Lately I've been working on a challenge quilt. My LQS gave us 4 pieces of fabric with instructions to create a 24" quilt. The fabrics are the burgandy, the aqua with flowers, one of the greens in the leaves and a larger floral (not in this part). This needs to be done by June 30th so I REALLY need to get going on it. This part is 16" square... the next part is an appliqued border plus a few extras.

Our quilt show was this weekend... we had some beautiful quilts in it. I meant to take pictures but I was so busy working, I forgot to :( I worked on counting up votes for the viewers choice. This was quite an eye opener... it's fun to see what everyone loves. We also had a quilt appraiser on site. She had a few quilts that she was working on in the backroom and THEY WERE WONDERFUL! One was in almost perfect condition form the late 1800's. I took a little time to study it. The binding on it was on 1/8" wide (well, actually it was the backing turned to the front). This one is going to get a high appraisal... it's museum quality.

Back to the sewing room for me... I am determined to meet the deadline for my challenge quilt. I think I'll start using this blog now that my other blog has disappeared ONCE AGAIN. They have been having trouble with spammers and I just dont want to keep starting over again. Hopefully this blog will be around for a while.

Deb- isn't that a coincidence? LOL I was thinking about doing a blog on that blog site you were on before, but when it went down again, I decided to do one here at Blogspot.com. Look who was already here....
I noticed when our posts were right next to each other on Q&N this afternoon.

Hopefully you (we) won't lose our work here...

Deb,
So glad I found your new blog. You will like this one, I haven't had any problems.

Your feathered star is lovely, can't wait to see how it progresses.

How have you been? What are you & Al doing for the 4th?
Hugs,

My American Jane quilt is coming along nicely but not without many HICCUPS. I added a small border on the New York Beauty center... A bla...
