Crazy Quilt at show

I visited my sister in Santa Cruz yesterday and we drove down to Watsonville to attend the Pajaro Valley Quilt Association's annual quilt show. I hadn't intended on taking any photos, but this one spectacular crazy quilt stopped me in my tracks.
Crazy Quilt''

The quilter made a block for each month but instead of incorporating the 12 blocks into a quilt, she hung these in a series of three panels. I'm ordinarily not a big fan of crazy quilts, but I thought this was spectacular.

My purchases:


A yard of each for a baby quilt

Some cute novelty fabric (who could resist a cat doing the hula hoop?)

Vintage button, an impulse purchase

A couple of non-quilting related photos from my daughter's Chinese New Year performance at school last Thursday:

Ooh, what a beautiful quilt. I love it when quilters think and sew outside of the box. Thanks for sharing it with us!

Your daughter is beautiful! Sew is the fabric, but even up against hula hooping cats, she's the cat's meow!
