welcome to Quilt Week

side 1
Hi readers!  It's Quilt Week here in Paducah - the AQS show starts tomorrow and we've had quilters from all over visiting the Museum already this week.  The weekend was full of errands and cleaning around the house, the Symphony and helping to set-up the Antique quilt show put on by the Rotary club.  Awesome quilts there this year - all Signature quilts covering about 50 years.  Tonight I got to attend the Awards Show & Sneak Peek and see all of the amazing quilts in the show!  We'll have busy days ahead at work and it's a fun time of year across town.

Amidst all of the prep and long days I managed to finish up my April :: Year of Finishes project: an Open Wide zippy bag using Noodleheads tutorial here.  I made the medium size bag this time around and used some fun scraps for the outside paired  with Michael Miller Ta-Dot in black and the inside is a grey Dear Stella print.  It's good sized and I'm not entirely sure what will go in it yet, but that's okay.  :)  It's pretty just sitting on my cutting table too.  
A Lovely Year of Finishes

Adding the finish to the link up over at Fiber of All Sorts - making 3 months of project finishes.
