Can someone tell me what this does? Is it really necessary? It seems suspicious to me.

Am I allowed to include photos in the post? Here are some from our drive in the country last week. The farm photos are from an area outside Staunton Virginia and the town photos are of Lexington Virginia. I just found out my cousin is moving from Oregon to Lexington. We had to check it out.

40th Annual Quilters Unlimited Quilt Show 2013 Part 2

I've been very distracted in my sewing room lately - mostly making scrappy 9-patches for my crabapple quilt. I think I'll also use them in a quilt for my great niece. I did clean up a pile of scraps in the process so that felt good to do. I've also hand pieced a few spool blocks and hexie flowers. I have a couple of projects I'm keeping secret.

I promised these show quilts soon and now I see it's been more than several days since I posted. We've had nice weather here in Virginia and I've spent a few of those days with the windows and doors open while I putter around the house - doing some cleaning, organizing and cooking. We spent last Saturday in Madison County Virginia. We just drove around and passed by a few properties we'd seen for sale online. I'm sorry I didn't take my camera with me. The town of Syria is the prettiest little town I've ever seen in Virginia. We are heading out again tomorrow. It's fun to look!

Hope you enjoy the rest of my favorites from the show-

A random sampler is on my list for the future-

This quilt was made with blocks from Barbara Brackman's Civil War Block of the Week-

Just had to get a pic of the sheep quilt-

Made by Bunnie-

I look tired because I was tired-

The above quilt is mine. I started this one in a class with Jo Morton last spring. Lynn Kraftson and Dorry Emmer also took the class. Their quilts are below. Lynn used batiks and Dorry used red and white fabrics. I love this pattern.

Have a great weekend!
