I'm back!

It's been a long, long time since my last post. Since then we have shared Christmas with the family and then travelled to Mesa, AZ for a month and from there to California for three more weeks. One of the highlights of my time in the USA was the opportunity to visit the Tucson Quilters 35th Quilt Show, called Quilt Fiesta!

As all quilt shows do, this one inspired me with several new ideas for quilts of my own. Unfortunately, I always have more ideas that I want to try than time to do them. And I came home with fabric for four quilts for family which take priority. I've started on the first one called "Christmas Cactus" - look for more info and pictures on my next blog. In the meantime, here are some photos of quilts which I took at the Tucson show. Perhaps they'll inspire you too.

 The first quilt on the left is called "Bouilliabasse" by Pamela Ashbaugh.

Below is "Lollypop Trees" by Nancy Arsenault and lastly, Tami Graeber's award-winning "Grand Finale"
