Quilt Shot Block ~ The Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society. Pt.1

 At last's months program at the Elkhorn Creek Quilters' Guild,
members of The Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society
brought the 2017 President's Challenge Traveling Quilts 
to share with the group.
This is a part of those mini quilts.
You can find more information and pictures of these quilts on the KHQS website .
I've tried to get closer shots of some of the quilts.
Enjoy viewing the meticulous details.

Yours truly was fortunate to have a front row seat and grab these shots.
The ladies presenting were also very accommodating.
 After the presentation,
members were provided gloves and a walk around 
to check out the mini quilts even closer.

real pebbles.

Thoughtful Thinking Thursday #115 ~ Decorating for You?

I've decided my decorating style in my home is called, "Homey Memories."

There have been times when I've been and seen other homes that are impressive
and think I must purge more.
I've gotten down to the items that have a LOT of memories.
Everything once belonged to family like my grand parents, parents, children, uncles, aunts and such,
or was given to me as a gift especially from Mr. G,
or acquired on special trips especially long road yard sales with Mr. G.
My house is a museum to me.
Just when I wonder if it's cluttered too much,
someone like the HVAC Maintenance guy walks through the house,
stops and says,
"I like the homey feel of your house."
I tell him I think it's cluttered and he says,
 "Oh no, you have everything arranged to make a person stop and look and wonder."
Then I realize once again, "That was my goal."
Do you decorate to impress someone else or yourself?
"THINK about it."
Nothing in the picture above was bought on a shopping trip for decorating.

Upcycled Housecoat Gift Tags

     As promised from last week's Tuesday Tutorial Teaser, here is what I used the tiny scraps leftover from the Upcycled Housecoat Gift Bag project.

 Simple shapes were free form cut from the scraps.
Tag board sheets were cut to desired gift tag size.
One stitching line was used.
 A hole was punched so tag could be tied onto gift bags.

 You'll find this post at several Linky Parties
Please check them out for some great ideas.
