Vanity Of Vanities

Oh, happy day, my quilts did not sell!
LOL! I know that I put them into Keepsake Quilting's First Annual Outdoor quilt show, but I didn't really want to part with them!! One was my Calliope Music, at 92"X104", priced for $910.

This is such a pretty quilt! Here it is up closer.

The second quilt of mine that I offered was Easy Street, which is 96"X96", and quilted by me with Baptist Fans.

I listed Easy Street at $1,560.00. If it had sold, I think that I would've cried. Who am I kidding?

I love my quilts! How could I ever part with them? These are both Bonnie K. Hunter designs and here is her blog. I could spend a lifetime making her wonderfully crafted patterns!

Ahh, but when I was there at The Mothership to pick up my quilts, a few yards from the outlet store called to me, "Victoria, Victoria...come know you want me..."

The shop wasn't too crowded so I only waited a minute or two at the cutting desk.

I loved the tie-up ribbon that Laurel chose for me, it was CROSSROADS!!! That's from the quilt that I just finished, LOL!

Here's the neat loot inside!

Each was a one yard piece and each was $5.99, so I escaped for only $30, LOL!! Next is a terrible picture of a wonderful fabric's selvedge.

I guess it's time to make more potholders, at least I don't mind selling those, LOL! I have none left!

Raven is about the same, healthwise, so we take it one day at a time. She sure is funny when she sleeps, though. Who could hold this pose?

Treasure every moment and,
Happy sewing!

Those are both such beautiful quilts! You'd better be careful--someday one will sell and then what would you do?
Nice fabrics--they sure called to you loudly from the outlet store! : )

Putting a quilt up for sale brings to mind the old adage: Be careful what you wish for; you just might get it. Those quilts are lovely--you do wonderful work!

Love the pose of the pup on the quilt.
