LOCAL QUILT SHOW...

I entered a few of my hand made quilts in a local quilt show this weekend. My Grandmother's Fan Quilt won 1st Place in the Pieced Category. I received $10, 4 spools of Cotton Quilting Thread ($52 value), a large tote & a blue ribbon.

I had a gentleman come up to me wanting to buy my Midnight Gardens Quilt, I politely told him it wasn't for sale. He kept complimenting me on this quilt and my work, even down to the quilt label. I think he was disappointed I wouldn't sale it to him.
Here is a past picture of my Midnight Gardens Quilt.

So, another quilt show done and now it's time to think and make more quilts for next year's show....hmmm, what to make??

CALENDAR GIRL REDWORK QUILT IS FINISHED....

This quilt is Finished! I stayed up late last night and got.

All the fabric used was from my personal stash...I thought about making flying geese sashing around each block, but decided against it as I wanted the blocks to stand out and not the sashing...keep it sweet and simple.

 I haven't decided yet to add it to my collection of quilts or donate it to PROJECT LINUS.

Here is a close up picture, so you can see the print I used and binding.

A QUILTING ADVENTURE BEGINS....

Hey friends, I'm still here. I haven't posted in a while..been busy making Project Linus quilts & afghans...20 quilts & 9 crocheted afghans since Jan, 1st.

Last night, I decided it was time for another quilt for my personal stash...and here is the first block. Carolina Lily, it will have the scrappy look, except the baskets will all be the same print. This will be a queen sized quilt. Hope I do this pattern justice.

TWO QUILTS FINISHED FOR PROJECT LINUS......


I worked on these the past couple of days, as it's too hot for this ole gal to be outside. These will be donated to Project Linus. Thank you to my internet friends Peggy & Bev for their fabric donations,..greatly appreciated!

I hope these will be loved as much as I loved making them.

When it gets a little cooler here, I will make more like the bottom one as I have more of that fabric. Until then, this ole gal will be picking up the crochet hook to work on some Project Linus afghans.
