Won My First Best in Show this Weekend!

I am so happy with how this quilt turned out – AND I had the best long-arm quilter around – Kathy Ezell – Kathy should have gotten a ribbon, too!

I’m still waiting for all of you who started this quilt to finish it up.



Evelyn’s block number 5 – “Pair of Golden Eagles, complete”

Two Eagles “Two very ugly birds with far too many leaves. Still I’m in no hurray and plan to finish the quilt and even appliqué the borders -eventually.”

~ Evelyn

Almost done – just need to finish the binding!

I am so excited that I really finished this quilt. Yes, I didn’t applique the borders, but I like it better this way.~Susan

Susan’s block number 12 – Flower Bed finally complete

susanI thought I would go crazy with all the leaves on this block. It was the most monotonous of the blocks, but I love it now. this was my 19th block – on my last one now – I saved Hannibal for last since he is the most important image on this quilt to me- i found out this week that he died from eating a poisonous shrub. How sad! Poor thing.
