Quilter's Home- April May 2010 has an article on page 14 that is titled 55 Favorite blogs for Quilters.

55-blogs
I saw some of my blog buddies listed like lazygirl quilting.blogspot.com and http://www.cluckclucksew.com/and aquiltinglife.blogspot.com. Of course manquilter.com/Blog.php is listed. http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/and patsloan.typepad.com are always entertaining reads.
I checked out some "new to me" blogs such as makeitandloveitblogspot.com, crapivemade.blogspot.com, quiltsabit.blogspot.com and many, many, many more.
The article features my personal favorite blog http://www.modabakeshop.com/. I love what the article says about the bake shop. "Hey, it's moda. Do we honesty have to say more?"
Then to my fright I also see modalissa listed. Yikes! Eeek! Opps! I am not worthy. The writeup talks of my travel journal. So I have worked hard to do something this weekend that is worthy of being featured along with this prestigous group of bloggers. I traveled from Dallas to Ft. Worth (approx 30 minutes)
DALLAS QUILT SHOW 2010
No picture of this quilt could do it justice. The graphic beauty drew me closer. The detail and 3D effects on the quilt were incredible.

The tree branches were gathered and zig zagged. Stunning.

This is a priceless picture of Mark Dunn (my boss) looking at this quilt which is a quilt I made. He turned and saw me taking his pic in front of my quilt. Priceless.
Loved this one made by Eun Yeon Yoo of Flower Mound, Texas.

Who couldn't stop and smile at this quilt by Tonya Littmann from Denton, Texas of her son when he was 6 years old.

Saturday morning I headed off to the Fabulous Finds Spring Fling show. The show was sponsored by Cabbage Rose and Etsy Ft. Worth.
I was hoping to meet a couple of the members of the Dallas Modern quilt quild. (I didn't get to meet them, but had a ton of fun shopping with my niece, Kennedy Collins.) Just a few of the etsy artists I met or bought from:
Cut out and Collect.
Revel Designs
Hippie Bliss
Fluffy Stuffies

Kennedy shown in corner shocked to see a dog shopping!
One of the Bottlecap Jewelry booths also had a make it and take it station. Kennedy jumped right in.This show was so refreshing to me. It reminds me of the years that I did exactly what they were doing. Making things and selling them. If you have a show in your area you must go. I already have on my calender, Spring Bash, May 1st, sponsored by Dallas Etsy.

Visited Montgomery Street Antique Mall
A goldmine! It also happens to be across from Cabbage Rose Quilting which is an over the top quilt shop!There were literally groups of women squealing when they came in the door.

A great weekend! My niece and I also made a quilt that is featured over at the Moda Bake Shop.

Thank you Quilter's Home for featuring little ol' me.

    I LOVE the picture of Mr. Dunn looking at your quilt and the fact that you had the time to get all those pieces together. Hearing about all the fun things to do in Dallas has made me so jealous. I will have to tell you about all the trouble I got into many years ago babysitting my niece!
