My daughter Debbie and I attended the Quilt and Textile Arts Show in Modesto on Saturday. There were over twenty vendors anxious to sell their product. There was every type of material imaginable in all sorts of colors. Also there were yarns, buttons and beads. One booth that caught my attention was vintage Singer Sewing machines. Some were in bright colors, flower motifs and of course the original black.

The quilts on display were colorful, whimsical, funny and beautiful. The talent and hours of work were shown in the making of the quilts. I was so inspired and since I have gotten into quilting, I had Debbie snap a few photos of the quilts. It seems sometimes my imagination takes a vacation, so I need to be inspired by others.

Sue Schlange was one of the two "Featured Quilters." We found every one of her quilts that she had brought to be displayed. We actually caught up with Sue just as she was going to lunch. I had to have a picture of her with one of her beautiful quilts. Just looking at her work, I know how many hours that it has taken her to put together those beautiful quilts. One of her quilts that she made was dedicated to her friend Bettie. The quilt was titled "For Bettie with Love". Sue appliqued teapot blocks while her friend waited for a kidney transplant. Bettie received her new kidney through the Paired Donation arrangement involving four donors and four recipients.
