It's Friday again, summer is almost here, and the weather is finally gorgeous! I attended Lilli's kindergarten program tonight - it's hard to believe she's finishing up her first year of real school! She did a great job - quite an improvement from her 3-year-old preschool program, when she danced behind her classmates, laid down on the steps of the stage, and generally created mayhem!
So - - - are you ready to get your whoop whoop on? I think I'll share mine first, then announce the winner of last week's giveaway. I've got a few finishes that I'm particularly proud of to share this week!
This quilt is a great example of God making sure we have exactly what we need when we need it! We received a request for a quilt for a man who was just diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. He in his 40s, works repairing Harleys, and his favorite colors are black and orange. When I went to see what was available for a quilt for him, I found this great stack of American Chopper prints and panels, and the black and orange flame print! A little drafting on graph paper, a few solids and voila! A great biker-friendly quilt!
Next is the swoon quilt - completely finished and ready for gifting! I had fun quilting this one - some of it still looks drunk but it was an enjoyable experience. And it has great texture!
And then there's the Celtic Solstice quilt - blocks pieced and donated by Sharon, and I put it all together and quilted it! This quilt is so beautiful - I already took it to church to remove the temptation to keep it! It will be a wonderful quilty hug for someone in need very soon...
So - - - can I get a whoop whoop??
And now, the moment many of you have been waiting for! First of all, let me say that I appreciate every one of my followers, and wish I could send each and every one of you a big prize package to say thank you! But since I can't, let's find out whose name was chosen by Little Miss Random….
Monica, I'll be contacting you by email today to get your snail mail info! Congratulations!
And now it's your turn!
