|Glimpse of Heaven by Rosanne Williamson|
The above quilt is one I wish I made but didn't. You know how I love a hexie, a landscape and handwork. This one does it all!
There were so many exciting quilts all meaningful in some way but I took a few pix to share with you.

This artist made a quilt, coated it in modpodge and placed the maze on the floor, encouraging us to walk on it.

|Inspiration by Marlene Fenoglieto|
|Unforsaken by Bonnie Rhoby|
After all that inspiration I decided to make a little trip by G Street Fabrics on the way home. G Street is a fixture in the greater DC area. Imagine my surprise when I got there and they were closing the store for good. The one in Rockville will remain open.
I found and fell in love with this pink batik, so I got what was left, almost 2 yards and the ginko batik in yummy golden yellow and orange tones was a bit over a yard left.
Then I stocked up on piecing thread.
I like aurifil but it is more delicate at 2 ply 50 wt than this metler silk finish 3 ply 50 weight. I've actually used up a number of spools lately so at 25% off I got these .
