilt show and I always make a beeline for her booth. Can't wait for your pizza recipe.

hugs- Karen

Hi Carrie, Love the quilts; never heard of this vendor but I went to Road to Ca. once so maybe saw her.
The bakery looks incredible!! Made me hungry just looking at the photos.
We have snow today so I'm quilting all day. Hugs to you.

Carrie,
What beautiful quilts!! I haven't been to a quilt show in about 2 years, but I sure do love to go to them and see all the quilts. Not to mention shopping in the booths. Going to do a quilt shop hop in a few weeks if the weather isn't too bad.
