Playing Hang Man

Last week I finally finished my son's wall hanging. I had been waiting to show the finished quilt until we could get it hung on his living room wall. I think Shawn's pretty proud of it.

He also talked me out of another one for his kitchen/dining area. Last Fall I made a quilt barn wall hanging. It was a guild challenge quilt using that striped piece of fabric used on roofs of the barns and the silos. Here is a closer look at that fabric.
My son's kitchen has red counter tops which he hates, but the red barns went very well with it.

Meantime, Shawn wants me to finish that disappearing 9 patch quilt and give to him. When I showed him the blog photo, he did not like the D9P. But when he saw it in person, he loved it. Now I also need to finish my daughter's quilt and my hubby's quilt. 

But, tomorrow this lady will be at the Quilt Show in Paducah. I have never been and so excited!

Yeah for you going to Paducah I have gone once and it was so much fun and I was amazed at the quilts. The quilt museum is worth a visit if you have the time. Looks like your son really loves your work, how wonderful!

I was at the Quilt Show yesterday and LOVED it! I'll be going back (it's just under 3 hours from here, so a day trip is certainly doable).

Of course your son loves your quilts ... who wouldn't? ;-)
