Featured Quilters

Guess what... I was asked to be a featured quilter at our next guild show in February 08. Because I give away so many of the quilts I make, I am going to have to get super busy finishing some quilts to keep, so I can fill the display case that will be mine. My pal, Sally, is the other Featured Quilter, and she is just like me ... gives away most of what she makes. She and I are going to have a busy few months getting ready for the show.

I am having fun discovering old UFOs. Some of them I had forgotten about! I worked on this most of today.

These blocks have to be about seven years old. My friend Carrie from Nebraska and I made blocks in double sets and shared a set with each other, so we each ended up with the same pile of blocks (20 of them). I have been intending to work on this and never dreamed I would let it sit around this long. I am liking this tipsy turvy setting I'm using. I hope to make this quilt queen size. I have never made one that large, and my hubby and I use a store-bought quilt on our bed! It's time to get this one done and have a home-made quilt, finally, to cuddle under.

That's all my news for now. I have to get up early for work tomorrow and already stayed up too late. Where does the time go???

Congratulations on being the featured quilter!! The blocks look good and I like that setting.
I'll admit that we use a store bought quilt on our bed, too. Actually we use about three quilts on our bed, and the store bought one goes on the top because it protects the 'real' quilts from the perils of children and cats.

Congrats on the honor. Good luck getting those quilts made. Sweet kitty in the last post - love the coloring.

I have the same problem - since I give so many quilts away there aren't that many left to *show*.
