next up

This is a top that I made in preparation for a workshop with Ruth B McDowell in 2009.  I wasn't happy with the composition, so it never got quilted.  However, for several reasons that I won't mention just yet, it is time to become a real quilt.  

Yet, it will have to linger a bit longer, as I am off to the great north west to visit friends in Seattle and my daughter in Portland.  Got my bags pack and early to bed, since I'll be getting up in the wee hours of the morning to catch my flight.  I will tell all when I return.
 I am soooooooooooooooo excited.

If that is the preparation for Ruth's class, I'd love to see what the class project turned out to be! Safe travels

You're a big freakin' tease, Mary.

(PS, your good vibes helped - I did win first place for "Superior Machine Quilting, Domestic," and a first place from the NQS for the same category at the OCQG show!

Thanks! Now, I can't wait for your news. Enjoy your visit ~
