Fabric Adventure

Too bad Scott had homework...ha?  I visited a nice little fabric store in Walla Walla this morning by the name of Stash.  Therefore I felt compelled to add to mine.  My goal was to find a few pieces with words on them...I hit the jackpot!!!

What an Honor!!

Exciting day!!!  Just found out that "Seasons" won 2nd Place: Innovative, Wall, Mixed at Road to California.  The quilt belongs to Michele Byrum, of Salem,OR.  We seem to be a great team for so many reasons.  Michele gives me complete freedom to quilt as I please on her spectacular appliqued beauties, such a privilege for me.  Her designs are gorgeous and so well done I can't help but be inspired.  This quilt also traveled to AQS in Paducah, KY.
The judges comments were exciting: Quilting is beautifully done, evenly distributed, and, happily, not excessive.  We had to laugh, so many quilts in the shows are excessively covered in stitching.  They are exceptional but just not our style.  Michele and I had to chuckle that we might start a new trend...NOT!

Shower Curtain

Shopping at Target over the weekend I came across a shower curtain that looks just like my blog background.  First response...I could redecorate the bathroom!!  Second response...maybe not.  Retrospect...I wonder if the fabric was cotton?  I could use it in a quilt.  Might have to check

Thanks Nancy!!

I spent the day getting tremendous help from an amazing lady to get this blog going, more interesting, and just in general to know what I'm doing.  We had a few glitches along the way and I just figured out what we did wrong.  I am SO 

Currently I seem to have two blogs.  One has a cool machine and I'm following a bunch of great blogs and on this one...well, on this one I have one very appreciated friend "following".  I think we made great strides, the learning curve is a couple of notches less steep, and I'm looking forward to sharing along the, thank you, Nancy...I appreciate you so much.
