New York Sunrise/Quilt Odyssey Show in Hershey, PA

It has been so hot here, that I stayed in and was finally able to complete the New York Beauty wall hanging top.  I am re-naming it NY Sunrise.  It was all paper pieced except the pie-shape, so it was a little bit of a challenge, but I am becoming more comfortable with the process.  I am going to machine quilt it with a simple design.  The fabric and pattern speak for themselves.  I found a great batik backing with purples, oranges and a little green.  It should make a nice accent.  Now it is back to the double wedding ring and ocean waves tops.

I did take a little time to drive up to Hershey, PA on Saturday to go to the Quilt Odyssey show. It is only a 2-1/2 hour drive.  My daughter and granddaughter went to chocolate world and I went to the show. They gave out samples at chocolate world.  My granddaughter is 2 years old.  You get the daughter looked like box of chocolates exploded all over her clothes. :0)   It is a nice show, not too big and just enough vendors.  This time I had my camera with me, but forgot to check for a memory card and the memory became full after 3 photos.  But the quilts were gorgeous.  I will post in a few days.
