There seems to be a theme going here!
Labor Day weekend is the annual County Fair.
I entered Coastal Lily along with a couple other quilts.
I was happy to see that I won first place along with Best of Show
for my quilt.
My wall hanging got first place also and my other large quilt got second place.
It had been in the same category with Coastal Lily.
I have been so remiss about blogging that I don't think I have shown my progress
I was working on this with Nicole at Sister's Choice blog and Thelma...
Cupcake n Daisies blog. Thelma whipped up 4 blocks into a sweet little
wall hanging and was finished pretty quickly.
Nicole and I are still working and making slow progress.
I am sure my progress is slower!
I haven't used Kaffe fabrics in a long time... but I always love
how lively a quilt will look using his bright and bold fabrics!
Here are my blocks right now.
Here is another view... more spread out.
Do you see the stem fabric?
I was reluctant to use the black and white fabric... but it just seemed
to call out to me.
I channeled my inner Aussie and went for it!
I'm glad I did. It's kind of fun and gives a little attitude to the blocks!
I also am working on a Scrappy Sprouts quilt.
I am using American Jane fabrics.
I am combining a couple of features from a few of the
patterns I have admired.
This is going to be done quickly... because I will be teaching it at my quilt
retreat next month!
I have a few irons in the fire right now... and don't seem to have enough
time to come up for air.!
We all do that don't we?
I also have a quilt exhibit in Yosemite National Park that will be at the Wawona Library for
three months. I will be installing that next week! I don't know exactly when I will
fit it in... but it's on my calendar!
