Portland: Quilting, fabric and love...

Portland is a very fine town..
Above fabric from Fabric Depot...It comes in white and baby blue.
I had great fabric adventures with my girl
Can you believe she can walk to Bolt and Modern Domestic!!!!
Just to show Mrs. O'Quilts was really here!!

 Above and below...remnants..
Batik sales at Fabric Depot...irresistible...  
In case you did not know, love comes in many colors..

Gotta photo them whenever you see

Borrowed machine set up in my girl's home.
I can relax anywhere with a sewing machine.
I made 100 pockets for rice filled hand warmers for the holidays
Like to start early...can do the rice thing later.
Looking through some of the quilts I had sent my daughter,
I found this one, made of dresses I had worn/bought in India when 
I traveled with Pan Am.. My hippie days.
This one I had bought in Oklahoma City at an antique store.
It was a top, quilted mid 20th century  with purple polyester on the back
and tied with postal string.  I was dismayed to see the patches..over 100 years old..
fraying and decaying...sigh..a reminder that nothing lasts forever.
Someone loves their bargains....
Another happy quilting post.
Mrs. O'Quilts on vacation.
Happy Mrs. O'Quilts.

Love, love, love it!!! Your smile is contagious, dear lady. I must admit that I am envious of all the fabric "adventures" shown. Guess Portland will now be on my "bucket" list. ENJOY every moment!
