New Quilty Box!

My Mother's Day present arrived today in the form of a Quilty Box. My daughter bought a subscription for me for Christmas and I have been enjoying one of these every month since then! Lucky me! There are featured designers in each box and this month is Alex Anderson. Fabric, thread, Quilters Select tape, fusible and their 5x5 ruler. I just want to say that some one at a quilting retreat had a quilters select ruler and demoed it. It has a side that DOES NOT SLIP! I bought a 12x6 but now have a trimming ruler as well. These are really great. If you see them give one a try and see what I mean. I even like the markings better.
Any way, excuse my going on but this is my favorite box so far! Thanks for reading!

Going to the Show

This is the art quilt I made that will go to the Sauder Quilt Show. I will drop  this off tomorrow. This is paint and thread on black fabric. My last year's quilt using this technique did quite well. But we'll see. One can never count on anything where shows are concerned. I am just happy to go and enjoy everyone's work. Quilting is such a time consuming passion that we need to appreciate all the time and energy that goes into making. I really love patchwork too but have never entered one into a show. I am thrilled to get those done! Anyway, wish me luck!

New Workl

This Bunny is my new painting and lives (for now) in the same room where I plan to use the Sarah Fielke BOM Down the Rabbit Hole quilt I'm working on. We're not supposed to post BOM pictures but I am busy appliqueing and learning new tricks. Thought I would share my painting. I call him "Harvey" since he is 36" tall. My spare bedrooms have some whimsy in their d├ęcor to amuse my grandkids.
