It's been a while! Weather has been beautiful and beckoning me into the garden. I have been doing some hand quilting and in everything I do I'm trying to be more mindful. That concept seems to be everywhere nowadays, even at a quilt guild meeting. Back in April - that seems so long ago - I went to a Quilters Unlimited meeting in McLean to hear Mark Lipinski talk about his Slow Stitching movement. If you've ever heard Mark speak before you will understand that I was quite intrigued. He is very high energy. I thoroughly enjoyed his lecture. It was a good reminder to enjoy the process of quilting. He was lamenting the fact that the quilt world has been moving more to the quick and easy style quilting and loosing the peacefulness of the process and creating something of value. Probably something we are tending toward in all aspects of our lives. There was much more to his lecture so if you ever get a chance to go I'm confident you will find it very entertaining.
This past weekend I attended the Quilters Unlimited show in Chantilly Virginia with my friend Lesa. It was good to catch up with her and to see people I hadn't seen in a while. Here are a few of my favorite quilts. Feel free to Pin and don't forget to give credit to the quilters and the show.
