Quilting at the Hotel

Well, hello everyone from Washington DC, where I am at a higher ed conference at the Omni Shoreham Hotel...

I always feel very nostalgic at this hotel, because this is where Jackie Onassis and Jack Kennedy had one of their first public events during their dating period - there are wonderful photos of them so young and beautiful...

I know people who say "I hate hotels" and "I can't sleep in hotels" - well, let me clear that up:  "I love love love hotels"... nice ones, anyway - I won't be singing the praises of a Motel 6.  But, a great bed, a spatial room, lots of great little ethnic restaurants in walking distance... what else could I need...

WHY, SOME QUILTING, of course...

So, I am working on THESE...aren't they just stunning??  I brought the pattern copies, and the freezer paper, and now am using the hotel iron to put the designs on the red fabric, which will become a red on white cutaway applique...  these are patterns from a quilt design by Sue Garman called Sarah's Revival - wonderful cutwork designs....  I'll probably be working on this for quite some time!!!!

In meetings of the conference most all day today.   But these lovelies will be waiting for me tonight!!

Happy Quilting,

Kate
