Trying to keep up...

I promised myself that I would not let either of my blogs fall behind, so here goes:

Jan's Africa Quilt -- another beauty.  This is Jan's second (or third - not sure) Africa-themed quilt.  On this one she used place mats for the blocks -- how ingenious!  Leave it to Jan to figure out a really cool use for something that was intended for that use.   I'm sure we can look forward to more Africa-themed quilts from Jan, she's going on safari, again!

Here is Ann's black, white, and red quilt.  It is for her 7-year old grandson.  I think she did a fantastic job with this one - there is even a matching sham!

And then Karen's Diamonds Jubilee bargello (pattern by Nancy A. Smith - QuiltnNana Creations)

If you want to see me stitching the borders on this quilt, click here -- visit my youtube channel for other videos as well.

PSL Crazy Quilters 2012 Show

What a show!  Really, not only because it is one of the guilds to which I belong, but because it truly was an amazing show.

I would love to post every quilt and comment on all my favorites, but I would probably fill up my blog in one post and possibly crash the site (I tend to babbly on and on).  So I'll give you all the wonderful links and you can view it all at your leisure.

Here is the link to the Awards -- make sure you view the entire document as it is three pages long.

And here is the Show Page, which has everything, but mainly the slideshows -- one of all the quilts, and one of the member challenges.

For more info on the PSL Crazy Quilters, please visit there website:  http://www.pslcrazyquilters.com/

And here's a great pic of me, my Mom, and my Sister in my booth:

Enjoy the slideshow, and make sure you check the website for more information about our next show in 2014!

What the heck happened to January?

Catch up... my most famous saying of late.  I have no idea what happened to January.  It is gone, I would have to look through my computer to see if I actually quilted anything because I truly don't remember.  So hold on one minute... Wow!  Okay, so a few quilts happened in January, as usual, here goes the super-quick condensed version:

Valerie had two quilts:

Susan had a giant beauty:


And two from Jan:

And last, but certain not least, Nancy's:

Hold on cause this is going to be a very long post...  Then before I even knew it... February!  My Mom and Sister flew in for our local quilt show -- cause I'm special like that!  Really, it has become a sort of tradition for them to come for the show, and let me tell you, they are the biggest helpers ever.  Here we are are Day 1 of the show:

and again on Day 2 of the show:

I must say a super thank you to Theresa for taking this picture.  She snapped an aerial photo of us and let me tell you, I'm going to have her follow me around with the ladder for every photo from now on!  You just look better with an aerial photo!

Here is a photo of my ribbons from the show -- from my own quilts and also those I quilted for customers.  There is one more ribbon on the way, it needed to be ordered -- who knew that the group door challenge would take Viewer's Choice - awesome!

There are a million more photos that I would love to share, but you'll have to wait and see them on the guild's website once I finish the slideshow.  Don't worry, I will most definitely post a link.  Until then, here is the Awards Listing.
