Pageant Highlight Reel / Beauties Pageant 73

From Bolt to Beauty World Headquarters has been felled by a virus lately—not a novel virus, just an everyday, butt-kicking virus. There has been some sewing but not much photographing, which means it’s the perfect time to look over past pageants and ooh and aah at others’ beauties ...

Look at the detailed free-motion quilting on Linda’s temperature quilt!

And Leanne’s Half Moons Afire—a free pattern—speaks to my complementary-color-loving heart ...

Then there is Chris’s long-awaited Miranda Day Bag, which has me thinking I need to wipe the dust off that pattern and make another one (see my own Miranda bags here, here, and here) ...

I wish you all happy and healthy sewing these days! I look forward to updating you on all the pretty quilt tops I have been working on. : )

  1. I'm happy to see you back, and that you feel better.
    Take care and stay safe in your quilting studio ;)

  2. Hope you are feeling better by now. Did the kids get it too? Hope it is just a regular cold and nothing more.

  3. Oh, get better soon! The allergies are a mess here, but so far, no virus!

  4. I hope everyone feels much better soon. Stay well, friend!

  5. Thank you Michelle for hosting Brag about your beauties. Hope you are staying well.

  6. I’m glad you like the FMQ on my temperature quilt. Thank you! Unfortunately, it’s been languishing while I work on something else. Now I’m feeling guilty about it not being done! :-) Even through the pandemic and self-isolation, there’s not enough time to do all I want to do! Take care of yourself! I have a friend who is five weeks into a virus (not corona) she can’t shake. Do feel better.

  7. Hi Michelle, thanks for hosting and stay well.

  8. Oh no, hope you all feel better soon! Thanks for showing us a few hightlights. Stay well xo Melanie
