Now we're back at home, and I've had my nose to the grindstone, busting out those customer quilts. This coming weekend a couple of my friends and I are going on our yearly retreat. We'll do a little shopping, a lot of sewing, and then I'll come home and start on my Christmas rush!

BTW, does anyone know why I was able to do two loads of laundry, and cook four loaves of stromboli before blogger was able to load these four pictures?
Have a great evening!!

As I was working on this block I noticed that this little stinker has his fingers crossed while holding his sign that says "galaxy peace." I got a kick out of that one!

Sherry liked these color combinations. We are able to add our fabrics along with whatever came with the blocks.
Each participant will complete one large block (Block A) and two small blocks, for a total of three blocks.
You may make two of Block B or two of Block C. Note that both of your small blocks should be the same
size. They can be the same pattern or they can be different.
Block A should be 12 ½” x 12 ½ “ unfinished, for a finished size of 12” x 12”
Block B should be 6 ½” x 6 ½” unfinished, for a finished size of 6” x 6”
Block C should be 3 ½” x 12 ½” unfinished, for a finished size of 3” x 12”

These are the quilts of mine that were hung in the show:
Last year Frieda Anderson came to our guild to teach a workshop with her patterns and fabric. These are my version of her sunflowers. I machine quilted the flowers, and did some hand stitching in the background with hand-dyed floss. I have since added more stitching.This is the quilt I call summertime. It is NOT one of those cut up nine patches. (Only because at the time I made this quilt, I didn't know about that particular way!)
This quilt is called "Kinetic Energy". I made it spring 2008, but didn't quilt it until the week before the quilt show. I freehand quilted it with feathers, and leaf vines.
After the show was closed on Sunday, I went home, had one day to tie up some loose ends around the house, and pack for my trip to the AQS show in Paducah, Kentucky.
To be continued.........
