It's an exciting week here, for the Country Mouse. She is finally meeting the City Mouse! In person. She's no longer an invisible friend, who only seems real through blogging and emails. The City Mouse is truly a real live girl. And a super nice one, to boot! Some might even think they look like sisters!The City Mouse brought along some of her Farmer's Wive Sampler Blocks to hang out with the Country FW blocks. They seemed to play well together!
Yes, Cindy came to Kansas City to meet me and to participate in all of the quilting festivities going on here this week! We hit the ground running today, hitting four quilt shops before ending up at the Machine Quilter's Showcase where KC Modern Quilt Guild had a special display of our Kandinsky Challenge Quilts.
Cindy raved about how great they were. (What else could she say?!)
My Janie Sue quilt was entered by Mindy Peterson, the quilter. It was so fun to see it hanging in the show with so many beautiful quilts.
We happened upon this pretty quilt made by another blogger friend, Linda Hungerford. It is even more beautiful in person than in her blog pictures!
The theme for the show is Under the Sea. Here are a few of my favorite entries...

I came home with some new fabric, a new appreciation for machine quilting, a new "real live" girl (friend), and some happy memories!
