i've been working on several projects this week. one that i'm almost finished with is an I Spy placemat for toddlers. i'll post a picture when its done. i'm going to sell it in my etsy shoppe whenever i get that up and running. the other project that i completed was a wall clock. i belong to my sister's prairie quilt guild in wichita ks. they are having their quilt show the last week of june and neither my sister nor i will make it. we each made a wall clock for them to sell in their auction. hers is paper pieced and mine is the dresden plate design. they both came out pretty good. i'm curious to see what they end up selling for. their show is absolutely WONDERFUL if you can make it there. it is huge with lots of interesting vendors, great food, a fun auction with a professional auctioneer and last time (its held every 2 years) there were almost 1,000 quilts. i had my miniature I Spy quilt judged and came in 3rd in the miniature division. i was pretty proud of that.I Spy quilts are my favorite to make and i've made tons of them. they take more time but i find fussy cutting the squares and sewing them together very peaceful and calming. they had a famous quilter do the judging but i can't remember her name! it was Hari or Harriet something. (it wasn't harriet hargraves altho i've taken one of the best classes ever from her). you can google Common Threads Quilt show and get information about it.
i hope everyone has a great day. i plan on it! nancy
