2011 Mid-Valley Quilt Guild Challenge...completed!!

The theme of the challenge is: Let me tell you about my best friend.   Obviously my best friend is my husband.  The design idea came to me as soon as I heard about the challenge but I had planned to do raw edge applique or something in a Mary Lou Weidman style.  Clock ticking, time running out quickly, I decided I could try drawing (doodling, zentangle).  It was so fun to do, just letting the spaces fill with the thought of the moment.

Another winner - Veggie Cats!!

Just sharing a photo of Michele Byrum's Veggie Cats quilt.  She does the most amazing applique and then lets me play.  Of course I can't help but be inspired.  I love the lettuce mix fabric, and the black cats in the background.  This quilt won first place in Mixed Techniques AND Long Arm Hand Guided Quilting at the Northwest Quilters Show!  I'm pretty sure it will be showing at the Mid-Valley Quilt Guild show in Rickreall, Oregon the weekend of April 21, 22, and 23rd, 2011.
