There were some stunning art quilts and some "I could make that!" quilts.
This was my favorite.
On the way home Nancy and I saw a sign pointing to an estate sale in Wadsworth. "Let's go!" we both agreed. We'd never been down that particular street. Nothing on the main level caught our eye, but in the basement we found a vintage Singer (which we didn't need), rolls of upholstery fabric, a couple of chairs in the midst of reupholstery -- and a table piled with fabric. "Fill a bag for $10," said the sign. So I did.
The bag held 32 yards and linen tablecloth.
The two bright prints are 58" wide. I had the red/tan print years ago and I still like it. Blue homespun and lots of madras plaid.

Back in the studio: the scrappy squares blocks I showed last week are now assembled and bordered. I solved the too-little-contrast problem by using dark sashing. Compare my version -- 75 x 75 -- to the original: Homestead by Jo Kramer that used 2.5" squares/strips. I used all but a 1-1/2" strip of the medium sashing and all of the dark brown. (In fact, I lacked 5" for the outer border.)
You can barely tell the difference.

P.S. This is my second favorite from the quilt show. It's woven, not quilted.
