One section of the show exhibited contest quilts. Here are a few of those in the "Traditional" category that attracted my attention.

Another flower sampler, this one by Kayomi Tamai.
Spring symphony ... by Harumi Asada
"Hexagon no Naka de" (Inside the hexagon) by Yoko Ozaki
Flowers seemed to be a big part of many "traditional" quilts.
Life has been getting busier and busier with only a few rows of quilting getting done from time to time.
On Sunday I will attend a special Court of Honor, to be held at the U.S. Ambassador's residence.
One of the Scouts receiving his Eagle rank is one of my former cub scouts, so I carved him a wooden eagle neckerchief slide to celebrate.
After writing a note to go with it, I looked around for a small box to put it in ...
but the last box I had went a week ago with a slide carved for my younger sister's grandson who had met the"Cubmaster's Challenge" by completing his final Arrow of Light award, doing every requirement in the book.
Then, I recalled some fabric that came to me from my Blogging friend, Cheryl. What better than a fancy pouch with scouting symbols to hold the gift? Thank You, friend!
