Row Quilt!

I have been wanting to make a row quilt for about a year, finally I have started one!

Here are the pictures of how far I have come on my quilt.
I have kites, butterfiles, baskets with flowers and blocks I love.

I will add at least 2 more rows, so this will be a big quilt (for me) with the borders.

If anyone is interested in any of my rows, just let me know and I'll get you the pattern.
One more thing tonight, I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow. I am thankful for my family, home, country, church and many friends that make my life so full and happy.

I have not posted for a while because I have been out of town and busy working on fun new ideas. 
My first trip was to Houston, Quilt Market. It was a fast, fun trip. I was my friends and met new friends, along with fabric, antique buttons, ribbons, and more.
The talented sisters of Pine Needles Quilt Shop were there with the darling new line that Sandy has designed with Riley Blake Fabrics. 
The Riley Blake Booth was full of inspiring ideas, patterns and fabric just across the isle from Pine Needles. The whole corner of the floor was full of the talented women from Utah!

My next trip was up to Deer Valley last weekend with the Quilt Retreat by Quilt, Etc. Quilt Store. We got to spend 3 days at the Chateaux at Silver Springs. I left Friday morning and drove up to the top of Deer Valley in the snow. It was just like a Christmas Card with the snow and lights on the trees. Some of us had a hard time driving up with all of the snow, but we all made it safely.

This is the 2nd year I was able to go, and for me it is different to sew a mystery quilt. I all ways like to know just what I am putting together, but i finished my top and I have a fun Christmas quilt for the season.

Here are a few of my room mates as we go down to the Pajama Party. Boy the hotel robes are made for Big people!

  Connie sat across from me at the table and finished her quilt the same day she started! 
It was a wonderful get a way and after the snow slowed down Sunday morning I drove home ready to start a new project, to finish a few I have started.

A few I have started are a Row Quilt with kites, butterflies, flowers and more. I will  post pictures next. I am also working on a wool project from wool I was able to buy at Quilt Market.

Enjoy the snow, it's perfect weather to quilt!
Good bye till next time!
