Quilt Market

Walking through Quilt Market today wearing my hand knit sweater and who should come running up to me but Kaffe Fassett saying, "Oh, can you wait here....... Brandon Mably designed that sweater and he has to see it." So, off to get Brandon, lots of nice complements then a stop by the booth for a photo. What fun!

Ready for the quilter!

My Oh My Stars quilt top is done. Can't wait to see it quilted. The photo shows only part of it. I couldn't get far enough away in my sewing room for a complete photo. It will be part of our Glad Creations Lone Star quilt show in January 2011. Check out Dee's blog too. Her Lone Star in Ohio looks wonderful. The staff is really working hard to make a wonderful exhibit. I can hardly wait to see what everyone has made.

Oh, My Stars Quilt

I'm finally back to working on my Lone Star Quilt for the Glad Creations show in January. I hope I get it done in time! I have a quilting date in December! I'm making the Oh, My Stars Quilt by American Jane patterns. I absolutely fell in love with this quilt when we saw it at market. I've got all the lone stars done and all the 132 four inch stars done. Luckily I had the Wing Clipper Ruler to help make all those tiny flying geese units for the sawtooth stars. Here's a sneak preview of the parts. Next step is to sew the little stars together into sashing units. Then I can start sewing the top together. I think I might actually finish in time!
