Rock 'N Roll Quilt Show

Have you ever looked at quilts while listening to rock 'n roll music? That's what I'm doing tonight and here's why. Remember my daughter, the Wild Child? Remember when I posted photos of her band at one of their outdoor performances in the snow?


Well, tonight she emailed me a link to a My Space page where I could listen to their music. Since I haven't heard her sing since she was a teen, I think it's pretty cool! So, I opened two windows on my computer; I have her music playing in one while I'm looking at and posting photos of quilts I took at Jo's Little Women Club tonight in the other window.

If you'd like to check out the band, HERE's a link. Please keep in mind that these are amateur recordings; of the four, I think my favorite is the third one down called Walk On--probably because you can her her vocals best. She kind of reminds me of Janis Joplin or Pat Benatar. Boy, wouldn't I just love to go hear the band?! I hope I'll get the chance someday.

Now for the quilt show. The first four are Jo's Club quilts--this is a club pattern called Holiday Inn. The first three have appliqued centers, but the fourth has a pieced center--an option we were given in case we just didn't want to applique!





Here's Pam's Hat Party quilt--she took my class and I just love how hers has turned out, don't you?!


Thanks for stopping in!

I show that the blogs I follow are public and posted on my dashboard Is there something I am not doing correctly? I have no idea. This is all greek to me. It was god seeing you tonight also. Take lots of pictures Saturday for me, so I can see all the different fabric everyone is using. Your daughter sounds great, do you have a schedule for her band. It would be a blast to get a bunch of us to see them play. Nite!

The quilts are great. Wow lots of flying geese! Your daughter does sound just like Janis Joplin. Maybe better.

The hat quilt is really cute. My granddaughter would love it. As for me, those JLW quilts, I'm drooling here. Thanks for the quilt show and some home grown music.
