The Big Reveal

As I mentioned we had our big reveal yesterday over at Tangled Textiles.  A cornucopia of different techniques were used in each member's piece.  It was exciting to see how each of us interpreted the theme "games" which was chosen by Beverly.  Here is my piece called Kitty's Kradle based on the old string game I played as a child.

I usually bind my quilts, but this time tried the technique of simply couching the edge with yarn.  It turned out pretty nice I think.

Speaking of reveal, I forgot to show you some of the items that I brought home from the retreat I attended last week.  There was a wonderful antique shop in Orting where I found an antique blouse (gonna use the lace in a crazy quilt) and some hankies. 

The fancy ribbon came from Shibori Dragon. and so did these stencils, patterns, silk thread and book.

I also acquired some wonderful batiks at the Quilt Barn.  It's called "acquiring" if you are forming a collection isn't it?

Acquiring for your collection is all good. What great choices.
