It's finished, yeah!!! I sent it off and will put a picture on here in a bit. To celebrate the quilt going off to be judged, I sat down and worked on my garden troll rug. He is cute! I put up a picture of a quilt my daughter wanted. Now my other daughter is requesting one. I pulled the fabric today, the excitement begins! This one will be dogs and blue. What have you made recently for family?

Happy quilting!

Working hard on my contest quilt, almost done. I have improvised a design wall on my curtains so I can look at my quilt and see if anything needs to be revised and/or added to it. I have a small flannel design wall, but it is covered in works in progress, therefore, the curtains. Todays picture is of two stools I have made, what fun to make! I can't wait to make another one, but I need to find some more foam first. It was a wonderful class from a lady named Sheila Snyder, and now I have plans to expand off into other shapes and designs. Need to find that foam! What fun classes have you taken recently?
Happy quilting!

Wow, amazing how time flies. I have been busy doing lots of family, kids, and art things. Here is a picture of our reduce, reuse, recycle idea as we turned plastic bags in to a cool rug for my kids school. It was easy and the material was free :) I have also tried knitting and fallen in love with crocheting. I think because crocheting is close to hand quilting. I have entered several contests (still waiting to here back from them) and put together some quilts for my house (actually for me to keep!). How many of you out there actually keep quilts for yourself??

Happy quilting!
